About Me

My photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

Again!!!!! Yep.....again!!!

I just can't leave well enough alone.  
The backs of the ladder back chairs in the dining room looked like 
they needed something.

So.....they got SOMETHING!!!

I made some monogrammed banners to hang on each chair.

Each person has their initial of their first name on their chair.

This is Jeff's



and finally...a "G" for a guest that might happen to eat with us.

I started with a cardboard box that I received some crafting supplies in from Cricut.com....woop woop!!!!  
Love my Cricut....just sayin'
Ok, back to the deets of this project. As I was saying,  I started with a cardboard box. 
I ripped it open and cut 4 triangles for the banners.
I distressed the triangles by ripping some of the smooth paper off to reveal the corrugated paper underneath. 
 I then used white gesso and scrumbled some on hap-hazardly. Let it dry and meanwhile I used my Expression and the Old West cartridge and cut out the letters.
Black shadow and patterened DSP was cut at 4-1/4"
Used some dimensionals and placed them on the center of the triangles.
I torn a piece of a patterned velum and adhered it with clear glue. Glued down a white button and also a small white clothes pin.  
Then using a border punch and white card stock I made the scallop edges. 
Then using a hot glue gun I adhered some pearl strings around the edges and left long tails at the bottom.
Then I ripped some fabric strips and used some white and black seam binding and tied it around the tails of the pearls to make a faux tassel. 
Added some more torn fabric to the top corners for hanging.

Tied them to the chairs and stepped back and clapped for joy. 

I absolutely love them!!!!

Until later, sit a spellers.......Gotta sit split.....TFL!!!!!

Ive been following your weblog for a month or so and have picked up a ton of
fine data and loved the strategy youve structured your site.
I'm trying to run my very own blog nevertheless I feel its too basic and I need to give attention to numerous smaller topics. Being all things to all of us shouldn't be
all that its cracked as much as be
