Oh did you miss me and my craftiness? I know you did. :)
So this is not about what I mentioned in my previous post. I am not ready for that just yet. I am showing you this really cute and easy project I found over at Joys of Home. I have been so excited about this and finally got the time to do it.
First go and get a wooded plaque. You can get one at Hobby Lobby, depending on the size, determines the price.
Today we are going to work on the one on the left. Get some spray paint, in whatever color you choose. I chose black. I have just got started in my black phase, so bear with all the blackness you may see coming up. :)
Oops! Sorry I forgot to get a picture of it after I painted it.
Now take some scrapbook paper. Again whatever kind floats your boat. I chose this nice harlequin pattern. I have it left over from yet another project I did, which you will see later. That craft room is just bringing out the craftiness.
Now I took spray adhesive and sprayed on the plaque.
Then I lined up the scrapbook paper on the plaque the way I wanted it.
Then I let that dry for just a bit.
Once it was relatively dry, I took some fine sandpaper and sanded where the paper and plaque met. This sands the overhang of the paper off the plaque.
Sorry I don't have pictures of all those steps. I forgot to do that, but this is what it will look like next.
(pay no attention to the bubble)
I added a thin layer of Modge-Podge on top of the scrapbook paper.
Next I took the letter "M".
I painted it a coordinating gold color. When it dried, I hotglued it to the plaque.
I now have a cute little plaque with our initial on it. :)
Hmmm that "M' matches the wall pretty well. I wonder where I got that gold paint I used? ;)
