Instead of doing 1 project, I decided to go ahead and do 2. Here is my first project:
I did a scrapbooking layout page using a lot of die cuts and the 3 burlap flowers in the kit. The only thing that wasn't from the kit was the white cardstock I used for a fence. I found the perfect picture for this layout....my 2 youngest grandchildren taken a few years ago. Wow, how lucky was that! I mounted the photo onto the burlap sheet that was in the kit, then mounted that onto a sheet of the printed cardstock, and in turn onto a 12x12 sheet of the cardstock. I then embellished the page with some of the die cuts from the kit. Now on to my 2nd project:
Now, this one was a bit tricky at first. I was thinking this would make a great Fall centerpiece, but I just wasn't sure how I was going to do it. A friend of mine suggested the wheelbarrow idea. So I used one from the Silhouette. The fence is also from Silhouette. I had a wooden piece that was just laying around waiting for me to do something with it (insert wink here). I decided to use that as a base and spread texture paste on the bottom of it, spray it with green mist, and layer it with "grass", pushing it down so it would dry together. I then hot glued some of that after it was dried, to further keep it in place. I then put a fence around it. Before I went any further, I decorated my wheelbarrow by putting some of the grass into it and hot gluing the flowers inside. The sentiment pieces didn't have a "stem" to them, so I hot glued stems onto each one, then hot glued that inside the wheelbarrow.
I then proceeded to put die cuts in front of the wheelbarrow, using the same "stems" in order to hot glue them onto the base. I glued more die cuts onto the fence. It took about 2 days to do this, as I wanted to be sure the texture paste had dried properly.
I hope you stop by the Scrapbooking with M.E. boutique! Every month there is a new kit, but you might want to order quickly, as these go fast!
Thanks for stopping by!
