Home Decor - Matting for Wedding Guest Signatures

Hello Everyone...

One of Four craft fairs is done. A month from now I will have all of them behind me and things will slow down again and I can get back to normal here on my blog :). I already purchased my treadmill because the weather here in NY has been so terrible this fall, but I have to pay myself back and then I also hope to get the Imagine too.

I am working on editing a video that I made a couple months ago and never shared here and in the meantime I wanted to show this project that I made. A woman that I work with is getting married and having a John Deer theme. She wanted me to decorate a matting that she purchased for wedding guests to sign and have it go with her theme. I knew I needed a little outdoor scene so the farm equipment could go at the bottom and then have the rest be sky...so I made a little hilly/grassy area. For the sky I took some clouds and used removable adhesive and stuck them down in various places. Then I used light blue Versamagic Chalk ink to ink over the matting so that when I was done I peeled the clouds off and was left with white clouds. I didn't want to adhere clouds all over it because then it would not be smooth to write on. So I did it this way and it turned out fantastic.

She absolutely loved it.

Hope you enjoy...I will post the video over the weekend :)
