My Latest Project

I just finished my latest project. The walls in Logan's room seemed bare so I created these new wall hangings. I started with a couple of blank canvases that I found at JoAnn's but you can find them at any craft store. Next I searched for old picture books at thrift stores. After finding the pictures I wanted I mod podged them onto the canvases. Then I printed out the letters of Logan's name on the computer in a font that I like. I cut the letters out, traced them, and then painted them in with black paint.



Here is one up close.

Wow those are beautiful. Excellent idea. I love the pictures of Gatlinburg and your little cowboy, too! You should check out the line of cowboy baby blankets and onesies at Target. They're really cute.
