Sick day=Art day.

I recently saw this tutorial on tip junkie, and I had to give it a try as well. I thought it would be a perfect addition to our picture wall. It was super easy.... and really cheap! At West Elm, this piece of art would cost you a pretty penny. All I had to buy was the canvas, which I found on sale for like $3! I have been sick all day, and so instead of infecting middle Tennessee with my germs, I stayed home... ALL day. That is difficult for me, but at least I had time to craft. I did this whole craft on my couch. Well... not really. I spray painted it gray yesterday (outside of course). The rest was done on my couch. The mod podge could have caused some damage, but I was really careful. Here are pics of the process, and the end result.

I added the word "LIVE" to the bottom. Our picture wall captures some our favorite moments we have had while we "live" on this earth. I also feel like it's an encouragement to keep on living the life God has given us to the fullest (John 10:10).

I like what it added to our picture wall. You might have noticed the blank white canvas on the wall. I have a plan for that and I will blog about it when I finish it. Hopefully it won't taking getting sick again to get it done :).
