my own yellow and gray

A few months ago I came across these extra thick canvases in the bookstore, and have been eying them ever since. So, as soon as they went on clearance during the summer sidewalk sale I happily grabbed some for myself. And, of course, had to go along with my little gray and yellow theme lately. I told you they go wonderfully together. :) Here's the outcome.

The greatest thing about these really thick canvases is the visual interest you can add by letting the picture spill over the edges. Plus, as soon as you're tired of a design, you can just repaint them! This is already my second coat on these ones.

It was a fun project that added a nice touch to my workspace!

  5. Those are awesome! You just gave me inspiration for my bedroom - I've been looking for a way to tie in my color palette. Great job!
