Pour me a cup

The inspiration for today's plaque came from something I saw while browsing Pinterest. When I went in search of the picture so I could give you the source I couldn't find it. Any way, after seeing this picture I pulled out a book page and roughly drew a coffee cup. Then I went over the pencil marks with a black sharpie and finished it by coloring it with colored pencils.

I painted the plaque brown then sanded the edges to reveal some of the bare wood. I glued on two different scrapbook papers for the background then glued on my cup and words that I had printed from my computer. The steam coming off the cup is a piece of wire. I can't remember if the source picture used wire or if that just had the steam drawn in that shape..

Tomorrow you get the 5th and final plaque. After that I'm in trouble cuz I have no idea what else to blog about. Guess I better start getting crafty again

  2. Such good advice, that's the trouble with life now, there's so much out there to distract you that sometimes there is too much going on.

  5. Oh I like this - and the edging on most of the words helps them look more integrated.
