Surgery on my foot with limited mobility means I have to get creative to be creative. My craft supplies are upstairs, and climbing them is a bit tricky, so I'm limited to what I can carry on my one trip per day! Of course The Captain is willing to get things for me, but don't want or need to haul too much downstairs.
I saw this video from one of my Facebook groups - Mixed Media Morsels by Cat Hand called Urban Flair. It's a perfect couch project - cutting up magazine pages, then gluing them down.
I decided to use the magazines I had in front of me - Flow and Stampington- not too shabby! I looked for pages with pink, green, and a bit of blue, so my take is less urban, more shabby chic. Here are my pages:
And here they are, cut into strips. I cut them 1/2 wide, but it would also work wider, narrower and even varied widths.
Once all the strips were glued down, I added a few images cut out of my magazines.
Then I swiped on some acrylic paints - using these Dina Wakley paints and an old store card.
Here is the finished page, but I thought it needed something else - splatters and a squiggly border, of course !
