Chevron Canvases

I am a crazy person. I know it. I have come to terms with it.

I have been preparing for the 2013-2014 school year all summer. I have been enjoying my summer, don't get me wrong, but I have also been slowly getting things ready for this year. I have been able to check some things off the list and that always makes me feel prepared (even if it is just an illusion).

This is my newest creation... I printed a free chevron template and traced the lines onto the 12 x 12 canvases. Then I used a foam brush to hand paint the colors. It was pretty quick and easy! I am really happy with how they turned out.

Then I went and found a few quotes I like from Pinterest. I typed them up and adjusted fonts and colors. I added a border, printed, and cut them out. I thought about using ModPodge to adhere the card stock, but I just hot glued them.

I have a plan for these. They are going to decorate the top shelf of my tall bookshelf. 

I am going to repurpose this tall bookcase. The canvases are going to go on the top shelf. I am going to put this shelf behind my desk. It is going to hold all my instructional stuff, but I want it to look nice! Here are the things I have so far.

Most of these are from the Dollar Tree. I am going to go back this week and see what else they have. I am hoping they have restocked, because I would like to exchange the blue for purple.

I have these still in my room! I think I am almost set!

What do you think?

Love those! I am buying chevron shelf liner so maybe I will just have to make something chevron like this to tie it all in! I love using Dr. Seuss quotes in my classroom so this may be perfect!!
