I'm so in love with these and they were just so super. First thing you are going to need is boxes of four 8 x 8″ wooden wall. I got mine at Porter’s for $4.99. You can go bigger, if you want to, but I thought this would be printing the easiest sizes to the images. you also need to find four pictures of flowers you like. I Googled me, so I don’t have the link for you. You can find do the same and pictures that you like.I used PicMonkey to change the color of laughter to a slight sepia tone, then added text to each image (live, love, forever) and put it in the bottom right of each image.After this setting, I printed on cardstock before cutting the paper down to 8 x 8″ squares. My printer is a HP (Toner), so, while it’s a ink-jet printer, the ink doesn’bleed t. If a normal inkjet printer, I highly recommend getting them printed in a laserjet, so that the ink doesn’bleed t. The next thing I did to my sun flower wall was art, paint the edges of the boxes uses a dark brown color, and then, Mod hodgepodge gloss and attach the pictures to the tops of the boxes. After I attached all the images, I took three of my fave distress inks and used to RUB the cloth, a little color around the edges of each field, to ensure that each paint booth. This next step is what love is to me these boxes. I wanted to give you an aged appearance, so I took some white tissue paper and crumpled it into a ball.Then I uncrumpled it and put a thin layer of Mod-smorgasbord at the pictures and put the tissue paper over the box. Then smooth the tissue paper over the top. It should look wrinkled and old. After it is all pressed down, put another layer of Mod smorgasbord of over the top of the tissue paper. Make sure that you use a lot of Mod smorgasbord to help the tissue paper to get a kind of see-through-look. As soon as the Mod-dries hodgepodge, pull the excess tissue paper and use a sharp knife around the edges to ensure that all the excess off. The last step is to apply another layer of Mod smorgasbord of over the top and all sides, that the surface has a nice Shine to it. Let them dry overnight and voila!
This sun flower-wall-art went straight to the wall in my room, but don’t, you have a cute little shelf or empty wall space in your house, this would be perfect for? I thought so . . .What do you think of my sun flower wall decor? To listen to I’d love in the comments! PS – I recently redid the trough in my living room with the same technique. I think it looks pretty cool. So, if you try this project, don’t forget it also has other applications, as well. Thanks for reading!
