Design Team Projects :: Nesting

Good Morning, my friends! I'm so excited to share the first part of this month's design team projects. Back by popular demand are one of our most popular set of letters - the "NeST" letters.

Bonnierose was undecided on how she wanted to decorate hers. Her initial thought was to stay very simple and just paint them (nothing wrong with simple). Then inspiration hit! Don't you love that?!
Here's how she created the look!
I first lightly painted the letters with white paint, then adhered dictionary papers with Mod Podge. Mod Podged over to seal then lightly brushed more paint and finished off with green and blue bows.
You see, hubby and I are gonna be moving down south, that's the 5 year plan anyways... and one day... we want our home to be a beachy theme... so I did these using blue/seafoam green ribbons.
And here's a few more details....
Beautiful Bonnierose! I love the shabby look!

Dawn's are so beautiful and have such soft colors and a natural-ness to them (I know that's not a word, ha ha!) And then she outlined them with Glass Glitter.

Look at the gorgeous papers too!

The sweet bird and branches.

The "N" has a felt flower that she made (you can see a better picture on her blog post HERE).

Love these branches.

And now for a totally different look (isn't this fun?!) Julie Ann has an eclectic mix of papers and embellishments creating a fabulous design!

And LOOK, she outlined the letters with feathers!! I think they really soften the whole look.

And some closeup details...

Gorgeous, gorgeous! I love all the sayings and details. You should also visit her blog for some really inspiring pictures from Shimelle's class, Journaling Your Christmas. Love this idea!!

Michelle's pretty flowery mix is really sweet. I love the pinks and blues and those bows. :)

Winter . Spring . Summer . Fall I really like how Stephanie went with a four seasons design.

Awesome job, ladies!! I love seeing the new designs and love what you created with them!
As always, thanks everyone for checking in.
