A few months ago I decided that I wanted to do an art project and create something to hang in the large open space over my couch. After many hours of searching on Pinterest I found these two projects that I loved, and decided to combine the two ideas.
I purchased the canvases on sale at Hobby Lobby and then the project began.
First we tea stained all four canvases. This took multiple coats to get it the color I wanted. I also had some help from my little one on this. (please tell me I am not the only one who now has the Wonder Years song stuck in my head.)
Next I used a leaf punch and cut multiple leaves from a variety of different scrapbook papers.
Once they were cut I painted the tree and began adding the leaves with mod podge.
The completed project. It is far from perfect, but I still love it, and am glad it is something Ashley and I did together.
This is now hanging on the wall over my couch. I am working on a few more things for that wall as well, and hope to be sharing some of them with you soon.
What creative things have you been working on lately? Leave me a comment I would love to hear from you!
