Stop & Smell The Roses....

Today I have a new inspirational post at DCRU and I wanted to share the rest of the details of my project. My post at DCRU is a tutorial on making these beautiful flowers:



They are so fun and easy to make. All you need is ribbon, felt, and a hot glue gun. I'm sure most of you already have everything needed! Visit DCRU to see the details.

Now for my project I made with these flowers. I decided to make a wall hanging.

First of all I took a cheap chalkboard that I found at an antique store and decided to paint. I painted the edges of my chalkboard with sage green paint then let it dry. I then painted over the green with my pink Tim Holtz crackle paint. When the paint crackled it let the green show thru and gave it a very neat distressed look.



I then took a small hanger that I got from Emmas Paperie and glued it to the top of the chalkboard. Then I wrapped 2 different shades of tulle around the chalkboard. I added a Melissa Frances vintage embellishment, Prima bling & Fabric Letters. I added a Jenni Bowlin butterfly and added my flowers. I just layered them on top of eachother and made a few paper leaves and stuck around them. Easy Peasy!



And here is a close-up:



Enjoy!!!
