One Sunday I was bored and just had the urge to craft!! I have seen these cute cross collages at First Monday in Canton, TX. Every time I see them I tell myself I could make it if I tried. So I did! I have to say I am pretty impressed with the final project! This was the first time I have ever done anything like this! I LOVE IT!! Nobody believes I made it...
When I went to Micheal's for the project I was incredibly overwhelmed! I think I spent 2 hours just walking around... I found the jewelry centerpiece right away at the door. Then I found a plain wooden cross on the next aisle. I knew I wanted to attempt to use Mod Podge because I have seen sooo many cute projects with it. I decided before I started my project that I wanted to use blues, grays, and dark brown. I made it for my bedroom and those are the primary colors I used. So the rest I just started pulling together! Paints, stickers,stamps, gems, and stencils. The biggest find for me was a book of cardstock with a vintage theme that ran through it. It really helped me to tie everything together! The last bit I bought was a frame at T.J.Maxx! They are super cheap! This first crafting experience was pretty expensive because I had to buy all the essentials. Now I am armed and ready for my crafting adventures.
Here is the final product!!
