Hi there friends, Suse back with you today to share a fun little make with a pretty ‘fresh start’ vibe. I love this time of the year: you wonder if winter will ever end, then boom - the daffodils are opening and everything’s feeling more positive and hopeful. For this wall art ‘make', I wanted to create something that served as a reminder that every new day is a 'beginning of spring', if you will.
I found my big wooden frame in a thrift store. I love wandering around thrift stores as you never know what you might find and be able to rescue. I liked this frame as it was solid wood, so I knew it would sand back and re-paint well.
I love the fresh pretty look of the Felicity Jane papers when they’re all combined in one piece… don’t they just work so well together? The papers I used for this project are a mixture of Henley and Alexis patterns.
My little bunny was cut out by hand and then stitched with embroidery thread - which can be quite relaxing if you pop something fun on to watch while you do it. I love making bows with the kit papers, as you get sweet glimpses of the reverse side too. Just to mention that everything for this wall art was cut by hand - so no fancy equipment needed at all!
I suspect that these Henley Alphas would make *any* project look incredible, don’t you? And I love how genuinely sticky they are - these adhered to my glass with no problem at all.
I used spray glue to stick my two background elements to the page, then used foam pads to stick everything else to the glass. I love the dimensionality of the end result is and really like that gentle shadow you get.
There are some items in our kits that you just know you will *need* to go back and order more, and these puffy Alexis words are my very favourites! Being a sucker for that hit of graphic black and white on my pages, I just love them so much.
I had originally intended this piece to go in my daughter’s bedroom, but it turned out looking rather younger than I’d planned! But I’m secretly quite pleased: it’s gone up on my bedroom wall instead (and yes, my husband is a very chilled out sort of a guy, ha ha!) Sending love to you all and see you again very soon.
