Simple Watercolor Wall Art print, She puts the Color inside of my World

I know a girl.

She puts the color inside my whole world.

maybe you’ve seen her taking a more hands-on, behind the scenes role around here?

She’s always inspiring and has more creative talent than I know what to do with, she’s my daily muse … and she’s growing up, right before my eyes. This summer we’ve been carving out space in our home to give us each the creative outlets we deserve.

Love this DIY Watercolor art in this  home office!

This is a sneak peek at my new office that is slowly, but surely coming together. With lots of help from my resident stylist/designer of course.

I know a girl, she puts the color inside of my world.

This post is my first in the Cricut Design Star challenge, I know I am as flabbergasted as you are as to how I got here but hey, when life hands you an amazing cutting machine, loads of craft supplies and a few lemons … you know what they say — make stuff!

I wanna be the next #Cricut Design Star! #IMadeIt

That is what they say, right?

This month my team’s theme was:

Song Lyrics

I knew as soon as the theme was decided exactly what I wanted to do! Something I could look at when I’m feeling uninspired or less than that will make me smile and think of her. Thank you John Mayer.

Simple Watercolor Wall Art Project made in half an hour using a Cricut cutting machine

The project couldn’t be more simple, you can create your own one of a kind piece in as few as 15 minutes.

To make your own watercolor wall art, you’ll need:

– A frame
– some card stock
– a piece of artwork (could be watercolors, or markers, or ever crayon)
– a Cricut or other cutting device

I used the Nate’s ABC font to get the look you see here, you can find it in the Cricut Design Space to use on any project you wish.

Now for the fun part, want to win a Cricut of your own?

Here’s How

Cricut is GIVING AWAY a brand new Cricut Explore each day until the end of July. All you have to do is upload a photo of ANY project you’ve made (it doesn’t have to be made with a Cricut!) and tag #cricut and #imadeit on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. If you tag me in your post as well (@stacyofksw on Twitter and IG, or here on Facebook, Pinterest) then they’ll know you found out about the contest here and let me know too. It would be so cool to see one of you win!
