I’ve been a little behind on my blog posts lately … mostly because it is summer. I love this time of the year when I can sit outside and watch the chickens play and enjoy picking my dinner from the garden each evening. Of course, there is also a lot of work to be done putting up the produce we grow, which cuts into my crafting time.
But, since the beets, zucchini, yellow squash, peas and peppers are in the freezer and we’ve made three different kinds of pickles, plus pickled peppers and onions, I have found time for a few little projects while waiting on the tomatoes to ripen.
This is one project I have been wanting to do for months — I just couldn’t think of what I wanted to spell. Then, while at Red Robin, I saw they had the word Yummm on their wall and I thought it would be perfect.
The Y is a clear acrylic letter from Clear Scraps. I added paper from Graphic 45 to the back of it and then cut out additional parts of the paper and adhered them with dimensional foam adhesive to the front.
These Ms — both wooden letters from a craft store — are both coated with Wendy Vecchi’s embossing powders. I then used white pigment ink and her stamp to create faux graniteware. I love this technique … check out her blog for complete instructions.
The U and the other M were used as purchased from Michael’s.
And here it is hanging in my kitchen. So cute!
