I had to dye the rope too.  So I dye it Green again using Rit Liquid Dye- Kelly Green

After the Rit Dye dried I add a Stencil from Stencib  What is cool about these stencils that they a sticky back stencil so they worked really well with fabric   I got you a coupon form them good until June 2014

Home deco

This girl loves to play with Power tools.  My Proxxon tools are simple the best for crafting..  They are light weight, small and easy to store.  This is a prefect for a small studio like mine.  


Started with my Delta Sander - sanded my shutters to get them ready for paint

After paint - I put my shutter into my Precision Vise FMS 75

Now to drill and screw my hangers on the Shutter with my Precision Rotary Tool FBS 115/E

Now the fun part - 
Started by placing the Stencib Leave stencil on my shutters
Using my Pan Pastels I added color to the shutters - helpful hint, first add clear gesso on first then add your Pan Pastels - I add three color - two shades of green and a little blue....
Seal project when done.  

Thanks again for stopping by

Hairy Paints

I love when spring get here and you can play outside in the dirt.  Today I took a old pair of paints and made this

super easy, I started by filling the legs of the paints with leaves from the forest floor (it's what I had)  then, I placed a wire basket on the top part of the paints and wire it into the paints.  Added some moss and soil, then added my Feather Grass I purchased at Home Depot.  I add a bar to help support the whole then.

Thanks for stopping by
