Flower Boards by truemarmalade Flower Boards by truemarmalade
This is a gift for ~guerrilla-tactics, since he won my 10,000 page view thing (that was months ago).
I finally figured out a good stencil to cut, and found some old skate decks that I had in my closet.
The background is courtesy of ~petercolumbus, since he's much better at that type of thing than I am.
I'm slightly unhappy with how the stencil turned out though. I managed to cut some of the leaves in the wrong spot, no clue how though.

Lemme know what you all think. I'll probably be making more paintings on skate decks. They're much cheaper than canvas.
FULL VIEW is a good idea, you'll see a lot of the texture that way.

If you can, get old board from friends to practice on so you don't mess up nice new ones; or just use scrap wood to learn how different paints work on top of each other.

I can't figure out if you just painted over old boards, or if you just use damn good paint, cause those are too scratched up to be brand new. The design is pretty shaweet though, definitely one of those "BEST FRIENDS FOREVER" type board things.

truemarmalade Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2007
Yeah they're all old boards. I figure I may as well use them for something good rather than just trashing them.

I see, did you stop skateboarding, or just bought new boards?

These are ones that are worn out, with the tails too worn down or if they've run out of pop and got floppy.
