I do actually frame some of my artwork. We've actually run out flat surfaces to put frames, so I've started hanging things on the wall. Yesterday's edition? Bathroom art.
The idea of this artwork actually came from a piece that is not mine. A lovely positive/negative shape cut out that a student of mine completed this past year and gave to me instead of taking it with her. The color completely matches our guest bathroom shower curtain, so I bought a frame for it and found two more frames that match the curtain. I decided to use my Cameo to cut out a couple designs for the same positve/negative shape look.
The middle piece is my students artwork. Sorry about the reflection in the frame - but that's the shower curtain. Also, I'm not sure why, but the color on the walls looks much better in person than in these photos - it's Behr Grass Cloth.
I chose to use the Cameo store to find other scenic cuts. The Golden Gate Bridge by Hero Arts, and a hot air balloon from Loni Stevens, were exactly what I had in mine. I added a few more cuts using to the balloon using the Cameo software to give it a more scenic look.
I cut them out of black textured cardstock, and decided to mount them on watercolored paper for a slight bit of color.
I traced the edges of the cutout onto my watercolor paper, and then used my Sakura watercolors to add a bit of color.
I used Tombow Mono Multi permanent glue with the pen tip to adhere the cutout onto the dried watercolored paper.
Trimmed off the excess watercolor paper, and popped it in to the frame.
Easy wall art (and cheap!) in less than a few hours.
Thanks for dropping by :)
