Are you ready? Well I hope so, because I have had quite the time putting MPM together this month! The project I had in mind was a bust. I hope to have it done for next month, but it's a little bit more project than I had time to do, and my Monkey has been sick, so trying to actually accomplish something with her clinging to me, and crying for me to hold her was a little difficult. Last night I finally had to throw in the towel on that project (for now).
Then I came up with another project, and it was quite simple, and relatively quick. But I have now spent the last 2 hours trying to load my pictures! For some reason my computer is having difficulty reading my new memory card. I'm not sure if it's the computer, or the card!
I decided to put one of my old frames to good use, you know the ones that haven't hung in your house for ages, but it's a good frame, so you don't want to just throw it out! I did a quick spray paint job on the frame - I love Rustoleum Espresso Brown!
Then I took some fabric that I picked up at Walmart - only $.87 for 1/3 yard!
I put my handy-dandy Cricut cutter to work on some dark brown cardstock...
What I did: I cut my letters and flowers, then arranged them how I wanted them to look. Then I mod podged the cardstock onto the back of the glass piece for the frame, making sure to place them backward, so they would read properly when viewed from the front side of the glass. After my letters and flowers were in place, I slathered on another layer of Mod Podge, placed my fabric piece over the letters, and spread more Mod Podge over the back. I let it dry then secured the glass into the frame with a little hot glue. I finished it off with a brown tulle "hanger".
So what do ya think? Do you want me to give it to you? I will...well at least to one of you!
