We were given a random box of, well… junk, the other day, by the guy at the nursery; I thought it was sweet (he gave it to Punk to play with, I think) while Mr thought it was weird. It’s funny how differently we see things.
Anyway, there wasn’t much of use in there, except a really cool ice-cream scoop. There were a few coasters in there too which I thought I’d do something with.
I painted them with Gesso & wracked my brain; what would be something cool to put on a coaster?
When I think of coasters I think of pubs, bars, alcohol, music, glamour – maybe not the most child-friendly themes. I decided in the end to go with pretty girls, in the style of the Archie comics.
I went through a huge phase when I was younger of drawing people in this style & it was really fun to revisit that.
I covered them with a couple of coats of matt varnish, but even so, I don’t know if I want to use them as coasters after all.
More creative spaces here. (And, if you’re partial to a bit of meme, make sure to swing by Saturday, we have a bit of a homecoming….)
