This week I’ve just been sorting out my exact plans for the room. I’m getting ready to paint the wall in preparation for the board and batten. I’m trying to decide on whether I should do a mid-wall Board and Batten or higher up on the wall?! Which one do you like better?
Comment below and tell me which one you like best! 🙂
I’ve probably focused mainly on the gallery wall this past week. I purchased a gold Better Homes and Garden 7 Piece Frame Set from Walmart. I got it on sale for $15 when it’s normally $39.99!
I’m now figuring out what photos and art I want to put inside of the frames and how to arrange them! Although, this will also depend on how high I make the board and batten.
I have been obsessed with octopus art for quite some time. I’ve always loved the Lord Bodner Triptych. It has and always will be completely out of my price range.
I made a canvas octopus wall art a few years ago. It’s still one of my favorites but I wanted to make a more updated one.
I created my own image for my Cricut Maker through Design Space. I started out by inserting an octopus from the images toolbar. Then, I inserted henna-style clipart into my canvas on Design Space.
After you have inserted your images you then want to click and highlight both of the images. Click the slice button on the lower right of your screen. Then drag the sliced images apart and you will have the henna design cut out of the octopus image.
Size the image to the size of your canvas/preference and set it to cut. I wanted mine to fill up a good majority of the 16×20 canvas so I sliced the image in half.
This will allow it to cut on two separate mats. Otherwise, you are limited to 12×24. I wanted mine taller than 12 inches.
I weeded the octopus image and added some Transfer Tape and applied it to my canvas! What a fun end result! Now I’m looking forward to getting the rest of my gallery wall put together!
