Something else a little different to show today.

I’ve been working on this canvas for over a week now even though it has been planned for far longer.

SAM_0595I found the letters way back in May and that’s when I had the idea. At the time I wasn’t sure where the finished piece was going to live but once we started decorating the bedroom at the back of the house I knew this is where it would go.

I painted the canvas with the same paint as the main walls and the chipboard letters in the gorgeous damson shade of the feature wall. SAM_0598

The swirls are coloured with promarkers in Apple then toned down with Ivory. I added card candy, self adhesive gems and fabric flowers.


Thanks to Paddy for cutting the swirls out for me and to the very generous Lynn for the hot glue gun to stick all the bits and pieces in place.

As soon as it was assembled this morning my lovely hubby put a fixing on the back and hung it on the wall for me.
