I found this painting at Value Village for $17.99 and used a 30% discount to get the price even lower. I really liked the size of the piece and am a sucker for landscapes.
I’d been on the hunt for a painting like this after watching an episode of Buy it! Fix it! Sell it! where Tiffany Pratt bought a piece of artwork at an auction and added her own unique touch of vibrant colours and glitter to turn it into something fresh and modern (S01,E02).
I don’t have her skills but I figured with my vast collection of glitter, I could pull off something similar.
Just using some white glue and a small paintbrush, I painted thin lines or dots of the glue on the areas I wanted to accent and then sprinkled on the glitter.
Here’s a close-up shot of the little glitter piles spread around the painting. It was actually really easy to clean-up as I just pulled out the Dyson and sucked away the excess glitter.
Here’s the finished painting. It’s not too blingy (do people still use that word?) but the glitter does add some sparkle where the light hits it.
I took this shot as the afternoon sun hit it in my front room. It’s been added to a growing pile of artwork that I’m going to hang in that room. Definitely an eclectic piece for the collection.
