House Art

If you have ever been to my home, you know that I live in a high ranch bungalow. When you walk in you can go right downstairs or right up stairs. You also know that we have a tall wall that goes straight up to the ceiling when you walk in. I would say about 15 or so feet high. To break up the boldness and brightness of my wall colour, I have created a metal collage with various items - mostly of the garden variety!

While the fireplace is nothing to sneeze at for most people, for us it is a big deal. We made it from scratch! Everthing you see (except the top mantle piece) was nothing but flat oak. We had the wood carved and routed then spiced up with some decals. I love it! I also made the bowl that is hung above the Angel wings on a Momma-daughter outing to The Mud Oven. It reads "hearts warm when family and friends gather" It was never intended to be wall art but a chip in the bowl made it such.

During March break I will embark on a new home 'art' project and can't wait! Even if it isnt scrapping, I am very happy with these creations.

Love it and know that I will try to take your idea and do something similar to one of my wall at home! It was a long project to do.... but the final result is stunning!
