Moxxie Muses Spring Blog Hop

Welcome to the Moxxie Muses Spring Blog Hop. I am so excited to see flowers blooming and hear the birds singing - I am definitely glad that Spring is here! For my blog hop project, I used Moxxie's beautiful Faith line to make a cross. I love the colors of this line and have been wanting to make a pretty cross to hang on my craft room wall.

I purchased two wooden crosses and then sanded and painted the sides with cream colored acrylic paint. Next, I covered the crosses with paper from the Faith line. I used the b side of Salvation for the larger cross and the b side of Pray for the small cross. Then I die cut flowers from the b side of the Faith cutouts paper and the purple side of the Pray paper. I also punched petals from pink cardstock. I glued the two crosses together and added the flowers to the small cross. The final touch was to pop dot the praying hands sticker to the flower center.

I really like my finished cross and hope you do too! You will see lots of wonderful Spring projects on our blog hop. Thanks for stopping by and happy hopping!
