Okay, now that that is all settled, lets talk about my projects. I have to say, that this may have been the most time consuming thing I have ever done, but I LOVE it!! I started out with raw wood stars from the craft section at Wal-mart. I then sanded them down(just the rough spots) and painted them with a white Acrylic Paint for crafting. This is the part that took the longest. I put three coats on before I was happy with the coverage, and it took a while for them to dry. After they had dried over night. I used different pieces of Rockabilly DSP from SU to cover them. I just traced the star on the backside and cut them out. I adhered them to the stars using Modge Podge. I then sanded the edges to give it a frayed look. The main images all came from the new Stephanie Fizer set, The Poppies. I stamped each image on a MFT Perfect Panel using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I then colored them in with my Copics. If you are wondering, I didn't use green on Taylor's because she HATES green. Her favorite color is actually purple so I colored her pants purple, but I wanted them all to match, so I stuck with the Riding Hood Red and Black. The images and their layers were then cut out using my Cuttlebug, Circle Nesties, and Oval Nesties. I stamped all my cutie pie skull images separately and cut them out after coloring them. I added music notes to the main image panels(they are stamps in the set too) and on the stars. I then used some screw hooks that I got in the hardware department at Wal-mart and added them to the tops of the stars, and then two to the bottoms. On the top hook, I added a bow using SU ribbons, and some May Arts ribbon. For the bottom hooks, I decided to add a name plaque. They were made using Black and Riding Hood Red CS. The letters, from the MFT Bling Bet, were stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black, Riding Hood Red, and Kiwi Kiss ink. I then cut them all out and arranged them on the panel. The ribbon that is used to hang them, and as the hanger at the top is from the SU Valet Ribbon Originals. I sure hope my girls will love them as much as I do...if not, I am totally keeping them!! I just hope their mom doesn't let them play with them....YIKES!! If you have any questions about these, just send me an email and I will try to answer them!!

Now, it is time for you to get moving on!! Hop to FRANCES' BLOG to see what she has in store for you!!
