Today is a really special day for our Design Team at Thoughts2Paper, it is our very first Blog Hop!!! You should have arrived to my blog from the ever inspiring Jan!
It's back to school time already and you know what that means... the holidays will be fast upon us! When we decided to have a Christmas in August event, I knew what I was going to do for my project. This awesome Kaisercraft Advent Calendar from the Thoughts2Paper store was just the perfect project for me to create for my little boys!
To start, I painted the base coat with Folk Art Christmas Red acrylic paint. On top of that I added Helmar Crackle Medium 2 step process to give my project an aged effect. The next step was to assemble the frame, and then start covering and assembling the drawers. For those steps I used Helmar Craft Glue.
The center red background paper on here is My Mind's Eye "So Sophie" and the other papers are Bo Bunny's "A Gift of Love", aren't they fun? I also added some Graphic 45 little postage stamp accents from their "Christmas Past Collection" that I had in my handy arsenal.
