Vinyl on Scrapbook Paper and Wood



Here is the second one of the night :) (Has to be done inbetween soccer games, laundry, dinner, doggy walks, etc etc etc) I had a lot of fun this one.....No real plans for it when I bought the wood but then it just unfolded as I went along....

First I sanded and painted the wood white. I made sure to do a few coats. Then I extreme purple glittered all over the white paint (Love the extreme glitter paint!)

I can't take the credit for the next part...I was purusing some blogs and cam across Andreas Blog: http://andreascardsandscrap.blogspot.com/2010/05/vinyl-on-scrapbook-paper.html ....Her vinyl on scrapbook paper inspired me! I had bought some cute Recollections paper at Michaels and was just itching to put it to good use....So I mod podged the paper on top of the painted wood and let it dry....I decided since the paper was so pretty to keep it simple and cut the simple word inspire out with the Home Accents cartridge....I just love this so much I'm looking for a spot to hang it in my house...lol Of course it is another gift...

Good Night everyone!






Well, it's wedding time (ahhhhhh).....I've been busy making gifts for all of our wonderful friends that are helping us out at the wedding. Two of my good friends are cooking, a bridesmaid is making our cake, all of these great and wonderful people in our lives are making our day so special....In order to thank them I wanted to add a personal touch. So here's the first one! I love quotes, and one of my favorite gifts that I received is a wood painted plaque with a great Mother Theresa quote...I know God wouldn't give me anything I couldn't handle....I just wish he didn't trust me so much!
So I was in ....Michaels (yes again....sigh).....and found this wood plaque, and this is what I decided to do with it. First I sanded it down, and spray painted it with a metallic spray paint, called Canyon Brown (or something like that hhehehehe). After a few base quotes I sprayed this neat crackle top coat on it. I love this stuff! The only thing I will say is spray evenly and shake a lot fist.
After it dried I cut out black vinyl letters with the calligraphy cartridge from one of my favorite quoteist Carl Sundberg....Nothing happens unless first we dream....I decided to add a few embellishments and sealed with some mod podge....Over all I think it came out great! And now...I think I want one for me :) Hope everyone is doing well...I have a feeling I'll be posting a lot more soon....
