Spring iPhone and iPad Wallpaper – Spring is all around us and so is the beauty of this season. This is the time of year to shed your winter coats, scarves and boots and get outside. Take your kids, dog, camera, sketch pad, picnic basket and start exploring the world. As a gentle reminder to get out and take in all of nature waking up from a long slumber, I’ve created these iPhone and iPad wallpapers. I love this great quote from Marilyn Monroe “Keep smiling because life is a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.”  Use these designs with your lock screen or as your regular background. Have fun, get out and enjoy your life – it’s a beautiful thing!

Blue Theme – iPhone Wallpaper and Background – Is your iPhone like another appendage of your body?  Mine definitely is for better or for worse. I wouldn’t even want to take a guess at how many times I use my phone each day… I’m sure it would be a bit scary.  That being said, it means that I’m staring at the same wallpaper background dozens (sure, we’ll go with dozens) of times a day.  It’s time for a change. Truth be told, I think I still have the original background I had on my old iPhone 3G – yikes!  So I created a fun little package of iPhone backgrounds that you can switch up on the fly.  Just download, save to your phone and then just swap out whenever you’re feeling bored.

DIY Wall Art Anyone Can Make – Easy & Inexpensive

| Crafts & DIY, For the Home

Easy and Inexpensive wall art anyone can make.

Easy and inexpensive wall art anyone can make.

DIY Wall Art Anyone Can Make – We’ve lived in our new house almost a year and a half now.  Like most people, we did all the big updates first and now we’re just making tweaks here and there. Our en suite bathroom is a monotone cream colour and while it looks clean and simple it also looks a tiny bit boring.  I figure it’s just Michael and I who ever see it but even for us it needed a little something. Michael is one of those guys who likes to have a say in how the house is decorated – no pinks or floral’s for him.  We decided that instead of painting the bathroom, we’ll try to bring in more colour with accent pieces, so to start things off I decided I could make a quick and easy canvas wall art.

This is something anyone can do… no artist talent needed for this project. Oh, and did I mention this is super cheap to make too.

Materials:

  • 3-4 different colours of paint (I used cheap acrylic paint from Michaels – $1.99 a tube)
  • 1 colour of paint for the base and a brush to apply it
  • Canvas (again, I got this for about $5 at Michaels)
  • Circular pouncers (mine where Martha Stewart pouncers)
  • Hanging supplies (hammer, nail, string/wire, staples)

Instructions:

  1.  Lay your canvas on some old newspaper and paint the entire thing with your base colour – I used a warm white colour. Allow to dry.
  2. Starting with your largest pouncer, dab into paint and then onto canvas – mainly at the top and spread out. Now, use the next largest pouncer and do the same thing but go down the canvas a little bit more.  Carry this on with all the pouncer sizes until you’re using the smallest pouncer sporadically at the bottom of the canvas. Make sure not to go right to the bottom of the canvas (unless this is a look you want).
  3. Repeat this same process with all your paint colours.
  4. When everything is dry I reapplied some of the first colours I used again, just so they weren’t buried underneath all the other paint and to fill in any open spots.
  5. Allow to completely dry.
  6. Staple string/wire evenly across the back of the canvas. Put a nail in the wall where you’d like the wall art and then hang the canvas.
