Window 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.
Priming the entire window provides an important base for building the art on the window’s surface.
The 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.
I 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.
The 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.
When the painted stenciling was dry I applied decoupage medium over all of the window surface to seal the painting and paper.
I embellished the inside of the frame with rope and a chain attached to the top of the window completed the wall art.
Since 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.
This is one of the windows I made a few years ago. I applied the words using a white paint pen.
