TURN DISTRESSED WOOD TO PICTURE FRAMES' ART AND CRAFT BLOG BY MIABO ENYADIKE

I love old wood, be it oak, mahogany, pine, ebony, any wood  that exist, this drives my insatiable need to collect old used wood from everywhere or anywhere I see them.  
                                                                   Sponsored
I love the well worn look of old wood and the amazing fact, that if you choose to sand old wood again, it just comes alive with a better surface and fantastic grain when  polished.  
         
                                                                                           
                                                                     
In my case it really does not matter what state it is in, I just love it because there is always a use for them.

Jogging back home one morning, I discovered a pile of wood probably used for skirting, kept outside a fenced compound that was been renovated.




              
Well yours truly not one to waste time, pressed the bell at the gate and waited patiently while my eyes were glued to this find.  
            
Eventually response came, I was greeted nicely by a  lady who came to the gate. She answered warmly, that was a good sign! and all I needed.

 I made my interest known about the wood to her, and if I could have them for free of cause.  I was playing on that warmness and using it to my advantage.



I could see she was taken  aback at this
request, but to my utmost relief she graciously agreed to my request.
                      

She was still a bit confused I noticed and she asked why I wanted them, I simply replied  coyly, I love to collect old used wood for Art. Thank you! I said. Ran home quickly  got a ride, and came back to pick them up.

WeddingAnyway, to cut a long story short,I cleaned and sanded them,  went to see my carpenter and joiner, they were turned to picture frames for me. 
                                
I framed some acrylic flower paintings, I had previously done in them as you can see, it looked good to me and I really love the old wood .....ENJOY!

HOW TO CREATE BLUE CHRYSANTHEMUM FLOWER . ARTBLOG BY MIABO ENYADIKE





                                               CHRYSANTHEMUM FLOWER 

Old newspaper, laying around the house or piled up in the house is sometimes distressing, specially if it is turning into a nightmare.

I know once a week the paper recycling truck arrives to collect paper, but my natural hoarding instincts, refuses to let go!.


 In my mind I'm thinking, I can use this pile for something I mean something, really.... really good and I ask myself  WHAT and WHEN?.


Well that time finally came, I thought about creating a series of mixed media paintings,with newspaper using acrylic paint.



CHRYSANTHEMUM FLOWER 

I chose the chrysanthemum flowers as my subject, I may not be a keen gardener, I just love flowers and how they bloom and color our lives.

 Besides that, my garden and that of my neighbours are filled with these chrysanthemum flowers, all popping different colors.

I love the blue because it looks out of place, amongst red, white, yellow and the greens.

HOW I MADE MY FLOWER ART.......
I created this Art by drawing the shapes of the petals on old newspaper, cutting out the drawing and gluing it to a wood board.

 I proceeded to paint the flower with blue acrylic and the background wine red to give the painting some depth so the flower pops. I sealed  my art with acrylic varnish 



                                                CHRYSANTHEMUM FLOWER 

Now,when I see the paper recycling truck passing by my house, I smile and wave wondering what would have happened, if I had let my old newspapers go hmm......... 


Enjoy my mixed media painting,my expression of the 
CHRYSANTHEMUM FLOWER SPECIE!
