Look what daughter did! I think it’s sooooo cool. Older daughter is getting ready to move into her first apartment for her senior year at college. (She was supposed to move in on Sunday…. But due to the impending Hurricane, the semester will start 2 days late.) Anyway, she wanted some cool stuff to decorate her apartment with, and of course being a college student she needs to decorate on a very limited budget. She “commissioned” younger daughter to make her something for the wall. Her only condition- that it had to go into an old beat up frame that older daughter had “requisitioned” from my mother’s garage. This was younger daughter’s inspiration:
Choose a silhouette design that you like (there are tons on the internet). Enlarge it to the size that you need, and trace onto a dark fabric (such as brown, black, or gray.) Cut out. Glue to background. (Of course, you could do this step before you attach the background piece to the foam core board, and you could use fusible webbing or applique it. But since this is a wall hanging, a few small drops of Tacky Glue will work just fine.)
Voila! Totally cool and inexpensive art!
Here on the East Coast, we are hunkering down for Hurricane Irene, which is supposed to hit late Saturday night/early Sunday morning. We are just hoping that the electric does not go out for days and days (as has been known to happen here where we live.) Since we have an electric water pump and lose water whenever the electric goes out, I have been collecting water in every available container I can find for drinking, cooking (luckily we have a gas stove) and flushing the toilet. Hmmm, it's kind of like camping (have I ever mentioned that I hate camping??)
Stay safe and dry, everyone, and have a good weekend.
