how to roygbiv

I got my kitchen all painted and decorated enough to call it quits and work on something else (i.e. i can’t figure out how i want all the excess space above my cupboards so i give up at the moment. )
so I thought i would give you a tour…but first i wanted to post the tutorials for some of my projects:

first up is the Roygbiv challenge from sYtyC. (i won that week so the tutorial was posted over there)

It’s super fast and easy and it’s so bright and colorful!

the instructions…
i created this printable on picnik (but you can do the same basic thing on picmonkey) you just upload any picture and make the exposure all the way until you get a white screen…now you can write your favorite quote or whatever tickles your fancy…

IF you want this specific one i have it for sale in my etsy shop HERE

i uploaded it at staples.com and got it the next day!!!
(but you can print an 8 by 10 at walmart for less than 3 dollars and slap it in a pretty frame!)

i took a big piece of styrofoam…and cut it to size..

and went to joanns and bought all the bright fun fabric i could find cause i just wasn’t sure which one i liked…

i decided to go with the blue green strips..I cut into strips to fit around the sides of the Styrofoam…

and then just hot glue it around…

try to make it as smooth as possible! (covering the sides will also help if the sides are not even from cutting it!)

I took my print

spray adhesived it and laid it on my styrofoam…

and smoothed it out! i didn’t want to mod podge the front cause i don’t have a good track record with it… for some reason it hates me….and bubbles up. and i’ve decided it’s not a friendship that i’m going to try to keep…
i added a dischanger to the back with hot glue to hang the sucker up!

i have a tutorial HERE for these fun hearts

now instead of styrofoam you could use dry wall boards…elmer’s foam core board…or just plain old wood…whatever you have lying around!
if you love rainbows make sure you check out my rainbow shoutouts
and at the beginning of this blog i showed a placemat purse that i made rainbow one with buttons:
which is why the picture blows.
