Personalize A Message Board With Colored Art!

2/24/2017 | Lynn Lilly
Hello, Marylin here today sharing my latest Deflecto project. Do you own an art coloring book? Most adults that I know own at least one and enjoy bringing the art to living color as a way to beat stress and enjoy some solitude. Deflecto Crafts have a frame that is perfect for showcasing your favorite artwork. By adding some black cardstock paper, you can make it into a wet erase board to make lists and leave messages. There are many options to apply to the basic concept that I show here to make it your own!
12″ x 12″ Cardstock: dark pink, handwriting on white, black
Floral Color Art coloring book
colored pencils
laser cut wood shapes: bird, Home Sweet Home
paper trimmer
Remove the frame from the wrapper and make sure that the opening is on the top side of the frame. Cut the pink cardstock to fit the frame.
Cut the printed cardstock slightly larger than the colored art print. Layer and adhere papers. Cut a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ rectangle of black cardstock. Adhere to the center of the art print. Insert into the frame.
Adhere the wood cut-outs to the frame.
Mount the frame using the hook and loop tape that is enclosed in the packaging.
I hope you got some inspiration from the blog today. I had a difficult time picking an art page because there are so many beautiful designs! There are a plethora of wood shapes and paper patterns to choose from. You can make it totally your own!
Make sure to take time to enjoy the small blessings along the way and
Live Life with a Flourish!
