for the star wars fan…..


I have a few little boys in my life who love star wars….and I know about zilch about star wars….wait..I will tell you how much I know about star wars:
like, I know about princess leia from when rachel dressed up like her from friends tv series

and the millenium falcom from when duff made one on Ace of Cakes

and I know about the gold guy and R2D2 (or maybe that is the gold guy?) from the ride at disneyland. (oh i love disneyland!!!)
And I know about yoda…just because it’s yoda.
and I know that luke’s father has some voice issues..
and i’m out. I know. don’t tell anyone.

anyways..I wanted to make a star wars piece of art for an upcoming birthday….:


I have a bunch of canvas from my high school days and a few from the D.I.  I mixed some navy blue and black and painted them…(that’s what I love about canvas and paint…make a mistake and paint right over it!)

while it is drying…..
 I went online and typed in star war ships and found some images that I cut and pasted and printed out. (now, this is where I wish I had a little knowledge about star wars….cause I don’t have a clue if these are right…they could be from star trek for all i know!!)

I also copied the star wars logo

 Once the dark is dry…I sprayed the whole thing with a clear gloss…..and when that dried…
I went back and took some white paint and watered it down like crazy and then splattered the canvas all over.
see the spill I made..oh I mean see the milky way I made?
and when that was drying….I cut out the images…..(you could be those removable walls stickers they have all over….but I was going for cheap!)


i got the star wars in gold so it would stand out on the galaxy.
Now when the board’s white splatters are dry….I took my cut outs and mod podged them on…
and let dry.
(do you see the non gloss of the mod podge? (I guess you could buy glossy mod podged…but I used what I had!)
the drying takes forever.
okay…maybe not forever but I hate waiting.
And when it finally dried……FINALLY
I sprayed it with the clear gloss again.
and waited for that to dry.
Then I went back and fixed my “milky way”
added some explosions…I’m guessing there are explosions in star wars I mean it’s star WARS right?
(I sprayed clear gloss over my paint when I was finished.)
and then I hung them on my son’s wall…and it’s probably the worst wall…opposite a window and that means GLARE!

 the end.
