Today I have a project I made using the Spring Cottage cartridge. I actually got the idea for the project from a wall hanging I saw at Wal-Mart the other day. Yes, I got inspiration from Wal-Mart! Inspiration is everywhere, ladies! Anyway, I snatched this panel up because I just loved the soft blue and the flowers. This is so my style. Anyway, I was looking at the Spring Cottage cartridge and noticed a bird on a branch. I thought I could mimic the panel somewhat. Well, at least I thought I was worth a try!
|Here is the original panel.|
|So I bought a plain canvas at michael's and painted it completely with a soft aqua color. Then I pulled out a nice soft cream color and drug it softly across the canvas just to add a little texture.|
|I then cut the bird and branch out at 6" and adhered it to the canvas. Lastly, I added a few adhesive backed pearls. I just love how it turned out.|
