Check out my new artwork! I wanted to make something with my One Little Word on it for this week's "What I Made Wednesday", and I just happened to have an empty cubbie in my new wall now that the Christmas decorations are put away. Since my word is "less," I wanted to keep it simple. I checked my supplies and discovered I didn't have any blank canvases. Bummer. I knew I would be totally busted if I went out and bought craft supplies, since my whole goal with this weekly challenge is to use my stash, so I scavenged in the garage. Guess what I found? A perfect, already-cut piece of plywood leftover from the wall project. I checked with John, and he said I could have it. Then I raided his spray paint supply.
After a couple coats of matte white spray paint, I had a clean canvas to work with. Next, I went through my stash and found some large stickers. I didn't want to actually use the stickers, I just wanted to use their outlines as stencils. I gently pulled the outlines from the stickers, lined them up, and stuck them to my board. After many attempts at getting them straight, I pushed them down to seal them.
I love how it turned out. I love its sparse look--it's so perfectly "less". : )
Have you made anything crafty lately? Leave me a link in the comments!
PS See that fabulous photo of the vintage camera in the middle section? It was a free download from Catherine over at Design Editor. I absolutely love it.
PPS John asked me if I was going to take a picture every time I changed something in one of the cubbies. This is the second time this week I've asked him to help me move the dining room table and chairs out of the room so I could get a clean shot. As I type, my dining room table is smack dab in the middle of the main hallway, and all the chairs are in scattered in my family room. It's basically the biggest fire trip, ever, and kind of a pain to get around, but totally worth it so I could get a good picture. : )
