DIY Monogram Decor Art - Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

Welcome to the weekly Artisan Design Team Blog Hop!! Can you believe that the end of March is here?!

This week I had a vision for my project. I had the idea, dreamed about how it would come together and had it virtually built ... inside my brain. I was fixed on using the Hello Life Project Kit. When I started to make my plan a reality I started strong! Everything was working out the way that I had planned. Half way through I just was not feeling it, like it was missing something. I played and played late into the night. This is what was born ... my DIY Monogram Decor Frame.

I thought I should share with you the DIY part ... First, the rack you see comes with the Project Kit!!! So awesome, right?! It comes a black color and measures 14" x 17". I used spray paint to change it up. When you get the kit the rack is packaged with two heavy weight cardboard sheets. Do not toss those in the recycling! I used these to create the frame and monogram letter that you see!

This kit is bursting with elements for you to jazz up the frame. I did not even put a dent into the kit with the heart banner and chevron background paper that you see.

I did add a couple of supplies to personalize this decor frame. The Whisper White Bakers Twine, a sheet of Chalkboard Paper and the Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim. I have long been a fan on inspirational quotes and could not resist adding one with the Chalk Marker. I had a "real" piece of chalk (from the build a banner kit), and used that to rub the chalkboard paper.

Working with my monogram letter was a bit tough! If I had to do it again I would cut another letter K with Bermuda Bay cardstock and fasten that to the cardboard before I started with the sequin trim. That way, if a wee bit was peeking out between sequins it would not be so obvious.

So what do you think?? It is not exactly as I had dreamed - but I think it came together! A part of me thinks it needs a bit more "something".
