Family is Forever Burlap Art

Today I am so excited to share with you the Family is Forever Burlap Art I created for the Michaels Stores and Hometalk Pinterest Party going on this Sunday, February 16th, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at ALL Michaels Stores.

Family is Forever Art Board #MPinterestParty from Cupcakes and CrinolineI wasn't sure what I was going to make but then I went to my local Michaels Store and was inspired by all of the Pinterest End Caps ~ I wanted to make everything! 

Hometalk #MPinterestPartyI decided to make something with the Burlap Canvases that were available and of course...something 'Chalkboard'!  

Here is what I ended up buying/using: 

Burlap Canvas ~ the ones I chose came in a pack of 3 so I have enough to make a few more Pinworthy Projects

A package of Project Life Cards ~ these are wonderful for scrapbooking and displaying - one side is specifically for journaling and marking special life events

Chalkboard Banners ~ These are awesome - I used a white chalk marker to draw on mine ~ it went on smoothly and easily.  I made a few mistakes but I was able to use a damp cloth to wipe off my banners and start fresh.  

Heidi Swapp Color Shine ~ I used this to 'stencil' my #5 and also to paint a small wooden frame

Wooden Frame

Mini clothespins and twine

Package of buttons ~ perfect for so many projects. 

Old Ruler

Hot Glue Gun

Washi Tape

First, I used the Color Shine to stencil a number 5 in the bottom corner {I like to use the #5 because there are 5 in our family}.  I also used the Color Shine on my mini wooden frame.

I covered my ruler in washi tape and hot glued that to an area about one third of the way down on my burlap canvas and I then used twine to criss-cross my canvas hot gluing the ends to the back.  I used 3 gold thumb tacks to add a little dimension to the ruler.

I added some photos and used the Project Life Cards to add sentiments in various areas of my canvas.

I also taped one of the Project Life cards to the back of my small frame ~ Family is Forever.
