Winner/ 3-D apple art

Thanks everyone for entering. Our first give-way winner is Jen. Congrats!!! Please e-mail me lilbirdz1@yahoo.com to claim your prize.

By the way, I've had a few questions on what it means to "follow" a blog. Pretty much the same as "liking" something on facebook. You won't get any e-mails or be contacted in anyway. It's just a way of saying, "I think this is a fun blog". So if you think this is a fun blog, please become a "follower".

So I loved the above idea. Find the link here
I thought it would be cool to make one of my own. First, I thought I'd do something for St. Patty's, but then I decided to make an apple for my kitchen.

Step 1: Find a bunch of small objects. I mostly used a bunch of assorted buttons. Then I Sprayed painted them w/ my oil-rubbed bronze (man am I getting my money's worth out of that can). Tip: Spray paint objects in a box it cuts down on the over spray.

I used a piece of fabric and wrapped it around a piece of 8x10 cardboard. Then I cut out a piece of card stock in the shape of an apple to use as a guide. And then hot glued all my little goodies on the fabric.

After comparing mine to the original, I think I like the original better. I may re-do it w/ fatter objects. Also, I just noticed that my stem is a little long and it looks more like a cherry than an apple. Stay tuned.
