I'm sad to announce that I didn't make it into the top 5 at one crafty contest.
To see who did click here.
It was so much fun being a part of One Crafty Contest. It challenged me to complete my paint project on time and work with products I have never used before like washi tape. The challenge for round 5 was glitter I created this 4th of July outfit for my daughter. I think I may make coordinating outfits for my other kids.
Here are some behind the scenes pictures!
I made a star stencil by printing a star graphic. Then I traced it with crayon and layed the image face down on a file folder. I could of printed the image on card stock but that would of been too easy :)
I traced along the outline of the stars with a pencil. It left an image that I was able to cut out with scissors. You may be wondering why I didn't use my Cricut? Well, I left it at my mother's house.
Then, using a small paint brush, I brushed Mod Podge on the areas where I wanted the glitter.
I chose the word beautiful because it best describes America (America the Beautiful). I printed the lettering on to a iron on transfer (you can buy them by the computer printer paper) and trimmed around the letters.
I followed the instructions to apply the transfer.
Then using Mod Podge and a paint brush, I carefully painted each letter.
Then I covered the Mod Podge with glitter.
Then to tie the shirt and jeans together I added a star.
The outfit by itself was cute but It needed a little more to make it shine! Thanks to my daughter for being my model.
She just couldn't resist!
