Artisan Finalist Blog Hop — Day 10

Well, here we are!  The last day of our blog hop!  If you have landed here from Melissa Stout’s blog, welcome!  I have really enjoyed her posts these past ten days, as well as the posts of the other finalists.  It has been fun seeing their projects in detail and learning about what they enjoyed doing and what their struggles were.

My post today shows my last 3-D item.  This was my last item to make and it seems that I always struggle with the 3-D items the most.  I never know what to make!  So I put it off for as long as I can, and then I’m struggling to get something made by the deadline.

I found this paper mache letter at a big box store.  I painted it white and then covered the front with the scalloped designer paper.  I sanded all of the edges, and then proceeded to embellish it.  I stamped the balloons and paper pieced the colored panels on them, including the flag panel hanging down on the bottom one (can you say, T-E-D-I-O-U-S?).   Lots of fussy cutting on this one.   

Well, I hope you’ve enjoyed viewing these ten projects the past ten days.  I’ve truly loved reading your comments on them!  I hope you’ll come back and visit my blog often. 

Now it’s time to hop on over to Sandie Conner’s blog and view her last Artisan project.  You’ll love it!

Thanks for stopping by today!

  1. This project is great!!! What kid wouldn’t love having it in their room? It’s amazing how you included so many details in one letter. I’ve really enjoyed seeing all of your projects – thanks for sharing.
