Frosted Designs Blog Hop!

I am glad you have hopped over to my blog in the Frosted Designs July Blog Hop!  This is the third blog hop of Frosted Designs this summer.  I hope you have enjoyed it so far.  You should have come from Tamara's blog.  If you have joined us in the middle of the hop, make sure you start at the Frosted Designs blog.  There are great projects on each of the seven designer's blog's and chances to win prizes along the way.

We have two awesome sponsors for this blog hop.  The first is sponsor is Artful Delight.  

Our second sponsor is Words or Whatever.

There are prizes to be won from each of our sponsors!  Plus the prizes from individual designers.  

Here are the rules to the hop:

1.  You need to hop to every blog on the list.  
2.  Leave a comment on the Frosted Designs blog telling them you did.
3.  Complete a "Quote Project"and link it up to the inlinkz on the Frosted Designs blog on the blog hop post.  Your project must contain this quote in its entirety:

"It is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all." 
Laura Ingalls Wilder

The hop begins July 26 and runs through July 31 11:59pm central standard time.  The winners will be announced on August 1 on the Frosted Designs blog.

For this hop, I have used the quote to make a canvas wall hanging.  I started by covering my canvas with dress pattern paper.  You could use tissue paper and achieve the same look.  I love the way it gives my canvas a texture as a base.  Next I used a couple colors of yellow paint and some white splatters.  I cut my flowers from patterned paper and added pearls to the centers.  Since the quote was a long one and I don't own a machine to cut out letters/sayings.....shocking I know!.......I used a few different styles of alphabet letters.  I really like the way it turned out.

If you have just stopped by my blog and not on the hop, you can start at the Frosted Designs blog to make sure you don't miss anything!  :)
