Stripes, rope & birds… oh my!
Take a peak at my mixed-media nautical art. I painted a canvas red, some book pages white (leaving a few words on each strip), and then taped the pages and some rope ribbon onto the red canvas. The words that are left on the book strips say:
“telling me he loved me”, “you are so beautiful”, “vacations to the sea”, “by the shore”, “far away”, and “excitement”.
I also made a little bird charm out of shrink plastic…
This has been a rather crafty weekend :)
Today I made trip to the thrift store and picked up some old picture frames. I’ve spotted a few tutorials on how to make your own jewelry holder out of an old photo frame and decided to give it a try.
I scored all of these photo frames for $25! Below is the frame I chose to use for this project. I removed the glass, flower and backing from the frame.
Here are the supplies I used for this project: photo frame, spray paint, wire and a package of screw eyes.
The frame was already gold, but I wanted it to be shinier so I spray painted it with metallic paint.
I then screwed in the screw eyes and attached the wire at both ends. That was it! Below is my finished product. Pretty and functional, don’t you think?
