Sharpie Paint Pen Girl's Profile II

As I said in my previous post, after finishing my first "profile" project  I wanted to do another one, and I already had an idea.
This time I wanted to put it in Sofia's playroom, so I had the idea to use a clipboard.
But instead of the usual black paper or vinyl, I used paint, or better a sharpie paint pen, I love these babies!
First, I used white spray paint to give the clipboard a nice light background colour. And a bit of red on the metal, again,  with my BFF...yes,  spray paint!
Next , I printed a  photo profile of my beauty:0)
This time I did not use tracing paper, but I cut the paper directly (as I printed it really big).
I traced the profile on the clipboard.( sorry if it is too light)
Then I traced it over with the sharpie paint pen
Filling it slowly...


The crackling, oh the crackling...this happened without planning (maybe because it was "oil" on acrylic? would have been a "fail",  but "alas",  I love this unexpected charm!)

well, she put on this "serious face" or " mom, what have you done face" but she loved it!

  1. What a great idea! I love the pop of red!!

  2. I love the crackling too! I think it turned out great! Can't wait to do fun stuff like this for my daughter when she actually notices ;) Thanks so much for sharing at my Throwback Thursday party and I hope to see you again this week!
