I saw this inspiration that I found over at THINGS with WINGS. I LOVE their stuff, I would have it all over my house if I could. But, until then here is what I made, inspired by them.

I didn't take step by step pictures, I was just so excited to get started, I forgot!!

I bought a canvas at Hobby Lobby the size that I wanted to use. And cut out 4 in. ( that was the size that worked for my canvas) scrapbook paper. And free handed the lettering. I used some foam paper to get some different texture and height of the words. They had a fun sparkle foam that I used on the word "FUN".

I Mod Podged all the paper on the canvas. This was tricky, it wouldn't stick as well as I wanted. I know there is other kinds of Mod Podge maybe another one would have worked better on canvas. I did get it to stick but I had a lot of wrinkles on the lighter weight paper. Which I used to my benefit and antiqued the wrinkles and made them fit in just perfect. I used my favorite Delta, Burnt Umber Semi Opaque paint and painted the edges and rubbed it on the edges and words to make a worn look. 

I was so excited to make it, it turned out so FUN!!! 

Here is a sneak peek of my next amazing mirror I snagged for $2 BUCKS!!!! I am a sucker for mirrors!!! You will have to look sideways :o)..what color, what color will it be!!!!!

I am Ready To CRAFT!!!!

I FINALLY am moved in and am ready to decorate and CRAFT!!! I am soooooo excited. I have missed the excitement of having an idea and making it a reality!!!

Here are few pictures of what I have decorated so far, they are not completely done, but it is fun to play with....

I found this sign on clearance at Hobby Lobby (love this place) for $5.00 bucks, I had to have it, the colors are a lot more vibrant on the plaque. SOOOOOO cute!!

More finds at Hobby Lobby. I wanted a clock and fell in love this one awhile ago, so when it went 50% off it was MINE!!!! The "HOME" sign I found for clearance for $8.00..YEAH!!! It matched the clock perfect.

And the amazing finds on my wall.....I framed and added my girls art work from school, it turned out cute!!!

Here is my favorite shelf, with my favorite Willow Tree figurines....

The WALL...yes, the pictures are all crooked, every time someone runs through the living room they move..which is ALL day long ;o) And yes those are golf clubs...I have them all over the house. My husband works from home and when he needs a break, he putts around the living room ;o)

My mantle. This is the first time I have had a mantle. I have so many idea's in my mind, but this is stuff I have around my house to make it a little homey for now. I have changed a few times since this picture. I have family picture in the red frame now.

Thanks for coming to play.......I have another project I worked on all weekend...stay tuned it is coming up next!!!!
