My PPA26 Challenge

Happy Monday! I have been meaning to complete this project for WEEKS now…OK truth be told, MONTHS! I will explain in a minuet why getting this completed was so important, but I was so excited to finally have the motivation to complete it thanks to the PPA26 challenge. I decorated this cute cork memo board for my daughters room. It was EASY and FUN, and no stamping was involved!!!
I painted and decorated my daughters room almost a year ago and I used these Definitely Decorative Flowers on her Bathroom and Closet doors that coordinate with the butterflies I have placed all over her room. I have been meaning to create a memo board for her to coordinate with her room and if I can do this ANYONE can do it, and what a cute little embellishment this would add to your office or child’s room!
I painted the wood frame of the cork/memo board first, since it came in a raw state. I used a celery color that would coordinate with not only her wall colors but the flower stems too. Then with my Definitely Decorative applicator I prepped the vinyl pieces by braying the grid side of the images first and then separated the two pieces of paper the images are house in between, making sure the vinyl adheres to the NON-GRID piece of paper (the sticky one).

Then I placed them where I wanted them and then ran over them evenly with my applicator to apply the flowers to the cork surface. Then using tension I made sure to remove the sticky paper piece used to apply the flowers being sure the flower adheres to the cork itself, if it doesn’t adhere initially press back down and using the applicator to brayer the image down again.

I love these colors of the flowers in case you can’t tell from the photo quality they are: Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, So Saffron, Certainly Celery. Someday if I can get my daughter to clean her room well I will have to take pics of it to show how well it turned out. :) Thanks for taking a moment to peak at my little project and DON’T FORGET to enter to win some BLOG CANDY, check it out here!!
