I’m super excited to be a part of Jo’s Blogaversary Blog Hop. Jo has been a long time follower of my blog and I was so thrilled when she asked me to participate in celebrating her 4th Blogaversary. Happy 4th Jo!
Our challenge was to make anything but a card. So with my new space I thought it needed a sign to welcome visitors to my loft. Here’s what I made.
I started off with a blank wooden sign I picked up from Hobby Lobby and painted it with a coat of gesso. Each of the 4 boards are painted in different shades of my favorite color blue and then dry brushed with the base color from the board below it. I hope I’m describing that correctly.
Here are the colors I used: (the paints are all by Folkart) Sky Blue, Jamaican Sea, Deep Ocean Blue, and Cayman Blue.
The letters are white stickers from Hobby Lobby by the Paper Studio Company. I added a coat of matte medium to keep them from peeling off in the future. Plus I moved them so many times trying to line it up perfectly that some of the corners lost their stickiness.
Jo is giving away prizes during the hop…Here’s how it works.
- All hoppers must leave a comment and subscribe to each designer’s blog to be eligible to win prizes
- Hoppers will have until 11:59PM on May 6th to leave comments and winners will be announced on May 7th on Jo’s Blog (Jo’s Scrap Shack)
and under my signature you can find all the stops for this fun hop.
Thanks everyone for stopping by and I hope you have fun on the blog hop.
