Window Wall Art

6-DSCF3391Window Wall Art

I recently acquired some more windows and I just couldn’t wait to begin some transformations.

I had done this a few years ago and loved the way simple wallpaper border could make a plain window look like art.

1-DSCF3353Priming the entire window provides an important base for building the art on the window’s surface.

2-DSCF3360The next step is the color base, but before applying it I had to choose a wallpaper border. For this window I chose a fishing lure border with rustic colors. A tan base color was the perfect marriage.

3-DSCF3367I highlighted the frame with a red color that was also in the border. Over the top of the red I dry brushed the tan and over the window surface I dry brushed the red.

4-DSCF3371The wallpaper border was decoupaged along the bottom half of the window and I stenciled “LIVE LAUGH FISH” on the top half using the red paint.

5-DSCF3375When the painted stenciling was dry I applied decoupage medium over all of the window surface to seal the painting and paper.

6-DSCF3391I embellished the inside of the frame with rope and a chain attached to the top of the window completed the wall art.

8-DSCF3386Since I had everything out I also made this window. The border on this one is a picket fence. The sunflowers and the butterflies were cut from other wallpaper.

Enjoy!
