Canvas Collage Project
crazy-ness! (yes… that WAS a while back, but my life is a bit crazy lately)
Okay… so you know how you see a picture, and it TOTALLY inspires you.
I’m talking… consumes your mind, can’t
Well… that’s how I felt about this picture here from Pottery Barn.
Yes… I know… you’re already feeling inspired… right??? 🙂
I think it’s the combination of the black and white photo’s with the blue paneling.
Sooooo, me! I love it.
Anyway, once I finally got all my canvases printed, after a little drama… I knew I wanted to replicate this idea for my own home, somehow!
This is what I came up with.
Color Incorporated Pro Lab Canvases
Honestly… there is NO ONE else I would trust my photos… turned AMAZING canvases, to!
They are SPEEDY, easy to work with and SO friendly.
Okay, so here is how I accomplished this custom piece of art!
First, I found this great over sized framed at DI (Deseret Industries Thrift store).
It was $10.00… which was a little pricey… but it was EXACTLY what I wanted… so I didn’t DARE pass it up!
I used the larger style beadboard for this project, mostly because it’s what I had left over.
I gave the broken glass to Ronda, my neighbor who used it to do THIS picture project!
Everyone asks what color this is… and I hate to say… I mixed Dockside Blue, from Sherwin Williams, with a bunch of regular ol’ semi-gloss white… so I don’t have an EXACT color… BUT I did a little color matching and it is almost IDENTICAL to the color… “Upward” from Sherwin Williams!
So I just left it alone… but DID distress the frame, itself.
I just took some sandpaper and rubbed it along the edges!
Since the frame was already dark brown to begin with… No inking or glazing necessary! woohoo! 🙂
(Because I wanted my canvases to lay totally flat on my board)
If you’re hanging your canvases right on the wall, Color Inc. has you covered! Each print is equip with hanging wire, AND these rubbery dots in each corner, so the canvas doesn’t scratch up your wall!
Hmmm… does that make me cheap or thrifty??? lol.
I really, honestly have a problem… I think I have about 5 more packs of these amazing strips in the garage. LOL
They work for EVERYTHING!
I also printed a family established vinyl decal, in two colors, and rubbed it on in that top left corner…
you can buy one HERE from me.
A HUGE piece of personalized artwork, for my living room shelf!
It’s a great size! Big enough to fill quite a bit of space on this huge shelf! Just what I was looking for.
