Magnetic Lady and Wallpaper Happy

I'm back to making magnetic boards.

I'm using images from my roll of vintage wallpaper I unearthed at a sale last year.

It's a large roll.  I'm getting lots of projects out of it.  I'll share some of the other projects soon.

The frame is layered with the homemade paint from the Farragoz course.

The wallpaper has been applied to magnetic metal, and, cut to fit the frame.

With temperatures in the 50's (This feels rather warm after a winter of record lows), I've been working on projects all day.

As you can see, I'm a little wallpaper happy right now.  This tray was a salvaged table top. After my paint treatment,

I wallpapered the center.

This is another board in progress.  I'm finishing up the frame for this magnetic lady.

I have more painting, and, papering to do.

Don't forget the Special Villabarnes Discount on the Farragoz course.  If you missed my last post, click HERE for info.

See ya soon.
