Hello Sweet Friends,
How are you??
Hope you might be having a bit of
warmer weather too. We are up to 80
degrees here in Florida today, and we
are going back into the 60's tomorrow,
so happy about that, as I am not ready
for our Winter Season to be over.....
but the break was nice...and timely
as you will read. lol
I have just been trying to get the
house back to normal and washing a
ton of laundry.....as my washer and
dryer are in the garage and when it
was so cold..........I did not want to
visit out there!! lol So now all the
laundry is done but folding the last
load, so quite happy about that!
Thought I would share with you
how I made some quick wall art
today......I have been decorating
the family room in greens, shiny
golds and white with some touches
of robins egg blue.....
So this is how it all started............
This was a picture I wrapped for
Christmas and it was a subtle herringbone
pattern in green, which I used as a table
runner a few years back, so since I didn't
have all my wrapping paper out yet,
I grabbed it out of my stash and then
hung some ribbon on it, and it looked
way better than this picture makes it
look for sure........lol
Just a bad picture.!
Here is an upclose shot so you can
see how it really looks...............
It is a very thick good quality paper
as well, so does not tear easily
which is very helpful.....
Since we happened on a new picture for
over the fireplace, I wanted this wall to
have sort of a similar look, so kept thinking
what could I do with this wrapped picture
cause it would go....but what could I
do to make it look like art work.........
Well, after praying about it, I believe
the Lord gave me an idea.........
I could string botanical prints on it......
So I went to google images and looked
for some, but had trouble finding the
right size prints, and then came upon
these pear prints......3 of them as you
will see below...
So I printed them all......
with the intentions of running jute
across and pinning them on with tiny
clothes pins, had the twine and thought
I had the clothes pins, but can not find
them anywhere, so since I am not
wanting to slow down my progress,
to tape them on...........so I rolled large
pcs. of masking tape and stuck it on
the back and stuck them on the wrapping
paper.....figured I can always change it
later if I find my lil pins.
So was happy with the way it turned out,
it solved my problem and has a unique
look to it, and now I can
but before I did I figured I should do
a little something in this corner to make
it go together as well......
So that's my story and I am
sticking to it...........lol
Hope you are having a good week
Thanks for dropping by.
Love, Hugs and
End of January Blessings,
