Chasing my dreams…

26 Mar

Its been a while since my last post. I have no real excuses just life rearing its ugly head again – its been a rollercoaster lately but I feel refreshed and back on track to chasing down my dream!

 

In honor of dream chasing I created a beautiful canvas as a constant reminder….

 

Here is what I was working with before:

IMAG1728

 

And here it is after a bit of Spray Paint and Vinyl magic:

Much better don’t you think?

 

(If you are interested in purchasing the above canvas is listed in my etsy shop now) www.rags2retro.etsy.com

 

I also made a 2nd canvas for a co-worker’s birthday….

 

Here is the before:

IMAG1725

 

And the after:

IMAG0006

 

Lets just say he REALLY loved the after and laughed when he saw the before!!

 

Lately I hit a few really great Estate sales with the husband so I hope to have a few addl projects to share with you soon so check back!

 

Until then I will show you a pic of my next project in the mix… bet you wont even recognize them when I am done!
