IOD Gallery Wall Series #1
I don’t know about you all, but keeping busy and having a creative outlet is the only thing that is going to keep me sane in the coming days. Just in case you need a distraction from the Covid 19 blues too, I'm going to start posting some crafty IOD project tutorials that you might want to give a try. I thought I'd start with the Gallery Wall series from last year. Here's a fabulous way to update or fill out that empty wall or spot that's been driving you crazy!
You can create this wall exactly as you see it here OR you can use these techniques and principles to create your own version ( that’s what I’m going to do). If you want to create exactly what is pictured below, here is the template for making your cuts out of ONE sheet of 1/2 inch plywood.
And here's how each piece comes out of that single sheet of plywood:
I'm actually going to just use ready made canvases from Amazon (or Michaels, Hobby Lobby, etc.) in sizes that are close to what you see here.
We are going to do the entire series of videos for this wall, but in this first episode we will start with the Redoute Floral Vase and the Laurel Relief pieces shown below.
For the Laurel Relief project I am going to use an 8x10 wood panel similar to this one on Amazon.
For the Redoute Floral Vase, I'm going to use a 16x20 canvas board (again from Amazon) and frame it after. I will shorten the vase a bit if I need to to get the right look. Again, feel free to adapt these techniques to your own project as you like!
For these first two pieces you will also need the IOD Kindest Regards Stamp, IOD Laurel Mould, IOD Redoute Transfer, and IOD Rose Toile Stamp, as well as your favorite colors of Fusion Mineral Paint, or Debi's DIY Paint or your own preferred brand of chalk or acrylic paint.
OK, so are you ready to put your worries aside for a few hours and start creating? Let's do this!
Feel free to comment below or on Facebook with any questions you have about these projects or the products featured. I'd also love to see your version of these pieces, so send me a pic or two and I'll share it on our Facebook page! Have Fun and Stay Well! Gina :-)
