LESSology Challenge 34 ~ Laundry Day

Today's project is for





the wall decal I bought was meant to be a tree with birds


but then the real thing inside the box was so small that I can't possibly use as TREE, so I decided to make them into tree branches instead


and now I am left with all these black birds.....


I am going to make good use of them for my next project - a piece of wall art for the laundry room.
My canvas is 12" x 24"


and then lots of scraps.... includes these lovelies from catalogs......


Lots of Gesso, paint, mist on the canvas, of course moulding paste too, next is to dig out all those left-overs alphabets, as you can see, it is not always easy (see! I am missing letter R)


well, since I am going to cover them with fabric scraps, it really doesn't matter, any thick chipboard piece could easily do the job




now the wall art is ready, I better go dig out the real paint and paint the laundry room


You'll get a chance to win this Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiment 12x12 paper collection.



So come play along with us

You're right that it's to small for a tree, but it makes a beautiful branch. I love those bird cages you hung off it. I love you laundry room sign. What a pretty little decoration for a room that isn't typically pretty in most houses.
