August Subway Art Table Runner

Good Monday Morning ! Today is the first day of school for my youngest .. He is a sophomore this year , and I can't believe I forgot to take that first day of school photo ! I will have to take one tomorrow ..
I finally got around to making a summer themed ( just for August ) subway art table runner. I used a few colors of yellow, grey, black and white paints..
Wish I would have had some sunflowers for the mason jar, but mine in the garden are all finished I used black eyed susans, and yellow zinnias..

I use my big foam stamps that I bought for scrapbooking a few years ago, for most of the words and then I freehand paint and use fabric paint for the rest. I also sprinkled some glitter in places on the wet paint.

For the ruffle I used black and white check, and then the yellow used to be my kitchen window treatments. I knew there would be a good use for that fabric someday :) It is hard to get a good photo of the ruffle since we have a round table.. Makes it look uneven .


I also put my black white check and burlap decomesh wreath back up .. I think I will add some sunflowers with the daisies in the wreath to make it more end of summerish..
Pretty soon it will be time to decorate for Fall .. ( can't wait !)

Hope you have a great day ! I will be back tomorrow or Wednesday with my crochet update.. I finished the granny ripple and started another big flower blanket !
 Thanks for stopping by and your nice comments !
