COLOR therapy

Eight year old chairs (Before the spray can got them)
The photos below will enlarge.

After cleaning the plastic lawn chairs that circle the fire pit I thought they looked pretty faded and sad. They are still in good shape, they just needed COLOR therapy!
I gathered up every can of spray paint in the garage and let them have it!

Not bad. One was especially bad so I wrote all over it with paint pens and made it the HAPPY CHAIR! I'm thinking about doing theme chairs. TIME OUT chair, QUEEN chair, etc.
Any ideas?

Mona art

I really don't know where this photo is going.
I'm trying the "automatic writing" voo doo that
a good friend recommended. If this is the vibes I'm getting,
I can't envision the finished piece. This photo was printed on
a card stock board (black and white) in 1943.
The colors were air brushed inks and they were
a MESS to clean off the board. A little fabric softener in
water worked, brushing and dabbing with Qtips and paper towels.
I believe they are ready to party with their new make over.
She had a boob job and he got a new doo.

New art project

I'm really excited about this new project. I bought a vintage photo in frame at the Antique Mall to try out photo altering. I always look at the "people" and wonder what story they had. Who were they, how did their lives turn out. What wonderful things or tragedies did they experience.....waaaaay too up close and personal.
I feel a little bad about altering it but I read a quote...."nothing is so wonderful that it can't be changed." To ease my guilt I will have to think, Hey their own family put this photo in a junk shop!
Me: guilt-free!
Not totally guilt free. Reading the back of the photo frame makes me a little sad.
Did he come back? I think her spirit will LOVE being a Glitter Diva and possibly a walk on the wild side as a super freak redhead!
Take it away Rick James!
