My latest project is complete and here it is! One of the popular trends at the moment is art using letters, words or phrases. I have seen it all over in stores like HOMESENSE and in many magazines and books. I decided I could make my own and make it personal to me and my life. I bought a canvas from my local art store and a set of stencil letters from Michael's (crafter's heaven!). I knew I could use those more than once perhaps for other projects like monogrammed linens as Christmas gifts. I used paint I had on hand from previous endeavor's ( there have been one or two!!). Altogether it cost me $20, I brushed on two colours for the background very roughly to achieve an aged look. Next I stenciled the words using black and blue. I decided to use the names of the countries I have lived in up until this point reminding me of how far I have come!
My art work is hanging in my newly painted powder room where it will be seen by everyone at some point! LOL! Take a look below at some other examples of text art on walls, pillows and lamps as well as individual letters in metal or wood. Which is your favourite?
