Good Day Sunshine Mixed Media Assemblage

I like making happy art and hopefully this saying will brighten someone’s wall for years to come.  This 10 x 10 gallery wrapped canvas was fast and easy to make!

I went through some boxes in the attic and found these wood surfboard ornaments and stained glass star.  Sometimes it’s a good thing to straighten up.  YAY.

An assemblage always needs a happy or inspirational saying and Good Day Sunshine has been playing in my head recently!  Of course I use my FREE magazine fonts to add interest and color.  I painted the 10 x 10 gallery wrapped canvas a pretty shades of turquoise for the sky and water and “latte” for the sand.

I remember purchasing this star at a shop in Cannon Beach when I first moved to Seaside in 2005.  I put it in the shoe box after the pretty silver solder oxidized and I didn’t want to display it anymore.

These are the kinds of assemblages that sell at Sunrose Gallery.  Either a tourist purchases it for a souvenir for the happy time they had at our little beach, or a new homeowner buys it for their new beachy themed room.

It was fast and easy to make and would be a fun project for kids to make with handmade paper surfboards, a colorful paper sun and send them on a treasure hunt with some magazines to find some pretty fonts for the saying!

It’s going to be a fun summer!

  1. before I even read your recommendation for doing this with kids I thought this will be perfect to do with my nieces. they have unique names so was thinking one with there name. how do you adhere the magazine letters on?
