Continuing with our store front stories I want to talk about this cool display that our art director, Jane put together. We put up that white wall divider to divide the space (how clever, right?) between our office space and our storefront. We wanted a way to hide our office space further by displaying something over them. We had some unused canvases on hand that were purchased a few years back from a garage sale, so our super creative team decided to use leftover denim and sweater material as well as a few of our t-shirts to brighten up the canvases. Jane stretched and stapled the materials over the canvas to achieve that look.Unfortunately the fabrics alone looked, well, lonely; but the t-shirts looked cool. So to remedy those lonely fabrics we opted to print out some pictures from our photo shoot and center them on the fabric. I think this idea could work for you at home too. Try using family photos or kids’ photos pinned over a piece of leftover fabric. Parents or grandparents would love a gift like that for Christmas!
Take a look at this photo we used for the wall:
These donkeys were present at our fall catalog photo shoot but weren’t too keen on being photographed. Our photographer tried to befriend these two asses with hay, carrots, whistling and even baby talk, for a close up. This was the only picture that actually turned out; at least they are both looking at the camera.
Can you see the zigzag thread framed around the donkeys? Jane printed the donkey pictures onto recycled card stock, cut and then sewed them back together for a handmade feel. I think the extra effort was worth it. Didn’t it turn out great? We would love to hear of any creative canvas projects you’ve done!
