Home Decor Hop April 22-24

Welcome to my blog for my Home Decor project.  I hope you got here from Kimmarie If not you can go back to Faith and follow the line up.

I made a Memory Board, but it is a unique Memory Board.  I love Cosmocricket Paper and I "over bought" this pattern, "Girl Friday."  I started with an old 12 X 24 canvas, randomly tore the paper, and then "mod podged" it in no particular order.  I used five or six more coats of Mod Podge, then I used ribbon and just criss-crossed the canvas, putting Tim Holtz Brads at the ribbon intersections.  I am planning on using some of my tag swaps that I have received and love so much. 

This project cost almost nothing except for the Modge Podge and would also be great to put pictures on. 

OK - Blog Candy--Follow Faith's instructions for the big give-a-way, but I am also giving away two bottles of Lindy Stamp Gang Spray.  Just make sure you sign up to follow my blog and leave a comment of how you would suggest using a board like this one. 

Now go to Kathy's  I will announce the winner for my give-a-way Monday night.  Thanks for looking.

I have seen hundreds of memory boards over the years but never thought of making one myself by covering a stretched canvas with paper! That's quite a unique take on the idea. I would use it to post reminder notes I think or to display greeting cards I receive from family and friends.
