Pinterest project- awesome sauce!

May 11, 2012 § 4 Comments

This took me a few tries, a painted canvas hot sauce love note! I first saw this card and placed it on my pinterest “to make” board. I think it caught my eye because my husband consumes a lot of hot sauce and the Sriracha bottle is so iconic. My canvas is 8×10″ and as always I sketch very carefully to get shape and scale right. The lettering was tricky, I tried to mask my letters with painters tape, but it was so thin that the paint leaked under so I redid the letters witha toothpick. The long skinny letter are my favorite part I believe.

And now it hangs on the “I love daddy” wall.

Corky

I thrifted this bunch of large corks. They were strung on a rope. They were once for stopping up demijohns of wine, and have a hole for an airlock while the wine ferments. They are all different diameters but one fit my damigiana from Italy perfectly! I hope to use the rest in cork art, kind of like this from my pinterest “to make” board.

Box of beauty

Found in a box from Italy today, love from a friend I cherish.  Such richness! That’s a quote from Little Women. It is awesomeness colored green and the biggest thing I’ve ever picked up from the post office.

And to give you some sense of scale:

Its called a damigiana or demijohn.
