Peg it up!

Hi all

How are your weeks going so far?

Something a bit different from me for you today.  I bought some Dolly Pegs a while ago after seeing some decorated in a very nice local shop and could not think how would be best to decorate them after my attempts of painting and dotting didn’t work very well!

Anyway, in one of those lightening moments I came up with the idea of colouring them with the Stampin’ Write Markers rather than painting them.  Once I’d done this I wanted to protect the colours so added a bit of Crystal Effects to seal it.  To be honest I wasn’t all that happy with the line where the colour stopped and wanted to cover it, after sitting thinking about it for a while I thought of the fabulous Gingham Garden Designer Washi Tape (Eureka!) I added this to the pegs and this was the result….
