Sunday Scripture Art: Joshua 24:15

This is an oldy from 2009. One of my first.
I love looking back on my art work
to see how it's evolved.
I love this verse.


I keep meaning to to do another house series.
Soon. Very soon.

Happy Sunday, friends.

DIY Welcome Mat: Happiness on a Mat

Hi friends,
Life has been full over here,
but I thought I'd take a break to show you one of my latest impromptu
projects because I kind of couldn't believe that it worked.
It's my new welcome mat.
The one that leads from the garage into the kitchen.
The we use about a million trillion times a day.


I've been wanting to try this ever since I went looking for a 
cheap AND attractive welcome mat and found 
that they don't exist. At least not where I shop. 
So, I decided to experiment with spray paint and...
it worked! I hafta say, I kinda love these.

***Please bare in mind before attempting this tutorial:***
I'm not one for details or perfection. I don't have the time or patience.
So if you're looking for that, you won't find it here. 
I do have lots of creativity and figuring things out.
That's what I do.

So, first wrangle up all of your worn out welcome mats. 
*I was able to turn this Christmas mat over! Double duty.
These were old worn out.
*Tip: Ross has the cheapest mats I've seen. They are only $6-$7.


I'll take you through each one...

Materials:
A door mat
Different colors of spray paint
Posterboard (to use as a stencil)

DIY Welcome Mat

*If your mat has a design on it, spray it with 2 coats of white or brown spray paint. 
Let the paint dry in between coats. It should cover up the current design. 


Then, spray paint a heart on the mat.
Mine's not really centered. I don't care.
Still makes me happy.


Cut out a heart shape out of posterboard & tape it to the mat.
Spray stripes in different colors


And spray some more.
Spray close to the mat to get a more defined line.
Each line needs at least two coats.



And that's it.
There you have it, friends.


Happiness on a mat .

Sunday Scripture Art and a birthday sale!



Do not be conformed to this world but 
be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
Romans 12:2

I love this verse. 
the renewing of your mind. 
the renewing of your mind. 
Renew your mind, Erin.

And with that, I'm off to church. 

And it happens to be my birthday today,
so why not have a sale in shop? 
For today only. 
*Important: Just put one print in your cart, 
and let me know which print you 
would like in the notes to seller.
