I have a black and white wall in my bedroom. It is full of stuff that I have made that represent my husband and myself. I had a space that I needed to fill and I had a frame that fit the space perfectly. I didn't want to use a frame, though. I already have several frames in the area. I had an idea to use my Cricut and print something on a canvas.
|I went to my craft closet to grab a canvas but I didn't have one. I did, however, have this piece of mdf that was once the backing of a frame that I used in a different project. It fit my space perfectly. So exciting! I love using otherwise useless stuff.|
|I found this lovely book while on vacation in Mustang Island, Texas. It was in a souvenir shop on the beach and it was old, old, old. I knew it would be perfect for a project someday and snagged it up for only a quarter! Bonus!!|
|I used my decopage medium and glued the pages down in a random fashion. Then, I used my Cricut and cut out our wedding date and stuck it to my board.|
|Then, I painted over the entire thing. Once it was dry, I peeled the vinyl off and had my lovely piece of art. I lightly sanded the entire thing and sanded a little rougher on the edges to give it more of a distressed look.|
|I love the final result.|
