Family Friday

Hi Everybody,
I can't believe I totally spaced on last weeks Family Friday!  Well, I can believe it, but I'm still sorry!  Ok, so I'm on top of things this week and I have a project for you.  About a year ago (scary how long things can stay in our stash!), I bought this sign at a scrapbook convention, and I thought it was really cool, because you could use the negative and positive space.  Here's what the sign started out as:

Then I put some blue acrylic paint on it.  This was SO easy to do.  (I don't know if you're supposed to put any thing to prep it, but I didn't.)

I left the inside of the letters the natural color. I liked the shadow effect it gave.

This is what the back looked like.  I just put the pictures in the spaces, and covered any other open spaces with black paper.

And here is the final product!  I stitched around the letters with a white gel pen.  It wrote smoothly on the acrylic paint.  I then cut some of the shapes from the Cricut Lite cart B is for Boy. That is one SUPER cute cart!!  I used the Shimmer pack from DCWV. 

Start to finish this project took a couple of hours, so if you get a chance to get something like this do it!!   TFL, don't forget to enter what you make for or with the kids in your life, and hope everyone has a chance to craft today :)


  1. Great job! I love the white stitching detail!

  2. What an amazing turnout. You would have never guessed that is was so bland in the beginning with all the cute details you added. It is wonderful!
