Life is Just a Bowl of Cherries

How true! And if you love cherries, like I do, you find that life is great.

I love our wood pieces with the silhouette cut-outs. They are fun to use with photos, embellishments or any added features. And this particular project was so simple and quick – again adding to the delight for the finished piece.

So, let’s get started. I misted the entire wood piece with Tattered Angels® Glimmer Mist Marmalade: http://mytatteredangels.com . No need to seal the wood first, just mist and wait for it to quickly dry.

Next I choose the letters from the Color Magic chipboard sticker letters by Heidi Swapp to spell the quote. Rather than misting the letters with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Trunk Bay, I gently shook the bottle from side to side to distribute the “glimmer” and brushed with letters with a medium flat brush.

Once the letters were dry, I peeled them off the sheet and placed them on the dry Silhouette wood piece. I added the name of the author of the quote – Bob Fosse – with  Tim Holtz® plastic sticker letters.

I found a fun embellishment from Jennifer Heynen and used a screw eye to hang it in the square opening.

Secure the screw eye in the square opening and tie the hanging cherries with a scrap of white ribbon.

So easy and so fun to make.
