Fly Eagles FLy!

The Philadelphia Eagles stone/paver/brick is finished and ready to be sealed. This one taught me a lot and that’s always a good thing because it helps me improve. The logo design, while awesome, was truly a pain in the arse to paint on concrete. This however will be amazing to paint tile and wood. And I hope to start creating wood plaques and signs in the next few months.

I’m really happy with the way the eagle turned out on this one so I’ll continue to paint that but I’m going to change the lettering to a looser calligraphy style. Mod Podge might also help if I put a couple layers of it to create a smoother surface. I think I have some in the supplies closet so I’ll have to dig it out and give it a whirl. But I’m moving on from this one and once it’s sealed it will head to its new home.

Feeling the urge to paint some sunflowers so watch this space!



Bet Paints Bricks and Pavers

Decorative painting has risen to the number two position on my list of favorite creative outlets. Photography will always be number one of course. Last year I started painting rocks and it’s something I enjoy. The rocks that weren’t given to family or family are displayed on our fence. While lingering on Pinterest for inspiration I saw decorated bricks and concrete pavers. With a nice pile of brick edging stacked out back and a quick trip to Home Depot I was off and running with my paintbrushes.

The 12x12 paver was the first to get painted. I just wanted to paint some bright flowers on a black background to place outside in my yard. But what I really love painting is the brick edging. There are so many fun ideas formulating in my head for the summer, holidays and hometown pride. I can’t wait to sling paint on the rest of the bricks!
