This week the challenge was to create something that reminds you to be thankful, whether it's a banner, homemade art, or anything that spreads the message of Thanksgiving.
I'm all for a challenge, and any excuse to get crafty this holiday season, so I decided to make my own art for this IKEA frame - which I had sitting on my end table with nothing inside.
An empty frame is no way to spread holiday cheer, so I pulled out my handy dandy laptop and my graphics program (InDesign) and whipped up this computer art.
That's right, while the texture appears to be burlap, it's actually just printed on computer paper. The background is just a burlap image that I found online just by searching "burlap" in Google images.
It looks nice during the day, but I had to take some night pictures, too. With the glow of the lamp it just adds to that little warm and cozy feeling in here.
The graphics I used were from this website. Love when you can download free texts and graphics to use for your own personalized art. Makes it a heck of a lot easier. :)
Soon it will be time to start decorating the tree! Until then, I'm still enjoying my fall decor for a little longer.
