For my first project, I used one of the U. S. posters to alter the deer from the DIY Wall Zoo collection.
I placed the parts on the map, traced and cut. Not all of the components fit on the the map so I set aside the sides of the head, antlers and the backboard to paint. I applied the map cutouts to each part with Mod Podge.
All the pieces are numbered so before I painting the sides and the antlers, I snapped a photo to reference.
I applied 2 coats of black chalk paint, directions indicate allow 2 hours in between coats, but the paint dried pretty fast and since I won't be writing on the chalkboard surface, I applied the second coat after 15 minutes.
While the paint dried, I removed the flower patterns from the Stateside DIY Project Stack and made 4 small flowers, 1 large flower and assembled with hot glue.
My second project is a set of canvas panels. I painted the edges of 2-12"x12" canvas panels.
I covered the panels with black burlap from the 12"x12" Premium Burlap Stack. I layered pattern paper on top of the burlap, used the California state chipboard and added an enamel geo tag.
And here you have it, my deer in bloom with 2 coordinating altered panels. I am so loving the quote, "The shortest way to anywhere is to have good company". That quote is everything!
This wall is the entry way to the family room & kitchen and it was due for a makeover.
Thank you for visiting.
