The idea for this art has been rolling around in my head for awhile now. And actually the project sat half finished on my kitchen counter for days. I love how it turned out though.
I took a few canvases that my daughter had around her room and was doing nothing with. I bribed her with money and bought them off of her. The canvases had flowers on them, so I painted a few coats of cream paint on the canvas first. Then I took some book pages from one of the books in my collection and mod podged them down.
I had a collection of children's silverware (yep, that stuff is the real deal) that is eons old (still had the box) that I found when we moved. I got it out of my husband's great aunts basement when we were preparing her home for her estate sale after her death years ago.
I added the vinyl word EAT to the bottom of one of the canvases (cuz that's what you do with silverware!)
And put them above my pantry door.
I was even pleasantly surprised to see that some scripture was included on the pages I used. Totally random...and totally awesome.
