Juggling at The Whistling Elk

I have been posting a lot about painting lately!  I guess I am pretty fascinated with Paint Couture™ products so I am really enjoying using them and teaching about them….but don’t be deceived there are always other things going on at The Whistling Elk.  It’s the usual juggling act!

Freight coming in, new merchandise being unpacked and lots of garbage….grrr not my favorite activity.  Lots of beautiful art though!

Art at The Whistling Elk

While I was painting the vanity … pictures to follow … I was also working on hanging new art that showed up…and my first hit of Christmas items…yes! Christmas…So anyway I’ve been working on this little vanity in between unpacking new goodies for the shop.

Of course the Christmas is “blingey” as usual!Ch

OK… Here is the little vanity…it is actually laying on its back on the floor….when I first looked at this picture I was thinking why can I see my feet….haha ! as usual I almost forgot to take the before picture and was starting work on it….

Paint Couture!™ at The Whistling Elk

I wanted the vanity to say “pink’ and I wanted to use Paint Couture “LOVELY” but I was afraid it would be to faint….so I decided to undercoat it with French Polynesian Pink…hmmm that really did the trick.

Paint Couture French Polynesian Pink with some embossing started

I did a lot of embossing on this piece and in addition added just some plain stenciling later to fill in some of the designs.  I wanted a lot of embellishment on this piece.

Vanity with the Lovely over the French Poly then embossed and gilded with pale gold

I did distress this piece somewhat to show just a faint hint of the French poly pink.  I also lined the piece wherever I could with Angelic Paint Couture to make the pink stand out even more.
