.:Feature Friday - Creative Endeavor:.

Hey everyone! I am Amanda from Every Creative Endeavor and I am so excited to be here today at Sumo’s Sweet Stuff! Summer is darling and I have been reading her blog since she was a baby blogger – we started around the same time and her blog has just exploded – for good reason too – Summer is awesome! I was so happy when she wanted me to guest post! Since the Fourth of July is coming up (and Pioneer Day for us Utahans) I thought it would be fun to share a Patriotic project.

USA Glitter Frame

First: Find an old frame that you aren’t using anymore –

I found mine on one of my thrift store adventures.

USA Frame

Second: Spray Paint your frame. I already had the paint on hand from a hutch re-do I had done previously. I love this color – Colonial Red from Rust-Oleum.

Third: While my frame was drying I painted the U S A chipboard letters that I bought at Hobby Lobby – I used FolkArt Thunder Blue. I wanted a deep blue and loved this color.

Fourth: After my paint was dry – I used Mod Podge and added blue glitter to my letters.

Fifth: While my letters where drying I used my Silhouette to cut out different sized stars with the Frosted Glass Premium Vinyl. Then I cut them out and placed them all over my glass. I left a few of the small stars off on purpose.

Sixth: I used E-600 to glue the letters in place on the glass.

Seventh: Using the small stars that I left off on purpose I filled in any large blank spaces. I left them off because I didn’t want to waste one by covering the whole thing with a letter.

Eighth: I added a few dots of E-600 to the inside of the frame and placed the glass inside. The E-600 will hold the glass in and you won’t be able to see it.

And then your done!
