This past week I didn't really work in my art journal very much because I was too busy with diy projects. The one project that I was able to finish was inspired by this post. I made a small paper garland to hang on my gallery wall.
I used the templates provided by the original post, but I made it uniquely my own by watercoloring each flower (instead of using card stock or construction paper). The only flowers that are not watercolored are the yellow ones and the leaves. I probably spent way too much time on this project and paid way too close attention to details that no one will ever notice now that it's on my wall, but I had fun doing it and I'm glad I finished without giving up! I think I might need to add a couple more leaves and sprigs in there, but so far I'm liking it.
Don't judge my wall, it's not finished yet!!!
This week I am planning on finishing this diy and hanging it above my bed.
Hope you had a great weekend! What are your 4th of July plans? I'm going down to Florida to visit family and enjoy some beach time!
P.S. The lettered art work is from this Etsy shop.
