Thank you for stopping by my blog. I have been working on a few things. Some of them I can show you and some I have to wait to show you.
Today I covered a letter/word display. It made a wonderful addition for my craft room. I plan to be moving in July and my plans are to get a bigger better craft room. That way I can display some of my crafts. Its hard to spend so much time on something then have no place to display it. So I end up putting it in a box and forget about it. Hopefully my new home will have a bigger craft space for me. For now I'm in a 10x10 room and I am spilling out into the hall way.
Now on to the project. I had this letter/ word display for a long time. It was painted black. For some time now I wanted to change the color. The word LIVE and the black just wasn't working for me. I guess with Spring in the air and hopefulness that a spring breeze brings in. I wanted to change the color of my word display. I thought about just spray painting it green ( my favorite color). But for some reason that just wasn't enough. So I decided to decoupage the letters with old book pages That I had bought at a thrift store. Then I used a few felt flowers I made. I also had some spiritual stickers that I loved, so I added them. It was very simple to do and a lot of fun. I love the way it turned out. It will find a place on a shelf in my craft room. I'm hoping it will remind me to live my faith everyday. Someday's I feel like I'm not living up to the wonderful grace Gods gives me each day.
So look around you may have an old piece of art work that you can make your own. If you do please share it with me. Id love to see what you create too.
God Bless you
|This is what I started with.|
|I tore the book pages in to small sizes and glued them to the base in random order.|
|Dont forget the back too.|
|All covered. Now check for small spaces left uncovered.|
|Close up view of the torn paper. You dont have to use book pages. You can use any decortive paper you like. I just like the printed word.|
|All done! Close up view. When coverd just decorate with whatever you like. I used some stickers, metal butterfly, and felt roses.|
