A yummy, colorful rack of drying fabric scraps. Gotta get everything lined up for my "new" sewing machine! I can't wait to dive right in! My brain has been filled with ideas!
Trying out a new style of light switch covers. This style is a bit more challenging because there isn't as much room for artwork. It poses a new challenge for me. It's a good challenge though!
Remember those pictures above my fireplace I've been talking about. I found these 24"x24" canvas squares in the clearance section of JCPenny.com. They came in sets of two so I bought two sets. Quite hideous, in my opinion. I took this picture after I had already painted the sides.
All I did was mod podge four sheets of patterned scrapbook paper on each canvas. I'll hang all four above the fireplace for a huge collage (or as husband called it...a checker board.). I learned a few things while putting this together.
- The canvas was suppose to be 24"x24" but they weren't exactly square. Some fudging was required.
- I would not recommend mod podge for adhering paper to canvas. It was all I had at that given moment so I used it. I ended up with bubbles and ripples. I think it's because the canvas wasn't stretched tightly enough. Oh well, good thing it'll be hanging up high enough.
- Next time I'll use scrap wood instead of canvas. It's easier to work with when using mod podge.
- It was a fun, easy, cheap project! Try this one at home guys!
