Delight in Life.


My bathroom needed a little something.

I have had these prestretched canvases in my closet for awhile, just waiting to become something. The other night I decided it would become an inspirational piece for my bathroom.

So very simple.

I used a strip of masking tape to cover up one portion of the white canvas. Above the tape I painted green. Below the tape I painted cream. Two coats. Then I removed the tape.

I used 7gypsies rub ons for the little black details. I handwrote "delight in life." The word stickers come from Making Memories, Die Cuts With A View, and K&Company. The black circle stamp is from Savvy Stamps.

Do something creative today.

Also, there was a question yesterday about my camera. My main camera is a Canon Digital Rebel with a Canon Fixed 50 mm lens (1.8). I love this camera and this lens.

And Melanie asked about how I keep my quotes - working on that one right now - more to come.

    Whatever happened to your Christmas art journals - the one with the circles and the Shimelle class journal? Will we ever get to see these? I personally would love to take a peek!

    Very cool. I was also wondering about the moisture effects.
    Can hardly wait to hear what you do with quotes and all that misc. stuff. I'm currently re-organizing my room.

    Hi Ali I am definitely going to do something creative today now you've given me some inspiration. I was just wondering whether you've started your "simple" christmas album - the red covered one with green pages and 9 cirlces on each page? I'd love to see how its going! thanks

    Love this Ali - Did you use acrylic paints? Also wondering if you sealed it after adhering the sticker words and rub-ons.

    So inspiring Ali. I need something just like that. I've got some un-finished wood frames that are just begging to be decorated. Thanks for the shot of creativity.
