2013 Artisan Finalist Blog Hop–Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of our Blog Hop!  I hope you've enjoyed everything you've seen so far.  Amazing, right?  If you started from the beginning, you just came from Kaitlyn's blog.  You can use the buttons at the bottom of my blog to continue on your hop.

But first, I've got a fun little project for you.  Unfortunately, my pictures of this item did not turn out so I had to rely on one of my fellow artisan finalists for a pic (Thanks, Elizabeth).

I started with an unfinished open frame.  After painting it white, I created the back by covering heavy chipboard with some Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper.  My husband was nice enough to let me borrow his staple gun to adhere it securely.

The "B" was purchased at a craft store.  I just traced it onto Designer Series Paper, cut it out, and adhered it to the front with Modge Podge.  The edges of the "B" were sanded lightly to make them smooth.  The "B" was then hot glued onto the backing.

BframecuButterflies, flowers and leaves were the finishing touches.  I think this would look perfect in a little girl's room, don't you?

Thanks for stopping by today!  Enjoy the rest of your hop!
