Wall Art 2

Hello there my friends.

Remember the project of the wall art for my office? No? Well CLICK HERE to remember before continue reading because this is a continuation... Then come back...

Ready?

Well... so this is one of the other projects for my office. It's a simple message I really like and try to apply to my life everyday: Attitude is Everything. And I really think it is! Or at least, it is a crucial part of everything. Same situations can happen to different people, and the attitude towards them is key to the results... key to how the processes evolve... key to what others think of you, or learn from you... or how you impact them, or how you will feel afterwards...

So I used a patterned paper from a Basic Grey collection as background, and cut the message with Cricut machine (several cartridges).


I am sorry for this bad photo with the reflection in the glass but you've got the idea of how it looks in the frame.


Here's a picture of the three frames ready to take to my office...



I made a fourth one!... Still have not framed it because I broke the glass :( But I wanted to share with you this abstract one...

This is my hand... I painted the palm of my hand with pink acrylic paint (what a mess!), and placed it in the chosen cardstock (which is from the Pearl collection of American Crafts)...


I also made my husband do the same... with blue paint. As you can see he was a little bit less "aggressive" with the paint and the mess... but you can get is another hand... And this is really what I wanted: abstract images to communicate my message...



Then I made my dog do the same... This time I used an ink pad from Memento... and don't worry, he is so obedient and calm that it was very easy to stamp his paw and rapidly clean it... so he could be part of this artwork... actually the most important part for my message... you'll see... keep reading.



I used some embellishments and elements with same colors and theme of "my message"... bone (dogs), fulfillment or success (star), happiness (bright colors, flourishes), love (heart), etc...

I painted a heart with white acrylic paint... and hand wrote my message. It says: "Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole".


I stamped several abstract images, and sprayed mist for the final touches of my composition. Stressed the edges and painted... also placed in top of a sack cloth to make it more rustic and imperfect.

Here's the full view!

Here's another picture without flash so you can appreciate details with different illumination.

I will buy a new frame and am ready to decorate my office with these frames... I am sure this personal touch will make me feel even better at work.

I hope you liked them... Please let me know by leaving a message to this post. :)
