I haven’t been posting enough on Lumberjocks ~ but in my defense I get a Facebook Feed of amazing Lumberjock projects and most days it satisfies the craving. However, it never really satisifies the “missing” I feel from not interacting with all my “buddies”.
I did this project a while ago. And haven’t posted it yet. It’s a custom order screen door to match the Dandelion Wall Hanging I made about a year ago. I used my routering/carving techniques to create the design in the door and this time I played with some stain and paints to create the weathered worn look the client requested. Then I decided to get artsy with the screen. I took a scrap piece of screen (photo 2) and a white paint pen to create some dandelion seeds (aka ~ fluff, parachutes, nusiance) floating through the air. I free-hand drew the fluff and it was so easy… AND SO FUN!!! I need to paint on my screens more! I was surprised by the inside or backside of the painted screen ~ it was nearly invisible! The finished door and painted screen (photo 4) was a surprisingly fun project.
