Metamorphasis Monday/Baby Lambs
Welcome again to Met...Monday...where things have been undergoing strange changes (Big smile)....I now look around my house/farm and thing 'what can I change for next Monday!' First I have to show you, the sheep have been undergoing changes...new lambs!
These are Tunis sheep brought over by Thomas Jefferson! Ok now that I have made my farmer hubby happy let's move on! We have been changing our home to a lighter springier look, we live in an older farmhouse and I often change things around to lighten up the look.
One of my favorite tools of all time is Mod Podge! Will wonders never cease? For last Saturdays' post I showed how to decoupage with Scrapbook papers -unfinished frames....love it. see here http://ribbonwoodcottage.blogspot.com/2009/03/pink-saturday_27.htmlFirst I covered these letters (from Joann's ) with the M.P. then placed spring Scrapbook paper over it, rubbed it down hard and let it dry. Do this with all your letters (hopefully you are not trying to spell Chrysanthamem) Hahaha...
While your letters are drying, take various round objects, trace around them for circles. Once they are cut out I then cut little flower scallops around them.
Next I rolled the edges with a pencil.
Once these are done, start stacking them. Maybe you have seen these done in felt or wool for those little cute brooch pins that are popular.
Glue them together on your letter, I used hot glue ( I love things that plug in)
Add a button...next I took a little bit of spanish moss cut two little pom poms off some pom fringe I had to make a next....I burned myself...try not to do this.
I add them to the S and hot glued them! Ouchy Momma!
There you have it! A little tiny spring Metamorphasis on the West Coast....That is what we are doing ladies...a little Metamorphasis one house at a time!(Big smile)
Have a lovely day! Have a wonderful Palm Sunday!
