Okay, I know most everyone has heard of Michaels and Pinterest but if you haven't heard of Hometalk, then you are in for a treat. Hometalk is the largest home & garden knowledge hub on the web. It's fueled by the firsthand experience & advice of hundreds of thousands of home enthusiasts and professionals.
And on February 16th, I will be the Featured Hometalk Blogger at the Pinterest Party at my local Michaels (McKnight road for you Burgh folks). All Michaels will be having Pinterest Parties on that day but click here to see if there will be a Hometalk Blogger at your local Michaels.
So at the event, we will be creating some Pinteresting artwork!
Let me show you how easy it is to do with just a few supplies from Michaels. You will need:
stretched burlap canvas
wood laser cut embellishments
copper brush-on leafing
I had these supplies on hand at home:
320 grit sandpaper
glue gun and hot glue
Take your wood embellishments and add a dot of copper leafing to the inside and set aside.
Once dry I added my copper leaf details.
You can then brush on some copper highlights on the branches as well to give your tree some depth.
And this is what it looks like up close:
You'll do the same thing when you attach your bird.So here is your finished product.
I did like the monochromatic look of this but felt like it needed some punch so I made a red bird with copper leafing.
So now you can create some Asian inspired artwork on your own or join me at Michaels on Feb. 16th to see my second version of this little burlap beauty.
