Okay, so as you may know I have a slight addiction to Pinterest. I'm doing very well at controlling it though! I don't go on every day, but when I do go on I do get shall we say distracted easily. There is just so much to see!
Anyways, one of the first things I found on Pinterest was this picture. It was before I had been invited in so I just pulled the picture onto my desktop. I thought I had found it and pinned it but apparently that was my imagination or I'm blind. So sadly I can't tell you where the photo is from but I will still look.
I love the colors, the somewhat vintage look, and I'm really love the scrabble letter look. It's different and fun. It also made me think of a dear friend who loves the word love. Then while I was racking my brain for Christmas gifts for her and her hubby I decided this would work wonderfully, with a few changes.
Black is the go to color for my dear friend so I knew I couldn't just order a print. After a couple trips to Michael's scrapbook paper section I found a paper similar. Then I had to buy Scrabble from Target so I could have the letters. Then I played around with the letter arrangement and snapped a few pictures. I wanted the picture to be more interesting so I had it turned into a canvas by Canvas People.
The first photo I tried on canvas, for the size of canvas I chose the letters were too spaced.
The photo I ended up choosing. I haven't seen it on the canvas since I had it shipped straight to my friend. But I will add a picture if possible.
So I took something I liked and let inspire me for something else. Do you have something you could do that with? Have you done something like that similar? Work your creativity!
