(aka... boredom busting project #1)
Today I bring you a cheap and easy project to combat an otherwise boring day. All you need is an hour and at the end, you'll have a really cool art project for any area of your house. My project, it got hung in the newly remodeled bathroom.
What you need: 1 salvaged window left on the side of the road or found in some falling down old barn (my sister actually collects these to do paintings on, so I stole this one from her apartment)... price ZERO Dollars.
1 old book with neat line drawings, mine is from an estate sale and is titled "Life and Adventure Medieval Europe" from 1936... price 25 cents. I grabbed this book from my collection of old books to recycle for this project because it was very yellowed. I wanted to bring more yellow into the bathroom to make it look like those old yellow tiles might actually be there for a reason. HA!
1 jar of Modge Podge... you can get it at any craft store, and I consider this a negligible cost because I have used it on some many different projects.
What to do: Flip the window over so you are looking at the back. Coat the glass in a thin layer of modge podge. Rip pages from the book and tear them into large chunks. Lay the image side down on the modge podged glass. Add more modge podge to the back of the paper pieces. Roll out any bubbles that form. Let dry... then hang it up.
This is just one way I filled by bored Friday. I will let you know what other project I worked on tomorrow.
