I was linking up to a party a couple of weeks ago and found a blog that I have to apologize for not remembering. I should have saved it but I did not. She had made this cool phone art project that she saw on pottery barns website for like $1500 dollars. She had a great tutorial and I wish I could say the same for mine. Either way if you know who she is then let me know. I would love to give her credit for coping her wonderful idea.
These are the matte pictures that I bought from the dollar tree. I bought 12 of them so that I could make the phone pad. They are more of a plastic material than a regular matte art piece.
Sorry that i do not have a picture of all of my steps. I then covered each of them with scrap paper that I bought at Walmart. I bought a book of scrap book paper. I think it had like 50 different sheets for $5. I purchased the one that had mostly blues and browns since that is the colors in my living room.
I then painted each number on with craft paint. I picked a different color for each of them. I just hand painted them instead of printing off numbers or using stencils.
This is the final project. I love the way that it looks. I hung it near my new entry way system. I think that it really adds something to my art wall. This wall is huge and tall. It is the only cathedral ceilings that we have. I eventually want it to be covered with different art pieces and so far it is coming along well.
