You Have the Key to my Heart

Hi! Do I still have followers out there??? I feel like I've neglected my blog for a month! Since I am participating in the One Month To Win It contest {Season 7}, I have spent all my free time on The Graphics Fairy blog deciding which image to use in first week challenge. There are so many awesome images that it was really DIFFICULT to pick one. I'm a little obsessed with skeleton keys right now, so I got a little sidetracked and decided to make myself a sign :) For the first time ever, I attempted to print on material. Oh yea, I was very scared {mostly because I can't afford to ruin our printer!} but it came out beautifully. I used spray adhesive to attach my burlap to a regular piece of computer paper. I had no issues, but please, use your own judgment, not all printers are the same! I also cut my boards from an old pallet that my friend, Sarah B., rescued from the curb ;)

I attached the burlap with thumbtacks to the middle board, and then, I printed out my saying on my Silhouette Cameo, or as I call it, my Cammie.

I Mod Podged the letters in place, let it dry and then added another layer over all the boards.

I kind of love it.

Didn't it print out so clear and pretty??!  I might become obsessed with printing on fabric now!

Remember the chippy, rusty bird bath that I told you about HERE? Well, Christmas has been put away and now I am still deciding what I should do with it. I'll figure something out....eventually.  Unless any of you have a great idea you'd like to share with me?!?!

Thanks for visiting! Til next time!
