Weekend Project #1

This weekend I decided to knock off several projects that have been laying around as well as a couple new projects.

-A wall hanging I saw at the beach "My Happy Place"
-My "When Grizzlies Shine" wall hanging for my classroom
-A fabric canvas wall hanging for my room.
-A baby gift that I need tomorrow...nothing like waiting until the last minute
-A baby gift I never finished for a baby shower a couple months ago

This first project is a spin off of a sign I saw at the beach.  I wanted it to match my new comforter that is creams and grey.  Then I added a verse to it.

Romans 12:12  Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.

I bought the wood slats on sale at Craft Warehouse and painted it with grey primer.  I then cut vinyl for the lettering and placed it on the dried grey board.  Then I painted white over the top of the lettering.   After it dried, I removed the lettering to reveal the grey paint underneath.  I sanded the board to distress it and then added jewels and ribbon.  I love how it turned out
