I am constantly keeping myself busy in my art space. I typically have a few projects on the go all the time. I wanted to share a few with you.
My cute little "beach" house is almost complete. I have to work on the backyard this summer, but that's another huge project that will come together eventually.
my rustic nautical welcome sign.
I had an old wooden heart that was really not my decor style at all, so I altered it into a mixed media piece. I had made a bunch of pieces out of air-dry clay and a silicone mold. They stayed in my stash for quite a while until I pulled them out and used them on this project.
this next one was quick and easy...(inspired by Pinterest)
I had a piece of wood that had broken off of a cutting board. I stained it with broken china distress stain. I then found the co-ordinates to my house and cut them out of vinyl. That was what took the most time - deciding on a font to use. The compass was also cut with vinyl and transferred to the edges.
and lastly, my new 24 x 36" picture that hangs in my kitchen. I have been downloading a lot of graphic design images from the hungry jpeg lately. They have a lot of great deals on images and fonts. The dogs were just too fun not to buy. The hardest part was piecing the 12x12 papers together to make it look seamless. I added some rope detail on the edges and some bling to the dog collars.
that's it for now, I have a few more things coming up (hint: Mother's Day) so I will see you then...
