Guest Post – The Letter 4 Blog

I am so excited to have the Letter 4 blog here again today!!! How awesome are these sisters? If you haven’t checked out their blog, you absolutely must. They are such an inspiration with all their crazy creativity and ideas! Not too long ago they were on the Martha Stewart Show! Seriously awesome.

Today, Jamie is sharing this ADORABLE canvas idea that I think you might LURVE :)

I’m so honored to introduce myself again here on Fran’s beautiful blog! I truly love reading Small Bird Studios everyday, Fran is such a sweet soul and amazing blogger!
We are The Letter 4. A blog of 4 sisters with all different talents and tastes. We grew up so close to one another and our blog has been a way for us to feel close to each other again despite living far apart. The oldest is Julianna, who likes to craft and cook. Next is Jade who is our expert chef. Then there is Jamie who is the designer/printable maker of the blog. And last there is the baby of the family, Janae. She is our style guru and is always sharing hair tutorials. You can link up your style related posts to our What I Wore Link Party every Wednesday.
I wanted to share some wall art I created recently with you all.
I had a couple of blank canvas’s that were calling my name and I got this idea in my head that I wanted to create something and cut the canvas in places so that when I put a light behind it, it would shine through.
So I sketched out some clouds on the back of the canvas. When I stood the canvas up I was able to see through the canvas to my sketches easily follow my little pattern to create some clouds. For the clouds I just dipped the brush in several colors I wanted without mixing to much and swirled it into a half circle.
After I was done and my clouds had dried, I took an exacto knife and cut the top of my ridges on the clouds on the spots where I wanted the light to shine through more.
I was so happy with the way it turned out! And from the side it gave it a little added 3D bonus since the could ridges popped out a little bit.
Perfect addition to my daughters room. It sits on a dresser in front of a light :) You can see other creations I’ve made over at our blog.
Thank you so much again for having me Fran!
