I love how it turned out! I love the color pallet (the middle square has a beige background that is hard to see in the picture) and the fun textures.
I bought a 12 x 36 inch frame in black, because it was going on a white wall. This was hard for me, because I typically like to decorate with white.
I found some paper that looked like wall paper and I thought it would tell the story I wanted to express with the backgrounds. I cut out a 5 inch frame with my die-cut machine and and 3 inch G for Griffin. I of course used my new favorite burlap ribbon and some household twine for texture. After using twine all over this project I will now use it anytime I can. It added some needed texture and was so easy to work with.
I bought a 6 inch foam wreath and wrapped it with the twine. I also made some cutie fabric flowers to add some color and whimsy. I bought a small metal bird a little bit ago, at the time I had no idea what I was going to do with it. It was waiting around in my craft room for the perfect project, and this was it!
For the first square I glued down the ribbon and the G in the frame. The twine above and below was an after thought and I'm glad I added it.
The second square I wrapped the twine around in two sections crisscrossing them for depth. I originally wanted this section to be a place to hang pictures from the twine like in my inspiration. Now that I am done I like the way it looks with pictures hanging from it and with out them.
The last section was for my mini wreath. I glued my flowers down and added the bird and then secured the wreath to the paper.
I hung it on the wall and instantly fell in love with the way it brightens up the space.
