Craft Attitude and a StencilGirl Hop

Today is day 2 of a 4 day Hop....
It's time to play....

For this project, each artist used Craft Attitude Printable Craft Film.

My daughter gave me this Ohio Shaped wooden plaque
 and asked me to make something for the baby's room.
This seemed like a good time to use it.

I painted it white with gesso.  The photos and design called for it.
The craft film is pretty much whatever is on the base
will show through the film once it is glued down.

I used the Map 6 Stencil by Mary Nasser & the little crosshatch stencil
in dark reds and  light grays around the edges...
Leaving the central area mostly white for now.

I followed the directions on the packaging of the Craft Attitude Film....
I printed my pictures in mirror image 
since the little guy was wearing a Go Bucks shirt.
I did a test sheet on regular paper to make sure it was what I wanted...

I printed it, then waited the recommended two hours to let it dry completely...
then used a glue stick to glue it down.
Easy Peasy!

I added some magazine words,
I'm a Buckeye..
Since the little guy doesn't live in Ohio... he has to learn where his roots lie!

I played with different reds, filling in the background.
I added more of the crosshatch stencil in the bottom area and 
shaded the entire edge of the state shape with the Dark Cherry color StazOn Ink.

I added stars for where the baby's family members live in Ohio
and a heart where Columbus is.

There you have it.
Another Hop Project complete! 
Make sure you travel around to each artist's blog
 every day this week and leave comments.
There will be a giveaway at the end!
(1 pkg Craft Attitude & $25 Gift Certificate for StencilGirl Products)
The winner will be announced on January 27 on  StencilGirl Talk.
