I am back again today to share some more changes that I am making to my craft room.
For this post I want to share with you some decorations that I have made for my craft room.
Since I am changing the colors to aqua, red, and white I went through my scrapbook paper stash and found some paper that coordinated.
The first thing I wanted to do was cover this wooden letter "S" in some paper.
I used the Handmade collection by Lily Bee Designs and the sheet of paper is called Rag Quilt.
I painted the S with some white acrylic paint and then traced it out of the paper. I used Mod Podge to adhere the paper.
The next project I completed was using this Maya Road Tin that holds chipboard pieces. I have several of these sitting in a shelf and decided to use one as a decorative piece.
Since the tin has a clear plastic front, I adhered some more Lily Bee paper to it from the Handmade collection using the sheet called Running Stitch. I just placed it inside the tin behind the cover and used glue pop dots to hold it in place. Before adding the paper to the inside, I cut out the phrase "Love this life" from my Silhouette Cameo die cutting machine. I used some more Lily Bee paper to make the cut and then painted it a brighter aqua blue with some Acrylic paint from my stash. I also painted a wooden camera piece from Studio Calico and added it to the paper as well.
To pull this all together, I hung a white shelf from Ikea right above my desk.
I added the letter S and tin and then added a red framed family picture and stacked some of my washi tape and that completed this shelf. The red frame is from World Market.
For my next project, I painted a mason jar with the Regal Red spray paint that I showed in my post yesterday. I made some paper rosettes from the Lily Bee Handmade collection and glued them to a dowel rod that I painted white and placed them inside the jar. This sits on a bigger shelf that is on the wall with my desk.
I added my sewing thread to a candy dish from WalMart and found this wonderful vintage Kodak camera at a local antique store.
I cut up a mix of Lily Bee, My Minds Eye and Fancy Pants papers from my stash. I just cut the paper to fit each opening. I then made some die cuts using my Silhouette Cameo and some Ali Edwards brushes. I love her digital elements from Designer Digital. They work perfectly in the Cameo.
I added a few embellishments/stamps and my pictures and this project was complete. I have it hanging over my desk and love looking at it everyday!!
Here are some close-up pictures.
The sticker below is from the Fancy Pants Good Life collection.
