When I saw the project for January on UCreate, I knew it’d be perfect for my craft room. I grabbed a bunch of $1 frames from Michael’s and got to painting (yes, that’s a discarded sandwich among the mess – just ignore):
When I first saw all the “keep calm” stuff, I wasn’t that fond of it. But it started to grow on me, and then I read the history of “keep calm and carry on” here and thought I’d go with it.
The tutorial offers a free download, and I made several of my own to go with it. For “craft on” I used the logo bee from my craft blog, and I especially like the “blog on” with the bullhorn. If anyone’s interested, I can post the ones I made as free downloads.
I don’t like wasting color ink on the printer, so I just sent these to Walmart as 4x6s and had them printed for the $0.09 or whatever the minimal cost.
I tried to make a variety of flowers. I even put a big fluffy flower in the middle of a frame to add some dimension:
And then I hung them as a group on my craft room wall. You’ve learned by now, I struggle with hanging frames and placement – I feel the oval is kind of off by itself. But I wasn’t sure what else to do.
There’s still time to get in on the Create-With-Me over at UCreate – the tutorial is from The Secret Stitch Club and they were great to help me when I was trying to make some posters on my own.
Even though I had already made an embellished frame (HERE), I still thought was fun to craft and show it off as an online group – maybe you’ll do it too!
