Time for me to share…
oH I’m so very excited!
For $12 and a bit of brain space usage, I’ve now got art for the wall in my bedroom.
Yesterday I mentioned that I was working with these gorgeous Op Shopped frames, and now I’ve given them new life and they are going to look ah-may-zing on my wall.
Ok here’s how I did it.
Started with my spunky frames
Went for a walk around our block to find just the right leaves, this is what I came up with…
Then this afternoon whilst the boys were sleeping, it all came together like this;
My trusty little Pink Power glue gun
Positioning of the leaves on a piece of water colour cartidge paper | why water colour? I absolutely ADORE the grain and texture that this type of water provides, and it was this ‘earthy’ grain that I KNEW would be a perfect and fitting background for these beautiful leaves.
All stuck down looking fabulous, now to put the frames all back together again, minus smudges and dust etc between the glass and the ‘art’…
This picture does no justice to the colours in the leaves | and that has NOTHING to do with the holder of the camera! I went with brown, green and red / pink shades in the leaves that I looked for, and I’m really pleased with the result.
I’ll let you know what it looks like once its up on the wall.
