Aside from the traveling, art making and napping...I have completed a few DYI projects that I am pretty happy with and wanted to share. Some I was able to complete by myself, some I needed some help from friends, but they are all very do-able and pretty low-cost...and most importantly I LOVE them! It's really starting to feel like home in our new place. A very CREATIVE home!
Covered Bulletin Board
I have had the same cheapo bulletin board for years. Now that I have my own dedicated art space I wanted to dress it up a little. My studio area is mostly white- trying to keep it nice and neat (for now) I am adding some black and white graphic accents here and there, and I thought that a chevron pattern was just what this bulletin board needed for a new look...and on a budget, of course!
Pegboard for Necklaces
Next up...dealing with my necklace collection. In the past I have always just used push pins, however, the collection is growing and I wanted to upgrade my organization. So...I decided on a pegboard!
...me, marveling my talented friend Giselle and her cool machine...some of the decals..'do something CREATIVE everyday', above my studio window...my best friends initials by the shelf and pictures I have hanging up to remember her...msc. fun decals, like this 'love' decal, under some of our pictures
Another thing that I wanted to do in the new place was to add some wall decals here and there. Again, for this I needed help, so I enlisted the aid of my beautiful friend Giselle of GS Makeup Artistry, in exchange for help painting a wall in her studio. She even threw in homemade beef stew...definitely NOT an even trade! Wow!
I seriously LOVE my new wall decals. One of my favorite areas that I used them was my 'art wall' above our tv. Makes me smile every time I sit down and look at 'em!
