Bird Wall Art

19 Feb

One of my Pinterest finds and a very simple and inexpensive way to create some artwork.

Blue Cricket Design -Bird Art

My friend Rhona needed some new artwork for her office that would replace a picture of an old bridge that was pretty ugly. She saw a pin I posted to my Pinterest board that would fit perfectly.

I headed out to Lowes’s to get a piece of wood ($8 for a 2’x4′ piece that I had them cut to the size I needed) then stopped by the used book store and found an old book on the clearance rack ($2). Check out Blue Cricket Design for step-by-step instructions…it took me only about 2 hours to finish (most of it was drying time).

Birth Announcement – Subway Art

9 Sep

I saw a bunch of tutorials on subway-style artwork on some of my favorite craft  blogs lately, so I wanted to try it out.  It just so happened that a few months ago my brother-in-law’s sister  just had a beautiful baby girl, so I decided to create a subway style birth announcement for her. I followed blogger Ashley’s easy step-by-step instructions on Lil Blue Boo, with a few little tweaks, and in a couple of hours I had the finished product!  The most tedious part is cutting out all the letters, but just turn on the football game to keep you company and by half-time you should be ready to paint 🙂
