Make today count - wall art!
Hi there Foxy Friends!
There's been a lot of talk recently amongst the BF Design Team about our craft rooms/ spaces and dare I say a fair bit of craft room envy!! Some of us, and I don't include myself, are very tidy crafters! Well organised craft spaces, clean work surfaces, a place for everything and everything in its place is something I can only aspire to!!
Basically I felt shamed into having a major clear up and sort out! Surprise, surprise I found lots of things I didn't know I had!
A trip to Ikea, a day spent putting together Kallax inserts and I too am now more organised than I've ever been and it's time to start prettying things up a bit!
Todays project is a piece of wall art using the 'make today COUNT' perspextive from the March Fox Box. I intend creating gallery wall and as I love inspirational quotes this will feature.
I had a square box frame from a well known Hobby store but wasn't keen on the black frame so I painted it using a bright white chalk paint. During my clear up I came across a pretty sheet of floral Echo Park 12 x12 paper with the odd strawberry and berry so I spent a few hours fussy cutting every little element!
I wanted to keep the piece simple and let the perspextive shine so I painted a flash of colour in the centre of my white cardstock using gouache paint mixed to a shade not dissimilar to the background of the paper with an added hint of Shimmerz Texturez in 'Gold Mine', this really made the perspextive pop! I then arranged all the floral elements around the border raising some on foam pads. I added a tiny BF heart and a few enamel dots.
For now I've propped up the frame on top of one of my units (for the purpose of photographs I removed the glass) but hopefully it won't be too long before I create my gallery wall!
There are a few phrases in the store right now that would lend themselves to this sort of piece, why not take a look https://www.bramblefox.co.uk/perspextives
You could also look in your stash and see if you could incorporate any words within an inspirational quote adding thickers or hand cut words as necessary.
I hope I've inspired you and if you decide to make a piece of wall art do share it in the BF Facebook Group we'd love to see!
Until next month, Happy Scrapping!
