And now for a post that doesn't have anything to do with a holiday! It does have something to do with The Graphics Fairy though.
We needed a little sign at work regarding a temporary plumbing issue. We could have made a quick sign with crayons and construction paper...but then I got the brilliant idea to make something at home. Not that I have anything against crayons and construction paper mind you!
Karen from The Graphics Fairy, has a wonderful image of a washing pitcher and basin that is perfection for a bathroom.
I used a raw piece of chip board and some Melody Ross paper. I printed the image and gave it coat of clear acrylic spray. I cut it out with my little sharp scissors and exacto. Vellum tape was used to stick it to a piece of white vellum, and I trimmed around it with decorative scissors.
I painted the edges of the chip board, and punched the corners of the black patterned paper with a pretty corner punch. I only Mod Podged the back of the paper because there was flocking detail on the front.
