Hello There! I hope that you all had a great weekend....I saw my first Robin - WHOOOHOOO!! Bring on Spring!
Besides, "celebrating" the onset of spring(for the record...it did not feel like spring. AT.ALL. It was COLD here this weekend!!! Poor little Robin!) I was busy putting the finishing touches on my gallery wall....I can't wait to show it off to all of you.
One of the gallery wall projects I tackled this weekend was creating a fun way to display our last name initial "C". I found this idea courtesy of Shelley from House of Smiths...and, I might add, was absolutely thrilled that I had the same fabric that Shelley used! And since it happened match my colour theme, I decided to use the same fabric as she did:)
Unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures until STEP 5 of the tutorial (opps, I'll try to remember next time!), but it's pretty easy, if you have any questions, please leave me a comment below:
Here's what you will need:
Step 1: Iron your fabric and then place the frame insert on the wrong side of the fabric, cut out a square making sure to give yourself enough fabric so it will wrap around to the back of the insert once it's in the frame.
Step 2: Mark where you want the insert to go on the wrong side of the fabric.
Step 3: Spray the insert with adhesive (this should be done in a well ventilated area) and place back on the area that you marked on the fabric.
Step 4: Flip it over and spray the edges with the adhesive and wrap the fabric around the insert.
Step 5: Place in frame...it should look like this:
Step 6: Add your vinyl letter to either the glass of the frame (that's what I did) or you can put the vinyl on the fabric BEFORE putting your newly covered insert back into the frame:)
All done!! Looks great, doesn't it! I can't wait to show you the entire gallery wall in all it's glory...stay tuned;)
Also, be sure to visit Kara at Happy Go Lucky today. She was kind enough to let me take the reins today and introduce myself to all her readers - isn't that great?!?!
