Blue & Brown Wall Art

I decided I needed a little bit of new wall art.  I love the blue and brown color scheme and found some fat quarters that were just calling my name.   Then today I found this tile frame thing on the closeout isle and I knew what I would do.   



I used Mod Podge to adhere the fabrics to the tiles and frame.
When they dried, I folded over the excess fabric and glued it to the back sides of the tiles. I did the same for the frame.  



I arranged the tiles and then rearranged them again.  I even had Rose take a look with her artistic eye.  We decided on a pattern and I hot glued them to the frame. 



Turned out pretty good for less than $10.00 total.

  11. Thank you so much for linking up to “A Little Birdie Told Me…” at Rook No. 17 last week! I apologize for the belated visit…this week has been a real beast disguised in fondant and frosting.

    I love the color combination of blue and brown too and the fact that you had an inspiration and carried it out so beautifully. For those of us who don't have the best sewing skills, this is a wonderful way to "quilt" without having to dust off the neglected sewing machine. Brilliant!

    Best, Jenn
