I Love You, A Bushel And A Peck

I've seen several of these projects via Pinterest or on other blogs and recently got around to making a few cute little signs of my own. It helps that I had a ton of canvases laying around from a $2 mystery Michael's bag. (Score!) 

I cut up a few yarn magazines and I'd been sent, making sure the pictures were colorful. 

Then I decoupaged those pictures to the top of the canvases. 

Once the canvases were dried, I applied a saying using contact paper that I bought from the dollar store and cut out with my Silhouette machine. 

Then I painted over the entire canvas...

And peeled the contact paper up to show the colorful pictures underneath. 

My cousin, Maggie requested an orange sign that said, 'I Love You, A Bushel And A Peck.' I thought it was a cute saying so of course I made it for her.

To be honest, I think it would have turned out better if I'd have used a lighter picture as a background, or used a lighter paint for the top coat. 

I made a few other signs while I was at it. 

This saying is one that makes me think of Amazing Boyfriend Fiance!

I know a 13 year old that is going to LOVE having this in her room!

 I have ideas to make a few more of these, possibly using lighter pictures and darker paint colors. But these signs were a lot of fun to make.

I was featured!!!
