My work has occupied a lot of my time lately, but come Friday night I'm ready to break out the brushes and get crafty!
For the past couple of months, I've been searching for a pretty bulletin board for my office, but I couldn't seem to find anything that I really loved, so I decided to make my own.
It was actually super easy! I simply layered some vintage-looking papers on top of a framed cork board using Liquitex Matte Varnish.
The matte finish just has to dry over night, and a few hours later you have your very own personalized bulletin board.
I used the same collage technique a few weeks ago when creating this world map for my living room.
For this project all I had to do was apply thin strips of my favorite scrap book paper around the edges of three canvases...
then I cut the sepia-toned world map I had purchased from Amazon to fit the frames (Note: don't worry if you can't fit the whole world on your canvas--you can always create a legend)...
apply 1-2 layers of varnish for a smooth matte finish (of course a little wrinkle adds character)...
and pin all the places you've been to or want to go!
I've had so much fun creating these collage pieces lately!
What kind of creative projects have you been up to these days?
