I just repainted my bathroom off my craft room a couple of weeks ago and needed some kind of print or decor above the toilet and couldn't decide whether to make it or thrift shop something?!? I was bored on Wednesday and so I made a quick dash to Michael's and found some Memory boxes on sale for 4.99 instead of the usual 14.99. I grabbed this heart thinking I could make something for my bathroom. This is what I came up with.
I knew I wanted an outhouse so I found one on line and printed it out the appropriate size and but it out for the upper left hand corner. I cut out my new cute bicycle, two gate sections, a flower and added a wood die cut flower stem with leaves and a bird which I added to the roof of the outhouse.
The other top section I added a arch window which I mounted on mounted tape for dimention I found a man and woman which I printed and cut out and the Vintage directional finger often used to point to restrooms and a medium size flower.
Lower bottom I added some stripe dp and added some clothes pins in two different sizes, wood buttons and a cute clother hanger which I just love all of these darling embellishments and rather perfect since my craft room, bathroom is right next to my laundry room :)
My final section is of course my favorite because I love to make flowers by hand, I use my Sizzix Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die and cut each plate out 4 times so that each flower would have lots of fullness. I crumpled each piece into a ball, and after uncrumpling each piece, I punched a hole with my frog stabber, I not to play with the flowers too much because they can be a little fragile after I have beat them up as much as I have but I usually scrunch them up a bit if needed. The two smaller flowers are made using my cuttlebug quill die cut set.
To finish this section I airbrushed a string of faux pearls grey and added translucent seed beads. A couple of dragon flies which I sponged with distressed ink and a butterfly which I also sponged with distress ink. A couple of wooden die cut leaves and my project is done.
Thanks for stopping by to see my project. I am trying to decide if I want to hang it with ribbon or alone. Any suggestions are welcome. Leave them in the comment area :)
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative day.
