The warmer weather is finally arriving! This past weekend was really gorgeous, we just had to stay outdoors and enjoy all the beauty of Spring time.
Well, I also managed to work on this project, changing the wall art in the family room.
For Christmas time I wrapped some canvasses with fabric and placed the Ho Ho Ho felt words on top and that was it!
For Valentine's Day the letters were changed for Xo Xo Xo, hah easy change! But after Valentine's Day this is how they have been.
It was on my to do list, but nothing came up until I saw these pretty designs! Yeah, those are Kleenex tissues. I love those designs and the colors. That was my inspiration.
I took a picture of each package, worked the designs with my new printer and ...
I got the four designs on the tissues plus one extra. You can download the designs I used, they are not of great quality but the 8x10 size works pretty good. Hoping they are not trade mark designs ;)

Then the prints were attached to the canvasses with Mod Podge, but not before painting the old designs, attaching painters tape all around the canvasses to create a "white frame", and cutting the paper to size.
Since the canvasses are not a hard surface, many creases appeared while applying the Mod Podge.
Not that noticeable when it dries though. The tape was taken off and onto the wall they went.
The dark green design was a piece of fabric I already had, a last minute decision to include that one in the gallery to better fill the space.
The new gallery ties in nicely with the art above the fireplace.
And I love how those bright colors give the room a happier atmosphere!
More Spring projects coming!
