The Craft Loft Is My Happy Place and a blog hop

Hi Everyone,
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. 

I also added some flowers using a Prima flower pack I found at Hobby Lobby as well as a canvas flower. I hot glued those to the upper and lower corners. 
My quote is inspired by some quotes I’ve seen on Pinterest.  

Jo is giving away prizes during the hop…Here’s how it works.
