Here is my mood board. I challenge you to make your own rustic mood board to inspire your project. It's not required at all, but if you do be sure to put it in your blog post.
Here's the box of crafty items I received from CanvasCorpBrands.
The first thing I made was this little banner. I used their Canvas Mini Triangles and the pink, yellow and green colored sheets of burlap. I cut the burlap into little circles, folded them twice and sewed four of them by hand onto another burlap circle in a contrasting color. There are lots of tutorials on the Internet that show how to make fabric flowers. Use the cute little pink, green and natural clothes pins to hang the mini triangles on a pieces of twine.
I also altered this small clipboard. I started off by using the Tattered Angels Naturally Aged Paint System. I just followed the instructions and added the paints and sprays like it said and it made this beautiful finish on the clip board. Then I cut a piece of the natural colored burlap and glued it to the sides since I didn't do the paint treatment on the sides. Then I cut a piece of the pink burlap and cut out some words from one of the pieces of 12 x 12 paper they sent me and glued them on. I wanted to be able to use this clip board so the pink burlap piece is removable and I didn't really add anything else. Also, I wanted to be able to see and enjoy the aged paint effect.
This is how it started.
And here's how it ended up!
