yes, it's me!
Busy, busy, busy around here. I had a big deadline this week and today I finally got to the point that I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Love that feeling!
In fact, I was feeling so good about it that I had enough time to create a quick little project for Mother's Day.
For some of us Mother's Day can be quite challenging as my Mother passed away many years ago. I don't need a card or a gift, but I can make something as a little remembrance. Join me and I'll walk you though the steps.
I am going to use a 4 x 6" burlap panel for the base. I wanted something I could nail into and the panels have a hard base that I can do just that. The package comes with two panels (you will need just one for this project).
tip: I used a piece of cork to push the tacks into for painting. They stand up and I don't get paint all over my fingers.
Use a small hammer to nail a tack into each corner of the chipboard and right into the hard base.
DO NOT glue down yet...this is just for sizing.
I added a piece of tea dyed cheesecoth to the back, then hand stitched around each of the 3 circles to keep the three layers in place.
Just a couple last touches to finish.
A Chitchat word for each token (inked with Frayed Burlap). My those chitchat words come in handy.
At the top of the panel...use another tack nail and hammer it into the center. Can you see it?
Just like this.
I can see it created over and over in different colors and sentiments and for many occasions.
wish - wish she was here
love - will love her always
blessed - that she was my mom
the perfect reminder
cheers for a good week,
