"Live Laugh Love" upcycled wall art


Hello Crafty Friends!  Kathy Jo here sharing an upcycled wall hanging using Quietfire Designs' Live, Laugh and Love dies.  Upcycling an unused or tired item is fun to do, is a great way to explore your creativity and is a perfect excuse to use your favorite Quietfire Design dies.   

For the project, I took an unused wall hanging that had three faux wood pieces assembled side by side.  After cleaning the item, I applied black Gesso and then several layers of black paint.  
Next, I die cut each die in ivory card stock and then light pink card stock.  The die cuts were adhered- slightly offset- using liquid glue.
Several ivory and pink flowers were adhered as shown.  Stickles (Frosted Lace) was applied to each flower center.
The wall art was a flash to put together and brought new life to an old item.  Admittedly, I am happy with my "new" wall art!  The calligraphy and the words are so beautiful and uplifting.  Seeing it makes me smile.  :)

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed the upcycled project.  Have a happy, crafty day!
Hugs,
