art is good!


i made these fun canvases for our bedroom the other day... i can't take credit... the idea is from SIStv... but i love how they turned out.... just 10x10 canveses, painted the edges black, glued patterned paper to the front and then brushed a touch of black paint on the paper for a distressed look. voila!
the paper is so yummy... it is Amy Butler by K and Co.
As soon as i bought it i knew i had to display this paper in my house some way.
hope you like!

Perfect Nikki. Love it. I also saw this idea at CHA winter in the KI booth. I remember mentioning to Diane how totally cool it was. Glad to see you actually did it. The other cool part is,....in 3 years you can change the paper if you so decide too.
