Y’all, Pin there. Done that. is BACK this week! I don’t remember why I didn’t do it last week. My house has been full of sick people, me included. I think we’ve all bounced back. There’s a pretty ugly stomach bug going around. I would avoid it if you can.
I decided to combine two pins that I’ve pinned in the past.
Obviously I didn’t use the state of California, because who would want to use that? I’m totally kidding, if you WANT use a shape of California, go for it. Bless your heart. I recently found on my Cricut SCAL program that it has the shapes of the states. I was so excited, I knew exactly what I was going to do with the state of Texas.
- 2 shades of brown paint
- heart shape from a previous project
- modge podge
I painted the canvas to start. While the canvas dried I went through the tedious process of finding the “right” cardstock. Since I knew where I was going to put this project, it was easier to pick out my paper. Then I put my Cricut to work.
I really thought the shape of the Texas would take a lot longer. I loaded the paper, hit CUT on the program and went to work on something else. I didn’t even get situated in my chair and the box saying the cutting was done came up and the Cricut had stopped. I was impressed by that! Next was the job of finding the perfect font that looks similar to the one in the pin. It didn’t have to be, but I liked the BOLDNESS of the font.
Letters cut and ready to start but …
not before I do something inappropriate with the letters.
Yeah, I know the modge podge is still wet. Instead of doing it in my craft room, I ran into the living room to catch an episode of my “favorite” show, House Hunters (and maybe an episode of Moonshiners). I did the letters a tad too big, but I’m okay with that. I managed to work with it. I’m sure if Heather had made it, her heart would be south for Austin.
What do y’all think?? Did I pull off combining the two pins?
Total time from start to finish – about 35 minutes
