In the Garden...

Hey everyone!  Today…I decided to create a project for outside.  I have a neglected little corner of my crafty yard….where I create with my green thumb, but is neglected by my crafty thumb….MY GREENHOUSE.  Today, I have used some of Pinque Peacock’s gorgeous Layered Garden Beauties for a wreath for my greenhouse door!  This is a simple floral foam wreath form, layered with jute twine.  I have added loomed flowered, in both ribbon and jute, along with burlap bows to create this awesome addition to the outside of my normal crafty space.  This makes me so happy to approach the door of my greenhouse in the heat and humidity this time of year!  Thank you, Pinque Peacock for this bit of happiness!

Craft It Up & Link It Up…Sponsored by Pinque Peacock!

I am posting today as a guest designer for Craft It Up & Link It Up Linky Party hosted by Tara of Craftin Desert Divas! Every other Monday will mark the beginning of a new semi-weekly linky party and you could win fabulous prizes!!

This linky party theme is Peacock Hues.
The sponsor  is Pinque Peacock.

The more you link up, the better chance you have to win.  Visit Craftin Desert Divas for all the rules and to play along.

Here is what I created for this linky party....
For my project, I created a canvas sign!  I started with the two darkest hues underneath….I felt they were a little overpowering for my d├ęcor.  I swiped them in 3 equal areas using a drybrush technique.  Once dry, I applied a crackle medium.  Once that was dry, I applied the other 3 hues, a teal, light blue and light purple, also using a dry brush technique, but alternating and combining the colors so as to not to be too harsh.  Once they were dry and crackled, with the dark purple and dark green coming thru…I cut black vinyl in the phrase, “Keep Calm & shake your tailfeathers”.   That basically means…”Chill out and shake yo’ ass”…shake that ass fo’ me”.  (inside joke!)  As it would happen…all of my bathrooms are that beautiful teal color, so I have a reminder to my guests to “Shake ‘dat ass” ummm, “tailfeather”.  Once the vinyl was applied, I finished it with a black and silver mesh ribbon and some silver nailhead bling mesh cut to one row.  I have to say….I LOOOOVVVVEEEE IT!  It adds a little of my crafty self (and sass!!!) to a very forgotten room of our home!

Hope you will Craft It Up & Link It Up!!!
