I am noticing hints of this pretty patina blue creeping into my home. I love this color, and I love the freshness that it adds to my red, green, brown home.
This vinyl design is one that I put together for my friend's cub scout group. They are planning to put it on small wooden plaques for Mother's Day. I had just one left, so I grabbed a black frame, spray painted it and added the paper behind. The vinyl is on the glass. I like the shadowbox effect. Once I had it finished, I had to tone the blue down just a bit with a little brown ink and a sponge.

I got the idea from Punkin Seed Productions. She has beautiful, hand painted blocks. Hand painting is not my forte' so I used vinyl.
Check out the background for my picture, I thought it looked kinda cool. It is the waxed paper that I paint on. After years of using paper to protect my table, my friend mentioned that she uses waxed paper. It is awesome! I don't have to deal with paper sticking to my projects! and nothing soaks through. It works great for stain, mod podge, paint...

Are your kids counting the days until school is out? Mine are. My little ones can't wait to have their brothers and sister home for the summer and my big kids can't wait to sleep in (like that will happen...).
I put these blocks together for my wonderful husband to put in his classroom and one set for my kids to take to their teacher this week for teacher appreciation week.
