Finally an altered project challenge!. I saw this cool altered project challenge blog called LESSology on Nida's blog (thanks Nida!). Their latest challenge (LESSology Challenge #9), is to create an inspiration board using at least one upcycled item. I love giving an old, unwanted item a new life ... so I decided to give it a try.
I found an old wooden sign, 'My Room' in the storage. Gave it a few coats of white paint and doodled on it. And I also used three pieces of IKEA's wooden picture frames and some wires to hold them together.
just two coats of lovely acrylic colors,
These three BIG words had always been my favorite creating mantras. To see them hang on the wall while working at my desk, I am reminded and ever so inspired to make something beautiful (or useful).
I used running stitches to make the words because I almost ran out of chipboard alphas! LOL. And I just learnt how to crochet the flowers a couple days ago.
Here are some close ups of the needlework...
Okay, I had fun today making these. It's been a long day and nite nite to all.
