This rug is the reason I took a day off from blogging. It was due on Wednesday morning. I worked on it all day Tuesday. I even took to Lea's house (where our knitting group meets) because I had to get it done.
♥For Rug-Burlap, 4 Skeins of Vanna's Choice Yarn.
♥Frame- 2 18" Canvas Stretchers, 2 24" Canvas Stretchers, Martha Stewart Fine Glitter in Fire Opal, Matte Mod Podge.
♥Over 20 hours!
I love the finished project, but never thought it would be as time consuming as it was. I have a new respect for any crafters that attempt punching rugs. My back hurt for days!
I had painted the frame with gold acrylic paint first and I hated it. It just didn't pop. It wasn't metallic enough. I was watching Martha one day; they were coating shoes with glitter and they looked amazing! Inspired, I used the same technique to finish the frame and I adore it. Glitter makes me insanely happy.
I'm so relieved that it's finished. I can focus on my bird mask again. Matter of fact, I'm going to nestle into the couch, watch project runway and cut out crepe paper feathers.
