As you know I have been asked to participate in this wonderful little project with Kathy and five other fabulous designers.. AND the Flip Pal Mobile Scanner! Last week I posted my first project on this post here. This week, I was inspired again by my Monday Moodboard: Garden Poppy (seen on this post here). The colors scream spring.. even though I am dreaming of big giant snowflakes to keep covering those snowboarding hills for at least a few more months (hehe). But there is nothing wrong with be inspired by color in the midst of winter right?
So this week I thought it would be fun to scan in some of my favorite colorful prints from shirts and scarves I have around my house. I am a scarf freak.. so that wasn't a problem :).
Then just like last week, I scanned them each in with my handy dandy Flip Pal Mobile Scanner! Take the lid off, lay it down on whatever I need to and walla!
Then I printed out the scans onto white paper
and I created two bright and fun projects!
The first one are simple paper pillow hearts.. each with a word of kindness on it. These little cuties are perfect for on top of a gift or just fun to display in a bowl on a table. A fun conversation piece. I started by creating a heart shape out of card-stock. Then I used it as a pattern and traced it onto my printed designs (I printed 2 of each color). Then with two pieces together I used my sewing machine to stitch around the outside edge, leaving an opening so I could stuff batting inside. Once filled, I sewed it shut and then Mod Podged printed words onto the outside of each heart. I used pinking sheers around the edges of each heart, to give them a decorative look and ta-da! A sweet little basket full of yummy colorful hearts!
The second project I created was an art canvas. I wanted to create a canvas that felt like spring.. that reminded me of loving the everyday because let me tell you.. this week as been crazy and I needed that simple reminder. Love the Everyday.
For this project I used the scans to create the dresses that are hanging from the line, as well as the bird in the sky, the sun and even the grass and flowers on the ground. I seriously love using paper to "Paint" with.. and using a scanner to scan in your favorite prints from clothing or pillows or home decor is such a fun way to make it unique to you! How fun to make this for your little girls room, using scans of her own dressed, dolls or favorite blankie? She would love it!
