Shutter Display – Bright New Look & Awesome Sign

I love shutters, I just wish I could come up with 
something creative to do with them.
For the longest time, this is how 
they looked in my craft room.

I love the yellow, I love the lanterns
but something just isn’t flowing.
Perhaps it’s those ugly orang-ish candles
in the lanterns for a start!

I gave the shutters a fresh & brighter coat
of yellow paint.  I also cut out a little
banner from scrapbooking paper and glued
it to some bakers twine and draped it across the shutters.

And I painted those aweful candles.
They were just for display anyways, I wasn’t going to 
spark them up so I slathered it on, nice and 
thick - wax is hard to cover with paint!

And now for the “AWESOME ” Sign!

I started with a ceramic floor tile, 
painted it a pastel turquoise.

The best part is that I bought a Silhouette!
Hooray for me!

So I got to work and cut out the words on cardstock,
and placed it on the now dry tile

I painted the first 4 words grey.
