I recently moved into a new apartment, and have a few blank walls that still need to be filled. On the one behind the couch, I had the idea to use these large 8″ letter stencils I had gotten a couple of years ago, and spell out ‘CUDDLE SEASON’ – which was a phrase my boyfriend, John, used a while back to ease me out of my beloved summer season. Who knew months later I’d pull it out of a text message and turn into art on my wall? Creativity is funny like that.
These two new me & my BIG ideas Christmas paper pads from Michael’s are chock full of the cutest holiday repeat patterns — a couple of black & white ones, red foil galore, those golf foil hand drawn stars (!!!) … and they all work so well next to one another.
Steps used to create this project:
Above is shot of my boyfriend John and I form this past Sunday. We’re cuddling under the covers with bowls of ice cream & the mid-season finale of The Walking Dead – putting the sentiment of my project into real life practice. I love when a craft is created at just the right time and in the right place to bring to life happy moments like this.
