Magnolia-licious Summer Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Magnolia-licious Summer Blog Hop!  I know you will finds lots of darling ideas as you hop along.   You should have come from Katie's blog if you are going in order.

I decided to make a little Summer sign for my project.  I absolutely adore this Tilda!!!!

I do believe Summer is here!! At least it is in Houston, Texas! I am loving the nice warm weather and being able to finally use the pool a little bit.

I started my project with one of those balsa wood signs from Michaels for $1.  I painted it with some chalkboard paint thinking of going in that directions, but then changed my mind and spritzed it with some white Dylusions Ink Spray for a splattered look, then took some white acrylic paint and used the end of my paint brush to add dots all around.  I colored the images with copics and cut out, cut the letters out with my cricut, then sponged Modge Podge all over.  I added my images and letters and put  Modge Podge over the top of them to seal the on.  I added some twine and cut some fabric and DONE!  Pretty easy little project!

Project Supplies:

Die Cut: Puffy Clouds by Memory Box
Other Supplies:  Chalkboard Paint, Dylusions Ink Spray - White, White acrylic paint, twine
