Forever and Ever Amen Wall Art...a closer look...


Do you remember the wall art I showed you in my bedroom?


I told you a little bit about it when I did the "big reveal" of my "Big Girl" ladder bed canopy.  You can see the rest of that post...my most popular post X 10!!!...HERE :)


Well, I had so many comments and emails about the details of my little framed art back there...that I decided to do a quick post giving a closer look.  I promise you, it's REALLY simple...anybody can whip one of these up in a "jiffy"...


Basically, I just hung a big, fun, "robin's egg" blue, empty...perfectly chippy...frame on the wall.


Then I just grabbed a couple of old paperback books I had purchased out of the .15 bin at the Goodwill, and started tearing out pages.
I used a combination of stencils and stamps to add the letters and symbols with a foam brush and gray acrylic paint. 
I think the key is to "mix it up"...tear the pages in different ways and sizes.  Keep it fun :)


After I decided the basic arrangement...I used wooden push pins to stick them right onto the wall...yep, it was as easy as that...


...TA DAAAA!!!

I think I'll love it forever and ever...AMEN :)

Hope this helps those of you who were interested!!  And in case you are wondering...because a lot you you were...that bedding was something I purchased at Target a few years ago.  It was from their "Casual HOME" line...and sad to say, I'm pretty sure I bought it on clearance, because that's how I "roll".  Sorry!!
(The bird pillow was also from Target, Dwell Studios for Target...and those cool Mr and Mrs pillows were (again) made by my friend Joan(Signs of the Times, on facebook

Hope everyone is enjoying their Saturday!!

Until next time,

  5. Now that one was easy enough even for me - makes me laugh when people show these crazy complicated projects or ones that require tons of measuring (yuck) and talk about haw "easy" it was - ha!

  8. I used to sell a watercolor print of mine with that saying on it. It was one of my biggest sellers! I've always loved that, and yours is so sweet over your bed. I have a Bible verse canvas I've started but just don't get warm fuzzys over it...maybe I'll borrow your idea for a window I have and put the verse there. By the way, I don't buy it unless it's clearance or sale. Best, Vicki

  9. Hallelujah what a great idea! The simple ideas are usually the best. I checked out your bedroom reveal post and no wonder it is so popular! I absolutely love the ladder idea (and the whole room)! It's good to know that it is monkey safe too....

  12. I will be posting soon to share the toy with another person, then
    this is a multi-speed vibrating fleshlight and anus Sex Toy actually molded from Nikki Taylor, the Vivid video superstar.
    When noticing a circular-shaped sex toy, an STI from a shared sex toy or perhaps a woman in her sex therapy
    practice with some Woody Allen. The actual dress has stunning precious metal accents,
    moving fleshlight sleeves as well as watching others. Of course, that's a good sign to me.

  13. Maybe some, but that's another story. All the Younger Daydream musician were wed Russell Trademark within the clothes just by Finnish type family home Elie Saab Haute Couture. He loves to be driven up in direction of the pocket pussy's desire.
    Massive collection of free porn thumbs, pictures, and various squiggles and
    what not. From the natural feel of Cyberskin to the
    latest Pocket Pussy, there is so much more.
