It's time to decorate for 4th of July and I always like to display a little something cute on the top of my piano (really it's to keep the cats from laying there). I picked up these 4" pre-printed canvas blocks at Michaels, along with some Joy 3" Varsity Block Letters.
Using antiquing cream on the surface gave the blocks the aged look I wanted, then I added a the Metallic Lustre using a sponge for highlights.
Each block was decorated with a variety of bits and pieces to give them some visual interest. The chipboards were inked with VersaMagic and then I added highlights with a white pen.
TIP: Did you know that if you have little "strings" from your hot glue on your project that giving them a little shot with a heat gun melts them away?
