Olivia still thinks it's fun to go to the studio and today she spend a couple hours cutting and gluing works of art. A friend of ours asked her last night what she was thinking when she was making these pieces, and she replied without a pause, "I wasn't thinking I was just making." A girl after my own heart. Makers Gotta Make!
This weekend Lon helped me give the studio a fresh coat of white paint. I also decided the door from the office room to the larger work room need some Oleander + Palm personalizing. All the cool kids and "real" bloggers have fun and creative doors. I wanted something that was really O+P. So, I chose to paint the door a pretty grey and add triangles to it. I used gold vinyl and the faux marble contact paper that I also used on the DIY Marble Shamrock Print I created.
I used my trusty Cricut Explore machine to cut out these faux marble and gold triangles in no time at all. Vinyl is magic. It's so much easier then painting and I decided my landlord might appreciate the triangles being just vinyl and 100% removable. I placed them on the door in two rows. I chose to arrange these in a random order, kind of like the wooden tray I recently made. The studio has all white walls, so I think this makes the space a lot more interesting and hopefully it's very O+Pish.
The Cricut Explore has gotten even better with the new Cricut Explore Air.
