Make Your Monday!!!

I'm linking up today for Twice Remembered's Make Your Monday linky party!

My Make Your Monday contribution started with one of my favorite little square frames from Dollar Tree (they don't appear to carry them anymore... boo-hoo). The frames was originally silver, I spray painted it black.

Then I took some paper for acrylic paints (I forget what it's really called, sorry), cut it to fit the frame. Then sponge painted it to look like parchment paper. Next, I took a rubber stamp and applied it with a goldish brown paint.

Lastly, I printed out our monogram letter in the font and size that I wanted, and transferred it onto the paper with black transfer paper. Then I filled it in with black acrylic paint and WELLA!!!

Don't forget to head over check out what other creative ladies are doing for Make Your Monday!

Double The Fun Giveaway Is Coming... I promise!

I know I promised the giveaway would be posted yesterday, but I'm slowly adding to the scrapbooking prize. Bear with me, I'll have it posted soon!!!
