Spring Mantle and a DIY Canvas

Hello friends!
I hope you had a great weekend!
I was able to enjoy the last sun we are going to see around here for a while & I had some more time to craft and decorate for the spring!
Once again I played with my dollar stamp set....
{Can you tell I am having fun with it---I  mean this is only my 4th project with this same crafty look!}

This time I made myself a simple canvas.
Nothing exciting, nothing extravagant, but a quote that I love.
And the simplicity that I love.

Just enough to give me a change for the spring.

For this project I just started with a blank canvas and used my trusty dollar section alphabet stamp set {I found mine at Michael's craft store!} to write out the quote. I used just a plain black ink this time.

I didn't worry about lining up the text, I just embraced the messy imperfect look of the words being uneven and the sentences and word placement being a bit random.

It bothers me that I messed up one of the words---{can you find it?} butttt I decided it doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful.
And this project makes me happy.
{I am linking up to a few of my favorite crafty parties---be sure to check them out for some great inspiration!}

So pretty! I have an alphabet stamp set but my kids have "lost" a few letters so I can't be counted on to make anything with real words on it!

I stood for a second looking at the word "droqs", even though I have read drops...
Really inspiring craft, beautiful quote and lovely final chimney look!

You know that I now have to rush off to Michael's for this stamp set! What a fun idea - and if anybody notices the mistake - politely take back the glass of lemonade you just gave them and ask them to leave immediately!!

I am SO loving not only your canvas, but your whole fireplace. The soft blues and worn paint really give it the casual, beachy look that I love :-)

I think your canvas is perfect, even with the couple of "Q"s where "P"s should be. In fact, I think that adds even more character and charm to it :-) I need to pick up a set of alphabet stamps!

I have my stamps! I have my stamps! And all I want to do is stamp things!!!!

Mine are larger than yours (because I wanted the courier font) but it should work out for what I have in mind ...

Perfect quote for spring, too, Jaime Lyn! Love this look (and the copy of Sea Glass on your mantle). Like a breath of fresh air!

Wow, pretty cool! Love it... can't find the word but it really doesn't matter! I think I know different lyrics than you have but yours is pretty neat, too.

Great craft! Thanks for sharing!

So beautifully simple...I did take a second glance at the p in drop when I was reading, but it adds a bit of whimsy. The perfect little mantle upgrade. :)
