I am FINALLY done with my inspired art!! I mentioned a few weeks ago that I have been dying to do my own version of this design that I saw on The Pleated Poppy. After I finished my neutral wreath last weekend I finally sat down to paint.
I used two pieces of wood just like my thread holder and pushed them together. I used metal brackets on the back to hold the two pieces together. You could just as easily buy a sheet of plywood and have it cut to size (this would probably be cheaper) but I just used what I had lying around!Eventually this will be hanging above our bed in the bedroom.
My project differs from the original in that I painted on wood instead of canvas. I'm just a sucker for warm wood tones and bright pops of color!
This beast took FOREVER to complete - partly due to my ADHD and my general slowness. Totally worth the end product though!

And now, feast your eyes on some eye candy, cause there's a TON!
