Hello Everyone!! I hope you are enjoying your weekend as I am. I started out as I do every Saturday, plans to my craft room. So of 1:30 pm no cleaning has been done but Art was enjoyed!!
A couple weeks ago I found an old window in someones trash. The window wasn't broken and had lots of patina. So I took it home with me. I sanded off the loose paint. Cleaned the window of its dirt. BUT I left all the over spray paint and messy caulking. This to me gave it character.
I knew I wanted to add this window to my Paris themed bedroom. So I got out my Cricut and my Summer in Paris cartridge and started cutting. This was the first time I have used my 12x24 mat. I know it wont be my last. I so enjoyed working with this size cut out. I used some black and some white Contact paper. Below you will see the pictures of the cuts I made.
At first I was going to do the tower and the PARIS all in black. But once I got it together you couldn't really see the R in Paris. So I decided to cut around the R to make it stand out more. That wasn't to my liking either. So I decided to make the tower in White with black letters.
Here is my process:
It really fits well into my room. I hope you enjoy this post and make an art project for yourself.
