For the background, I went to my stash of card stock and grabbed gray and white sheets. I measured and cut out one inch strips of the white paper and then glued them onto the gray sheet. Instant stripes! If only painting stripes was that easy! (See where I've painted stripes here and here)
Of course, the next step is to use the glue stick to secure the R onto the newly striped background and pop the whole thing into a frame. You may think I had to spend money on the frame, but you must not know about my frame cemetery :)
I love the final outcome, and while I fully intend for this to go in the baby's nursery I can see something like this hanging in a photo gallery wall. Good thing our last initial isn't R so I'm not tempted to keep it!
I'm also thinking that this could be nice in my classroom - my brain keeps going to decorating my classroom. I better get in there next week and get to work!
So, did you think I could pull off another free piece of art? What have you created with initials before? Any other frame or scrapbook paper hoarders out there? I can't be the only one!
Thanks for reading,
