A few months ago I started gathering supplies to make some art for the wall: canvases, paint, vinyl jungle animals. This week I painted the canvases to ready them for the vinyl animals - the plan was a pop art style grouping with bright colors. I liked the idea, but then a bigger idea popped into my head. What if I dressed the canvas up a bit by adding some fabric? I grabbed my scrap fabric basket and started pulling out coordinating colors and started snipping away. Happy with the result, I used spray adhesive (for the first time ever) to adhere the fabric. I really like how they turned out. I have another canvas and a cute vinyl "alphagator" for another wall in the room, but I messed up when painting it and ran out of the correct paint, so that will have to wait for a few days.
The original idea - vinyl animals on painted canvas.
With the fabric accents (not adhered yet).
On the wall. I used command adhesive velcro strips (one on each side) - the perfect thing for holding up canvas.
Jungle room - complete with jungle cat!
