My BIGGEST (and proudest!) project I have ever ever ever made! :):):)

Hi everyone! :)

Today I wanted to share my latest project I made for the challenge at LESSology! This time we are making WALL ART! :):):):):):):):)

This is seriously the BIGGEST (Size wise that is!) project that I have ever made! :)




And here is how I made it :):):)


I started with a canvas that I got at Michael's :)

Here is the size of my canvas :)

Next, I used Mod Podge to put on one vintage dress pattern that I got from Lea :)

Then I added a second coat of Mod Podge and another dress pattern :)


When that step was done...

I started making my paper flowers with these papers :)


To fill the entire canvas... I ended up making 88 flowers!! :) ...and YES! It took me THREE WEEKS to make the flowers! LOL! :)

And here is my finished project again! :)


And some close ups :):):) If you want to see how I make my flowers, make sure to check out my video tutorial :):):):)



And just so you can see how big my canvas is... here is Hubby Brian holding it :):):)


And here it is hanging on our bedroom wall :):):):):):):)

And here is our sponsor info for this challenge :)

TradeFish Designs (aka “TFD”) was established by Cecilia Stephens in April 2011 in Raleigh, North Carolina. TFD was created because she felt there was a need for stamps sets crafters could use in cards, scrapbook pages and other crafty projects for the boys and men in our lives. TFD is devoted to creating stamps with masculine themes, imagery and sentiments. You can use the images and sentiments for feminine cards or projects too, but the focus in the design work for TFD stamp sets is really about the boys.

The Prize for Challenge #4 is a $20 Gift Certificate to the Tradefish Designs store!! Wooooooo hoooooo! :):):):):):)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :):):)
