MFT DT Creative Challenge: Die-namics Home Decor

Good Tuesday morning to you! We've been working on the kids' bathroom re-do, so I haven't had as much creative time as I'd like lately (and thus the lack of posting), but I'm so excited to be back with this month's MFT DT Creative Challenge. Joanne has challenged us to use our Die-namics to create home decor! Oh my goodness -- the possibilities! :)


I created this frame to sit on top of our piano. I started with a frame from IKEA and filled it with paper, bling, pearls, felt and six different Die-namics: Textile Rectangle, Rolled Rose, Mini Rolled Roses, Dizzy Doily, Butterflies, and Musical Notes.


Here's a closeup. The sentiment is from Clearly Sentimental about Music, this month's Triple Scoop set. I did some zig-zag stitching around the patterned paper, and I sponged around the sentiment with Antique Linen Distress Ink.


Visit Kim's Blog to see the list of designers who have taken the Home Decor Challenge! We'd love to see your projects, too! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today -- have a great day!
