Tri-Cut Art: DIY

 hello, everyone! I'm linking up my latest projects today here and here, and am so happy to give you all another DIY. It's pretty similar to the last, with a little twist.
If you can't tell from my latest projects, I'm on a bit of a bicycle craze at the moment. and when I saw the darling clementine boxes in our garage I knew I had to do something with them. Frankly, I think the back of my project might be more fun to look at then the front. It's reversible, I guess :) 

This project will work well with any size of wood, although mine put together formed a rectangle roughly the size of a standard 8 1/2 by 11" paper. I want to try this project next using an old crate or wooden pallet.

 I found my bicycle graphic here and divided the image onto my three pieces of wood [shown in pictures 1&2]. I then outlined everything making an impression on the wood [picture 3] which I then outlined in pencil (picture 4). I painted everything up [picture 5] and hot glued some twine on both sides to hang it [picture 6]. I think it's a nice variation on my last diy.
 and voila!
truth be told, I am rather taken with the back at the moment, and may be flipping it back and forth whenever my merry little heart desires. double the fun, I say.

does anybody else remember when clementines came in boxes instead of cardboard?

  1. Came over from Graphics Fairy to see the bicycle image to find another person who collects clementine crates - I love their graphics!

  2. What a great idea - I have a couple of crates in my garage!

  3. What a great idea, my son is a bike-ophile and I know he'd love both side of this art work. Dropping by from the Graphics Fairy.
