I love my home state of Georgia!
It's like an old sweet song.
So, it's always fun to create state pride projects, like this one.

My son put together a pallet style board and I stained it with VooDoo Gel Stain in the color Tobacco Road. I love this stain from the Dixie Belle Paint Company because it's water based which makes for easy clean up.

I cut strips of fabric in different colors and patterns...

I applied the fabric to the wood with ModPodge and used a hotel key card to smoothe out the wrinkles...

Then I added a little more of the stain t the edges of the fabric...

I painted a bead board cutout of Georgia with the color, Gravel Road, then added a little whitewash glaze, and glued it to the board using E6000...

I bought a balsa wood Home from Michael's, painted it with the color Mermaid Tail, and glued it to the board...

a song of you
comes as sweet and clear
as moonlight through the pines.
