Lets talk about Red White and Blue!

Hey ya'll!

Well this blog post kinda fell all into one with a few different things.
1st- My momma and pops are feeling down missing my little brother (he is in the Army)
2nd- This theme for my Silhouette Challange is Patriotic:)
3rd- My granpap, who was an outstanding member of society and a previous service member, passed away         friday the 6th.

Also don't forget to show love to all the Silhouetters at the end of the post!

I decided to make use of my pallets I have laying around :)

I tore apart the pallets as gently as I could so I had some viable pieces, then re-assembled it like this

I did some splishing and splashing with some paint and made it all pretty.

I decided to leave the original wood as the white because I cut white vinyl for the stars and didn't want to take away from that. Plus rustic is my momma's thing. She LOVES anything old lookin'.
I mean she lives in a 1700's house with a bit of a modern twist, like heat and a working shower and toilet.
HAHA Love you momma!

Of course I tried to do a paint stencil without sealing the dang thing first and well that didn't work out too well!

They look like star blobs. Half star half  blobs haha!

I left the blurbs because I thought it gave it character!

TA-DA! Here is my final project:)

Now go check out all the awesome patriotic inspiration and get to crafting!!!!

Love all you ladies that give support and inspiration everyday!
