CWTS Round 2 {My project revealed}

Thanks again to everyone that voted.  I hope that your vote was for me, but if it wasn't, that's ok.  I guess I can forgive you....this time.  :)  I made it to round 3!!!

Now, for the moment you've all been waiting for.  This round, my project was the......

Decoupaged Kitchen Back Splash

(In case you didn't get a chance to read about my project on Sew Dang Cute's blog, here it is again.)

This week's challenge was a tough one.  Coming up with a decoupage project that hasn't been done a million times over on every craft blog seemed daunting.  I had a lot of fun with this project though, and am pleased with the results.

Using scrapbook paper, art tape and mod podge, I was able to create a functional and affordable back splash.

For those of you that are wondering about durability, a couple coats of sealant solve any moisture problems.

I love the color and warmth this adds to my kitchen and I may just be cooking a little more often.

What do you think?  Did you guess correctly? 

I would be more than happy to do a tutorial on this if anyone is interested.  If not, just enjoy these beautiful pictures.  I know I love it.  Every time I walk around the corner into my kitchen, it's like a fun surprise to see all the color.  It's almost like my kitchen is saying, "come on, let's have some fun cooking!" 
Pin It!

I just had to drop in to say, "Congratulations!" I absolutely loved your initial entry, and even though I had entered the competition and wasn't chosen, I was so happy that you were one of the finalists. I also have to say that I guessed this project belonged to you. I can't wait to see what else you do.
