I shared my new scrap desk here on my blog a while back and if you remember in the photos the wall above it was pretty bare. Well I finally got around to hanging the Ikea shelves I had gotten back in May and now I’m busy finding and making things to decorate those shelves with. :) I thought I’d share this one project with you since it’s super easy and I really like how it turned out.
I got a 12×16 canvas at Joann’s… they’re 40% off this week! Painted it white and then got to work with my Silhouette. Every time I use this machine I’m in awe. I love it! I’ve had some of the black vinyl for a while now, but never used it. It’s amazing. I found 3 different cut files in the Silhouette shop that represented my kiddos well. Oldest are twin boys, then a girl, then our baby boy. Who’s not really a baby at all anymore, but you know how it goes with the youngest! ;) It even had the little boy holding a puppy! How perfect! I resized them to fit the right way on the canvas and then cut. It looked a little bare with just the black on white so I added some Heyday paper on the top and some washi. Stamped a doily with “you are my sunshine” and viola… done! I love that I can easily remove the paper and switch it out if another favorite paper comes along.
Now off to find more things to fill up my shelves with!
