Awhile ago, I posted about a vinyl wall art project that I was working on for my MIL. For part of it, I used alcohol inks to color some white vinyl. Well I finally got around to putting it up for her. I put this over the doorway to her living room in the foyer. This picture really does not do it justice, I had to stand on her stairs to get a good shot of it, and her lights were reflecting off of it.
She was thrilled, and it looks so much better in person. I did learn one more thing about using the alcohol inks on the vinyl. Don't put your transfer tape on it until you are ready to put it up. I had cut the vinyl and put the transfer tape on it to protect it. When I went to install it, some of the ink came off with the transfer tape. It was not enough to cause me to want to re-cut those parts, but I think it would overall look even better if those parts were just a smidge darker. This entire project was created in Make the Cut on a small scale. I then enlarged it to where that flourish would fit on one 12x24 mat at a diagonal. I then broke apart all the words and fit them on the mats. I then had to assemble all the pieces as I was installing it. Overall this is about 3-1/2 feet long and about 15" tall.
Tomorrow I will have another update on a project that you have seen a part of!
