Angelic Magnetic Board

This creation, was a potential pillow, that became a magnetic board.



After printing my angel image onto canvas cloth, I set it aside.  My original intention was to make a pillow.  However, the more I looked at it, the more I thought it would look great hanging.




Well, as long as I was making an art piece, why not make it functional art.  Instead of bonding it to a piece of wood, I used metal.  I knew immediately which of my ornate wood frames I would use.  I painted the frame, and a rose magnet a soft white, followed by an antique wash.





It still looks nice without the magnet.









 

I think I'll make another one, or two, or.......

Rosemary can I ask how you printed the image to the canvas? Did you send it through the printer ironed to wax paper or transfer it. It came out lovely.

I love this, Rosemary. What is the finished size and how to you transfer onto such a large piece of canvas? So pretty.

That's a great way to display fabric without it being a pillow. I love the idea of using it over metal so you can use magnets on it. So clever!

I see a lot of creative blogs, but I always come back to yours. You're so inventive and creative and there's always something elegant and imaginative to see. Thank you Rosemary, for everything you do, and thank you for being so generous and sharing all of it.

What a stroke of genius! I love the idea of the fabric as a magnet board -- this idea lends itself to being used by those of us 'less-creative' too by using fabric that's already printed, etc. :) Thanks Rosemary!
