On the wall with Nicole

 One of the fun things about moving is having blank walls to fill with pictures and things that make your new place your own.  I've been going crazy doing home decor projects the last several weeks.  Among them have been a few canvases to hang above my bed in the master bedroom.  After searching through Pinterest I came across a quote from Audrey Hepburn and decide I would use it on this large canvas.

I started with this 12x12 stretched canvas.

I painted it with two coats of black acrylic paint.

I then went into the Silhouette program and pulled in Samantha's leafy spring wreath and enlarged it to a fit the 12x12 mat.  I typed in the quote using Samantha's Perfect Susan font and welded the letters together.  I also added in who the quote was by in a smaller font at the bottom.

I then loaded my gold vinyl into the machine and cut.  Here is the finished result.  I love that it was simple but made for a striking impact against the black background.    

Remember home decor doesn't need to be complicated or time consuming.  Here is my wall so far.  I'll probably keep adding a few more things here and there as I find them or make them.    

Thanks for stopping by the blog today.  Happy Crafting!

From time to time I make recommendations of products that I love to use, or products that I have designed. Occasionally, manufacturers send me products to play with.

Everyone's personal experience with various products may be different, as we all use things in different ways. I am not compensated for these remarks, and merely pass on my opinion to you as a reader. I hope you find my opinions valuable.
