Hi everyone! Today some of the ladies over at Skrap n' Chat are excited to bring you our 2nd annual Blog Hop. We're going to be sharing some fun projects with a Spring theme and we've got some great prizes to share as well. It's going to be tons of fun! You may have just arrived from Stacy's blog but if not, make sure to head over to Karen's blog to start things off.
Things haven't been exactly Spring-like around these parts weather wise. We had two big storms back to back last week and the snow is up to our necks out there. But despite the snow outside, Spring is on its way and that means Easter is coming. Easter isn't my favourite holiday and therefore I don't really have a lot of Easter decorations so I decided I wanted to make some Easter decor for my house. I stumbled across a great idea on Pinterest to make washi tape canvas art so I ran with it. I started out by cutting a template out of paper and taping it down to my canvas. Then I just started laying strips of washi tape down.
Once I had them all in place I carefully cut around the shape with my scissors. I do not have a picture of this because I am forgetful but go slowly as to not rip the washi. I ripped the washi in a couple of places. So to hide that, I decided to do a liquid pearls outline around the shape.
Then I decided to get real crazy and cover the entire shape with glossy accents.
After everything dried I added some Thickers and a sparkly button to finish off the canvas and voila:
I think this would look great propped up in a little easel somewhere. Or I might attach something to the back so I can hang it up.
I hope you enjoyed my post for today's hop. I had a lot of fun preparing my project for today and I think it's going to look really cute in our house.
And now for the fun part. I have a little prize to give away to one lucky blog hop participant. All you have to do is leave me a comment here on this blog post by Friday, April 11 at midnight AST for your chance to win.
And just in case you stumbled here out of order, here is a list of the other blogs who are participating. If you're going in order, head on over to Robyn's blog, the last stop on the hop.
