A creative day leads to yet more wall decor ...


... I have been collecting goodies for this project for more than a year now, and it seems like it took forever to get it on the wall. While it is only about 3/4 of the way done, and it will be a work in progress for awhile, at least it is up off of my bedroom floor! I have huge, plain wall in my dining room and when we moved in to our house last summer, I had a moment of inspiration for yet another photo-filled wall hanging. I would have theme be centered around my family eating, cooking or preparing food. To match the blue green and beige tones in my home, I stuck with much of Little Yellow Bicycle's Vita Bella line (Those of you on the SoCal 2 Provo bus tour last year remember how crazily I collected that along the way, don't you?)and mixed in some Teresa Collins, 7Gypsies, Tim Holtz, Glimmer Mist and Ranger paints and inks.





Flea Market finds: Printer's drawer, miniature serving trays, tiny cast iron pans, doll-sized wooden chairs, and blue serving spoons. From JoAnn's clearance aisle: Frames, decorative posted cork board, framed corkboard, large square corkboard and the 12-hole nick-knack shelf. I used Canvas Concepts stretched canvas frames in all different sizes and depths and Kits2Remember stamps on the glassed frame with the three 5x7 photos. Last, but not least, I stretched a table runner my grandmother had made (the cream fabric with blue decorative border) over the large square corkboard to add a bit of heirloom feel. And, since I am such a ribbon junkie, I was sure to throw some of that up there, as well.

Oh my gosh, you're the most creative and talented person! I love how you take a concept and make it a reality - how creative to have all the food pictures on your dining room wall, with serving pieces, etc. Thanks for sharing, and we can't wait to see the next installment!

It looks great! I love the way you incorporate the non scrapping stuff in there and make it all look so cute!

Looking good! It is a fabulous wall hanging as it is, so I am sure it will to nothing short of absolute perfection when you finish it off!
