I enjoy decorating our house, especially doing so creatively on a budget. Thanks to an artistic mother-in-law who brims with ideas, I created a few of my own wall art pieces, leading me to today's How To post.
Using an assortment of scrapbook paper and a glue stick, I created complimentary day and night neighborhood scenes. First I prepared the background by laying out scrapbook paper for the ground and the sky, and then like Bob Ross, I planted happy little trees and houses along the hillsides.
Unlike Bob Ross, however, I didn't talk in a soothing voice about burnt ochre, vandyke brown, or tapping fan brushes during the process.
Once the scenes were laid out, I secured them in oversized matching frames.
They're cheerful for a kid's room, don't you think?
Considering that I had the supplies out, I decided to create a decoration for our bathroom, too. I selected a few sheets of scrapbook paper that complimented our shower curtain, cut circles using a cool circle-cutter, adhered the circles to paper, and popped the paper into a three-slotted frame.
In roughly twenty minutes, I had this:
Simple, cost-effective, readily changeable for those afraid of decorative commitment, and easy to match any color schemes, given the variety of paper you can find. Enjoy!
