|In the mood for some Art?
How about something easy inspired by nature?
I made this to perk up my rather small and boring guest bathroom, but you could make this big, or small and add it to any room you want.
You will need:
- An old book (hurray for recycled paper)
- Mod Podge
- Paint (optional)
- White paper
- Permenant marker (or any black marker)
- Paint brush (I like the foam ones best)
- Moss sheets (they can be found in the floral section of a craft store)
- A blank canvas
- Hot glue Gun
|Then I brushed on a second layer of mod podge and filled in all the wholes with another layer of paper. You don’t want the canvas showing.|
|So after I painted it on I even took a napkin and rubbed some off in areas where it was a little heavy, so you could see just enough of the words still.|
|Then out of the white paper I cut our some very basic tree shapes, and taking the black marker I just drew little marks on them to make it look like a birch tree.|
|Lastly I took the moss sheets and hot glued some moss along the bottom. This gives it a nice 3-D appearance as well as the look of rolling hills, or something. Then just trim around the edges.|
|Then hang it up and you are done. You could even pop a frame around it to make it stand out more. (which I may just do when I find the right frame) Or make a set. Whatever you choose, I hope it brings a smile to your face.
