My Chicken Wall Door

I've been playing for the last couple of days!
I've had this panel from a solid wood door and part of an old door knob. I've been wanting to do something with it for a long time but wasn't sure just what. Then with the arrival of my Susan Winget calendar for my kitchen I figured out what it was I wanted to do.
I painted the outside border with the Cherry Cobbler red that is on the bottom cabinets in my kitchen. Then sketched out my chickens. I used acrylic paints to paint the chickens and the vine around the border. The chickens aren't that detailed - not like my usual work - which works for what I wanted.
I took a bit of the paint I was using and wiped it over the door knob plate because the old paint that was left on it didn't go with my colors at all. It has a neat look to it now. I was unsure as how to secure the knob itself but used some of that epoxy putty that Billy Mayes advertised on TV - it works!
I like my new Chicken Wall Door and had a whole lot of fun working on it! Now to clean up my mess ;-)

who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
