So this pretty little dressform piece was originally just a lump of wood, a piece of jarrah, an offcut from my friend, Amanda's new-ish decking. She generously handed over a box of jarrah offcuts to me, thinking that they might come in handy one day... and about a year or so later, I pulled out a piece and played around with it over the weekend.
I'm not overly confident working with paint, but I want to be, so I used the slap it on and see what happens approach! At the same time I painted the wood, I also slapped on the same colours on an old playing card - not thinking I'd use them together. But in the end they worked so beautifully together and I'm not sure I would have known what to do with a painted piece of wood without the playing card.
Now I can't wait to have some more time to play some with more lumps of wood!
