Tuesday Tutorial: Fabric Strip Canvas Art

10 Jan

Welcome to Tuesday Tutorials – where I find awesome easy tutorials for you – now go get crafty 😉

This crafty tutorial comes from: HowJoyful

Fabric Strip Canvas Art
I had some left over fabric from a sewing project that I needed to get rid of, and came up with this:

Supplies:  Fabric- 1/4 yard cuts in different colors, Mod Podge, canvas, frame.
How To:  Cut fabric into 1/2″ x 5″ strips using a rotary cutter.  Arrange on canvas prior to gluing to get the color pattern you want.  Adhere to canvas using mod podge.  Add a coat of mod podge to the top of the fabric.  Let dry, frame and hang :)
Total Cost:  ~$10-$15

Crafts – Rock On!

27 Aug

I spent a majority of today painting & crocheting while I was waiting for the paint to dry! I must say watching paint dry is ridiculously annoying!!! Thank goodness I found something to do in-between 😉 I started working on the giraffe frame and the guitar frame. Unfortunately only one is done due to complications – poor giraffe will have to wait! My little painting hands are tired! But I did finish the guitar! Check it out 😀

I am completely in love with this little guitar – one because it’s hott – two because I’m a guitar hero/rock band fan – three it’s so hard to find awesome things for boys and I think this would be awesome in a little boys room!

I think I’m going to do one in red and one that turquoise just to mix it up and see what it looks like!

This is going to be an expensive addiction!! I haven’t posted this on etsy yet because I’m still doing a little tweaking but I’ll let you know when I do!

And for those of you wondering what I’m crocheting – I’m practicing my own version of a cowl. It’s going to be much thinner than this one:

But I’m working on learning different crocheting techniques so I can master it and then attempt this one! It’s probably not going to look much like this one because I’m using a much smaller needle and skinner yarn but hopefully it turns out awesome! 😀

I should be able to finish this in no time – with the amount of frames & painting I’ll be doing these next couple of days – I’m going to need something to do while the paint dries 😉

Okay – back to crafting!

Thanks everyone for stopping by!

Love Always

Crafts: Picture Frame Coat Hook!

4 Feb

I finally took some time out today to do some painting. I don’t know what it is about it, but it is a serious stress reliever for me! After shopping at JoAnns I came up with a couple brilliant ideas and this was one of them.

These are the supplies I used: Wooden Frame, Paint, Paintbrushes, Scrapbooking paper, Scissors, Hot Glue Gun, Wooden Fence and a wire hook.

Tada!!

I plan on making more 😀

Love Always,

Home Sweet Home

5 Dec

I started off with a board from the craft store that cost me $1.99

Sprayed the front with adhesive and placed it on construction paper

Picked out paper for the letters

The letters I picked out from the craft store $.99 for two letters in each packet = total of about $8.00

Decided to spruce up my plain paper a little

Layer number one

Layer number two .. i know it looks childish now but wait until you see the outcome!

Use the X-acto knife to cut the excess paper

Use adhesive on the letters

Place letters on paper and let them dry

Cut excess paper off letters

And the finished product .. although knowing me I’ll be changing it up somehow 😀

Onto other news! I have been working on E’s crocheted jacket and here’s what I’ve got so far:

I feel like it’s really coming along now!! So excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And I am on to the next book! The last one of my list of books until the 2011 book challenge!

I have a feeling this one is going to be a good read.

Well that’s all for today!

Love Always,
