What better way to learn that Spring is almost here than to see tiny crocuses and tulips pushing their way above ground? I have been on an outlet cover kick for a couple months now, and decided that the Scribbles Designs digi image #648 Heart Tulips would be perfect for my next one.
I used carbon paper to trace the lines of the image twice onto the cover. After using acrylic paints to color in the image and sky, I used black Copic marker to give my little scene a sharp outline. It really makes the whole thing pop. I always give my outlet covers 2 coats of varnish, and when dry, I screwed the cover back into the wall. This one is located in the guest bedroom, formerly known as my craft room. Don't worry, I cleaned out and organized my craft supplies, where they are nice and cozy in the basement.
I hope my DT project has inspired you to "think Spring" and fling yourself at your craft table. When you've created your Spring-themed project, hop on over to Scribbles Designs Challenge Blog and link it for your chance to win free digis from the Scribbles store.
P.S. (Below is the last outlet cover I painted for the guest bedroom):
Next stop, the living room. That's right, no room is sacred to my mad idea of painting outlet covers. Mwahaha!
