Firstly I want to tell you that I am always heart bursting grateful that you guys & gals tune in to see what I have been up to!
I have been insanely busy and I plan to blog all about it in the next month! SO many wonderful things going on over here.
I recently co hosted one of our 2 yearly vintage markets and had many many things o showcase, then my phone went into recovery mode and reset...insert balling...I lost ALL the before pictures to ALL of my projects!! Less of a BAM factor for sure but none the less I will still post the after shots that I have.
This was a terrible old looking trunk when it hit my studio floor.
I recreated it for the vintage market in a soft ice blue and white with some silver arrows. Sweet and nice but no one wanted it...
As you might know I am the second half of The Alberta Dames, and We
hosted our Spring Market this June 6th, 2015 at Beautiful Vintage
Balzac Hall, in Balzac Alberta Canada just outside Calgary Alberta.

If you follow me, then you know that there isn't much I haven't chalk painted with the van Gogh Fossil Paint.
I have three stairs that come down into my studio and, snore bore....they could use some pizzazz-ing!
Yes, I did....
I painted them!!!
I chalk painted them with van Gogh Fossil Paint in Revenge Black and Chalk White!
I then free hand drew (YES, I'm a font whore) the little sayings...
~~Why Not Sing, Sip Some Wine And Create Beautiful Things~~
On the inner step I used various stencils for the designs.
The feather and tin tile looking stencil I helped design for Muddaritaville Stencils, the doily is bought from Walmart, and the bottom design elements are from Studio van Gogh.
--> BAM <--
I LOVE them and so does everyone else who walks into my studio!!
The sky is the limit on what you can create with this paint!
