Awhile back, I was reading one of my favorite blogs and she had done some linen artwork as a ‘look for less’ post.
Her finished product was gorgeous. I thought that something alongs those lines would be a simple solution for the artwork in our guest room.
Unfortunately, the paper that she was used was sold out. So, I went on the hunt for other neat paper that I could for the project. I ended up purchasing two handcut sheets from Etsy.
On one of my recent shopping trips to the fabric store, I picked up some burlap. I chose it over linen simply because of the price tag. The burlap was 3.99/yard and the linen was $12.99/yard.
I had Mathlete pick up two Ribba frames from Ikea in the 20 x 20 size since that is what best accomodated my paper.
Then, I measured and marked the fabric for my frames.
Because the 20×20 frames have a floating mat, I also had to cut that down because I wanted to use its weight to keep my fabric in place.
Once I had everything cut, I used fabric glue and glued my paper down to each piece of fabric.
I left it there to dry for awhile. I put the fabric into the frames and closed them up.
Now I just need to get Mathlete to hang them in the bedroom (along with about a million other items around the house!) and that room will be almost complete!
