Mixed Media Key Sign
When I’m not in my craft room, or blogging, or driving kids to and from Cross Country, I’m usually at a wonderful preschool. It is a special place where it is (and should be) all about the kids.
I thought it would be special to have a small, somewhat adult piece of art in the room. It’s a good idea to keep those teachers happy, right? Right!
This little sign will hang above our designated key hook in the room. I love this image from The Graphics Fairy. This whole project was made from stuff in my stash.
I trimmed some brown paper and rounded the corners. I used this mesh-y background stamp and StazOn Ink in Timber Brown. I used the same ink around the edges of my print out.
See that little tear up there? I did that with my trimmer–totally my fault. I made the executive decision to leave it because I thought it added to the vintage look.
After Mod Podging the image to the brown paper, it curled up. That wasn’t supposed to happen, and I realized it needed some more weight behind it. I trimmed a cereal box and Mod Podged it to the paper. Problem solved.
It was calling out for some dimension. I added the cute little heart and antique key, along with some skinny washi tape. I think it will perfect in it’s new home!
