Church Paintings

Last week I talked about how I sometimes acquire things and they sit for a year (or ten) before I create anything with them. Other times I create something right away with my junk treasures, as was the case with this box of tin that a friend gave me...
The raised arch shape immediately made me think of a church...
So I filled in the arch with white paint and blended in a little brown...
I added a door...
and, a cross and a wreath...

I loved it so much that I decided to do a series of churches...

Don't be too excited for me yet for having completed a project so quickly...I still have a box full of the tin!

Pin It

  2. Love how you saw a rounded arch shape and went with a church! These are so pretty and would make great Christmas gifts, too! I can't wait to see what you do with your box of tin!


  3. These are so sweet and creative! I love the simplicity of them and they have a deep message of the true meaning of Christmas.
