Its owner had moved on to a bigger, better guitar, but wanted to hang onto this as a keepsake....
I sent it back to her as a piece of wall art - with a musical theme, of course! Now it will hang on the wall in her newly-decorated bedroom and blend in with the rest of her black, white, and plum-colored decor....
(Incidentally, this is not her new bedroom. This is a bookshelf in my living room.
Oh, hey, look - there I am getting married in the background. :o))
The owner asked me to do a black, cream, and plum themed-collage that included that Scripture, houndstooth, the musical "hearts" and Ichthys, piano, and sheet music... this is what I came up with...
If you're wondering about how I did this, it's a combination of decoupaged papers, acrylic paints, and watercolors.... top-coated with Mod Podge (love that stuff).
(Please note: this guitar is a child's starter guitar that is no longer used -
I do not recommend doing this to any instrument for which you paid a lot of money or that you play on a regular basis.)
Do you have a special keepsake, piece of furniture, or home accessory that could use a little sprucing up?
This was a commissioned piece, and I'd be happy to do one for you too!
