One day my roommate and I were looking around DI and we came upon a really great stamp collection. We bought it, no questions asked. What was the obvious step after that??? Make a Van Gogh.
I have to give most of the credit to my roommate. She was the master mind behind the whole thing. We bought a large canvas and borrowed some Mod Podge from the neighbors. We organized the stamps into: flags, fruits/flowers, pictorial, foreign, Christmas, and presidents. We then just did a color by numbers.
Flags with white background- sky
Flags with dark background-hill at the bottom
Foreign- swirl in the middle and the moon
Pictorial-peak in the middle
Presidents-Streak through the middle
The Christmas ones didn't make the cut, but I did use them later.
While we were working on our project we watched Charade. It seemed like an appropriate film while working on stamps. I have to admit about 3/4 of the way through this project (like 3 hours in) I never wanted to see another stamp again. It took a few days before I could feel good about it hanging in the apartment. Now I love it!
Attached to one of the stamps was part of a letter. We could only see a few words but we thought it was an appropriate signature for our work of art
