Flower Wall Art

I have been having physical therapy for tendonitis in my shoulder…last week my therapist was talking about a craft party she had been to and she showed me a really cute wall hanging that one of her friends made. I hadn’t seen this project before, but I found this on Pinterest which led me here and I made my own version!

I added lots of shades of blues, some green and a splash of pink all on a brown background. I used scrapbook paper, but I think it would look great too with fabric (great destashing project!).   I tried to Mod Podge the petals onto the canvas but it didn’t stick too well, so I used craft glue.  I did use the Mod Podge to coat it all when I was done...there were spots of craft glue which were obvious.

Anyway, I only have one problem now…where to hang it!

Very pretty; the black background makes the design show up beautifully.

SayNotSweetAnne said...

This is a great way to make coordinating art on a dime. I really love the canvas idea but I think the same flower/paper scraps technique could be easily framed or decoupaged onto wood- oh the possibilities! Imagine decorating a book cover this way with scraps from graduation cards , as a going away to college keepsake? If you're not too busy, I'd love if you would come link up to Sweet Sharing Monday! http://saynotsweetanne.com/2012/sweet-sharing-monday-2/

A gorgeous work of art. Such a wonderful idea. I love all the colors and how they work together. When I saw the thumbnail of this, I did think it was fabric. And, you're right, this would be a great way for me to make good use of my millions of fabric scraps. Thanks for sharing.

Amy said...

ooh, that turned out just gorgeous, Ellen! Love it! I'm going to pin it to try later. Thanks for sharing at Shine on Fridays!

Michele said...

Great job. I would have centered the flower and it wouldn't have come out anywhere near as pretty as yours. So glad I came across your post. Am Pinning as now I finally have some ideas for some plain canvases I had picked up in my travels.

- Brittany aka Pretty Handy Girl said...

Ellen, how beautiful! I like how you made it your own with a unique color palette. I say you need to take one picture down and hang this artwork up in a prominent place! Thanks for sharing in the DIY Talent Parade.

Waseem said...

pleasant to eye...Did you use paper for petals?
