Decorating a wall for all seasons — Spring Specimen Wall Art!

31 Mar

 Do you have an area or spot in your home that you like to change out seasonally? 
I don’t an entry way buffet or table to display seasonal items, so I created a little place in my kitchen that I love to change out during the year.
At Halloween I created these Halloween Specimen Art frames…
During the winter I made some Felt Snowflake frames…
And now that Spring is upon us, I thought it would be fun to create something new for that space. The other day I was tooling around Tai Pan {a really cool home decorating store in Utah/California} and I came upon this $10 frame.
 {Check out what she my friend My friend Ellie G. from Less Cake {More Frosting} did with the same exact frame — 
It’s long and skinny and I thought it was the perfect shape for my kitchen wall.  
And then the another night was at Ikea and I found these super cute, inexpensive frames that I fell in love with.
I combined the two and something exciting happened!! 


The first thing I did was I painted the silver frame white with some glossy craft paint. Now don’t laugh at me, but I didn’t even know that glossy craft paint existed until about a month ago. Can you believe that? I love it!
Once I painted my frame, I went to work on the gallery frames. I found three coordinating scrapbook papers and cut them out to fit inside of the frames. Then I decided to do three different things in the three frames.
The first frame I used a Canvas Corp. tiny burlap-wrapped canvas. I met PSA essentials at CHA this year and they were sweet enough to send me the awesomest customized stamp pad. I love it! More information to come on that {as well as a giveaway} but suffice to say that I love it.
I used their alphabet letters and made a “h” to represent our last name.
I used a circle stencil to cut around the stamp and then I sealed it with Mod Podge and used Plaid’s Dimensional Magic to create a 3-D look. After that dried, I hot glued a giant bottle cap from  Bottle Cap Inc. to the canvas with the “H” on top to the first gallery frame.
I wrapped the burlap frame with some pretty Maya Road ribbon that they sent me. I love the lace look of it. And I also attached a pretty ribbon flower, also from Maya Road, at the top of the frame.
The second gallery frame I added scrapbook paper to and then some Washi tape.

Do you know about Washi tape?? It is the coolest stuff!!! I am working on some projects for a Studio 5 segment and I am loving it!! So cool! You can buy Washi tape on etsy — like here.

I added the Washi tape to this second frame. And then a birds nest to the center.
The third gallery frame I added the third scrapbook paper to and also some Washi Tape.And the I put the glass on top of it and then I wrapped some twine around the glass and tied the twine . I did this two times at the top and bottom. Then I put the glass and paper inside of the gallery frame. I used some tiny little black clothespins from the Canvas Corp and attached some B&W family pictures to those. So that third frame is a little photo gallery that can be switched out. I really love it!

And that is my little Spring/Summer Kitchen Wall. 
 I love that it’s interactive and can be altered over the season/years with different pictures and momentos.
And the white and fresh vibe makes me so excited for Spring!
