Create a Lovely Desk Art Gallery in Seconds for Pennies

Today I'll show you how to Create a Lovely Desk Art Gallery in Seconds for Pennies! After Tuesday's adventure with a wall hanging, I noticed a frame in the book case with nothing in it--then I though--hey, let's see what we can do...and even more quickly than the wall hanging I had a gorgeous framed Desk Art to really brighten up a winter day with the promis of spring.

Yes, I used the same sheet of Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper but just the upper left corner this time...

Desk art

I simply cut a 5 X 7 piece from the 12 X 12 Fine Floral Art designer paper, inserted it in the frame (I did remove the glass) and added a bright shiny brass butterfly using the Floating & Fluttering die set (Fluttering Dies) with the ultra shiny brass foil paper. I pulled up the wings slightly and adhered the butterfly with a glue dot. And, it's kind of like magic but I didn't need my wand this time.

Need to brighten up a shelf in your stamp room or need a quick pick-me-up gift for a friend? You can complete this project in less than 10 minutes and that's if you have to grab coffee first!

Elegant Wall Art Gallery in Seconds

Today I'm going to show you how to create Elegant Wall Art Gallery in Seconds.....for just pennies...check this out....

Wall sunlight

No, I am not an artist! I cannot even draw stick figures well--even my handwriting is atrocious (right, Diane?)! But this wall art is simply exquisite and I created it in just seconds...the base art is a sheet of Designer Series Paper from that elegant set Fine Art Florals. There are multitudes of beautiful designs in that set for creating cards and memory albums...but this one leaped from the set and screamed---I'm Wall Art! And so, it is.

I added a couple of accent pieces...see the butterflies in brass foil paper....

Butterflies sun

I also stamped and added two flowers using the 2-step stamps from the Art Gallery stamp set (Blushing Bride and Poppy Parade ink) and adhered them to the flower field with dimensionals--this adds a bit of interest and depth to the entire layout...

 


Flowers sun

Of course, you can change the complete look of the art by changing the frame color--but I chose white to enhance the bright fresh look of the art...by changing the frame to black and changing the butterflies to black the entire feel is different.

So grab a sheet of this exquisite designer paper and a frame--see what your Art Gallery looks like!
