Key Cabinet

I thought I would show you a key cabinet that I upcycled a while back and never shown.  Before I started it was just plain wood but I didn't photograph it.  I started by painting the whole thing with acrylic paint.  I then added the grass (not very well), and white for clouds.  To get the effect on the clouds I just wiped bits of paint away until I was satisfied.  I then had a go at painting the trees.  I think the leaves and branches were good but not too sure about the trunks.  Anyway, when all the paint was dry I added some rub-ons and stickers.  Finally I coated the whole front with modge podge.

This was the first and only time I have ever attempted to paint a scene and I don't think I will be doing it again...
