Yes, that's my camera lens from my new camera (birthday present from February!). I was so angry at myself!! Luckily I had an old lens from the old film SLR that fits but still... how frustrating is this!
Back to Crafty Friday... I have been on a mission to decorate Hudson & Hallie's room since they moved to big girl/boy beds in February. We've rearranged the furniture a few times since then and finally have settled on a final arrangement. But the walls have been screaming at me for love. I finally had the time and motivation to get working on it.
First, I bought a 30x24 canvas at Hobby Lobby and had a paint color matched to one of the colors in their bedspreads.
Because I am impatient.... waiting for paint to dry to get started on the actual decorating!
My original idea for stenciling didn't work out because I ran out of space so I had repaint the top and planned to start over. You could faintly see the old letters underneath so I had to come up with a Plan B on the fly... here's what I came up with.
After painting the stripes they felt incomplete so I decided I'd put circles on either side of the canvas since their bedding is covered in circles.
I got all technical and used this cup as my circle guide.
Then I decoupaged this verse on top. I had made this verse (and one for Hallie) on the computer and had them printed. I planned to hang it in a frame with a mat, but didn't ... so luckily my Plan B needed it.
It's home above Hudson's bed. Hallie's will look the same - just with a different verse. Once Hobby Lobby puts their canvases on sale again I'll start hers!
