            I created this 'Celebration Garden Block' for the 'Anything Goes' competition at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog.  If you would like to play along you can find them HERE.

 It measures about 4" x  6" and is 2" deep.  Finished height is about 7".   All the patriotic images came from clip art on the internet.  The flowers are from my stash.  Original designer is unknown.


            I began by cutting up a  2" x  4"  into  6" lengths.  All the edges were painted with white acrylic paint and coated with mod podge for some shine.  The drilled holes are to support the flag and the flowers.  They are mounted on wrapped floral wire.

The sides of the block are covered with papers from a digital kit called '4th July' designed by Little Panda Digitals on Etsy.

Here's the back.  I painted the little wooden balls with red acrylic paint and coated with Mod Podge.

...and there you have it.  Thanks for stopping by...
