While I haven't lived in Michigan since 5th grade, I still call it home. Living in eight states thus far, I recognize Michigan as where any roots are planted and I decided to demonstrate that by stepping out of my papercrafting world to try something new. I had acquired a canvas from a MOPS craft and decided to mod podge piece of torn paper in the background. I love using up scrapbooking paper that has been sitting around awhile! You can find the Pocketful of Posies pack on sale right now in the Clearance Rack! I then printed an image of Michigan off the computer, cut it out, traced it, and painted inside the lines with gray acrylic paint. Then I used (retired SU) chipboard letters, painted them on the front, and ran my Cherry Cobbler marker around the edges, which can be seen when looking it the canvas from an angle. The button was added with some Baker's Twine to pinpoint my birthplace of Dearborn, a suburb of Detroit. An easy craft for those who might want to show some craft love for their home state!
