Last month, I issued a crafty challenge to my craft-blogging friends over on Crafterminds. We made a list of crafting trends, everything from pennants to pallets, and lots between. The challenge was to use as many of the trends as possible, and come up with a single project. Here is my result, and the trends I was able to incorporate.
I made a “Keep Calm and Mustache On” poster. I painted it all on canvas, doing all the lettering by hand… except the mustache, which is actually a furry stick-on mustache that I got at the party store!
Here are the trends I incorporated: (1) The color scheme of red/grey/aqua, with aqua (2) chevron border, that is (3) ombre. The middle is a variation on (4) “Keep Calm and Carry On” with a (5) mustache, done in the style of (6) subway art. At the top are (7) pennants that are held in place with (8) birds.
I had a blast putting this together, and love the final result! I thought this would be another project that would get tossed aside… but as a mom of boys, who grew up with 3 brothers, I find myself looking for a place in my house to hang it!
Now, go check out the other challenge projects! (or… link up your own!)
