Fancy Mickey

Look! Silje painted Mickey's picture! Note his little lamb! I love it! Thank you, Silje!
You can have your pup or kitty or mouse painted too, just email Silje.
Over the weekend I purchased a very obnoxious ornate frame from Ikea. I can't lie Ikea is overwhelming! Way too much for me to handle, but I saw the frame awhile back and wanted it then but didn't have a use for it. But now! Now I do! Just look! The picture didn't completely fill the frame, so I used Anna Marie Horner fabric as a border. It's crooked I know, but I was so excited to put it up I didn't want to take it apart again. I'll fix it soon-ish.
So there you go! Fancy little Mickey painting!
 Please ignore the disaster on the desk.

What other mediums could I create Mickey in? lol Wool Mickey? Mickey on velvet?
Have you seen Coraline?
 And the two crazy old ladies that live in the downstairs apartment with the dogs?
If you have I bet you're laughing! 
Pin It
