the new mantle and my little project
I love this new canvas. I wanted to add a different touch to the living room and the wall above the fireplace. I looked hard for the perfect picture, chalkboard, or whatever and just couldn't find exactly what I wanted (it didn't help that I wasn't even exactly sure what I did want). All I knew is that I wanted simple, neutral and a subtle pop of color.
So I decided to make this canvas. It's just scrapbook paper that I adhered to the canvas with spray glue. It kind of reminds me of an old map or journal or something because the writing is weathered. And I picked up the letters from Michaels. I dipped the feathers in gold paint and put them in these orange vases that I already had. Eventually I might hang a rod above the canvas and hang the letters from it. We'll see.
Isn't fun to dream up new ideas and re-decorate? :)
P.S. This was my craft for January! Another goal down. Feels so good. :) If you have no idea what I'm talking about go here.
