FiskaFriends 2015 Blog Hop


Happy Friday Friends.

Today we are celebrating a friendship of Crafters brought together by Fiskars.

This hop runs from Friday 3/27/15 to 3/29/15 11pm PDT. 

All of the blogs on today's hop are former Fiskateers. 
Even though the community is no longer, our friendship of 140+ has continued.

I want to thank Jean Bullock for keeping us all organized.
&
The 2015 FiskaFriends hop Sponsors who have been very generous.

My project for today's hop is in progress.  

I spend a lot of time hanging out on Pinterest 
and found idea for hanging jewelry or other items using old drawer pulls.  

I found some antique looking pulls at Hobby Lobby on clearance some time ago a
and just stuck them in my stash.   



I know you've been there.  That idea in progress forever.  LOL

Last weekend I was poking around Michaels and found these neat little wood pieces.  
Then it was all about deciding which design I like.  
Me, not being able to make a decision, bought one of each.
They were only a $1 each. 

I sanded each of them and then decided I would group them in a collage.  

I took photo to remember what I came up with. 



Since I've been dabbling in Mixed media.
I wanted to go with that idea/theme.  

Also, I had to consider the background wall color which is a deep purple.  

So, as of today.  Here is where I am with the project.




You might notice that I changed the direction of the rectangular pieces.  
That was sort of an accident.  
After I created the white butterfly piece, I discovered my directional error.  

The one in the top left is not done. 
 I think I will be dry brushing it with a purple color and then use a background stamp on it. 
I also feel the purple oval needs a little something.   

The drawer pulls will then be mounted in the center of the oval and square ones.  
The rectangle ones will have the pull mounted towards the top.

I still need to cut the screws on the pulls as they are too long.  
And of course make a decision of which pull to put on each piece.  
Oh.... and to find two more drawer pulls.  

I will be sure to share when I am done. 
 Maybe by the end of the weekend.

  6. We must be sisters by different mothers. I do the very same thing when I go to Mike's or HL. Probably why my craft room is a disaster.
