Exploring Cricut Daily Project

Welcome to the Tuesday daily project at Exploring Cricut. Today I used the Art Deco cartridge. I have to admit, I bought this cartridge for under $10 on ebay and when it came I thought what would I use it for. I decided to make a decoration for my craft room. I love how it turned out. I think I can find other uses for this cartridge and love the font!  Below are pictures of the piece before I did anything and my measurements.
I base painted it a beige color in the making memories paints that I had in my stash that needed to be used up!  The color went on good and only took two coats.

This is how it looked before I got started. It was just a wood piece called canvas I got at Walmart for around $5.00. I think it is a 10 x 10 or what the paper said, but was not exact.  Below are the materials and cuts.  I modge podged this on.
