This cute little sign is my first scarlet project. I have more. The funny thing about this sign.....it started out white. Well, actually it started out as just a piece of wood:
It wasn't white until I painted it white.
I punched some flower shapes out of a a couple of paint chips.
Using some Tacky Glue, I put the flowers on the painted wood. I added the word "Imagine", which was just a sticker I had. (I still dream of a Silhouette machine!) I also glued a piece of ribbon to the edges of the wood for hanging, then embellished the paint chip flowers with some cute gems for just a little sparkle.
I thought for just a second that I was done, but it was just too stark and I didn't like the way the sticker lines were visible. I decided to add a piece of scarlet ribbon all around the sign and I was so pleased with the way it turned out. It kind of added some shimmer as well as disguised the sticker lines while still letting the gems sparkle through.
The image isn't blurry....it's hard to get a picture of shimmery, gossamer ribbon.
Do you like my new favorite color?
I'm having fun imagining all of the scarlet projects I'm about to do!
