Key Wall Decor

I’ve had a thing for keys lately. Especially old skeleton keys. A couple of months ago I hit the key jackpot on a creative excursion to Hobby Lobby. This key wall decor will go perfectly on my “key to my heart” collage wall.Key wall decor

  • I started with this cool chipboard key.
  • Then i used my rub-on metallics. With my fingers I rubbed on six different colors to create depth and an aged look.
  • You can also use a cloth or sponge applicators.
  • Don’t forget to cover the edges and inside the circles.
  • I used a make up sponge to get into the small nooks and crannies.
  • These rub-on metallics don’t really dry. So be sure to cover with a artist’s fixative!

This is not a complicated project, nor a terribly time consuming one. But it was fun to make and I love the finished product! Now to figure out where to hang it.Key Wall Decor - After

Summer Bucket List

We’ve been brainstorming for the last couple of weeks, deciding what kind of fun activities we want to accomplish this summer.  I was surprised that our list had a slow start, but now it’s looking very healthy.
I made a pretty list and we’ll put a sticker by the ones we accomplish.  I probably should have done a little more research because one of our ideas was to go to an exhibit at the Center for Creative Photography at the U of A; but they are remodeling.  No exhibits until late August. 
What’s on your summer bucket list?
