I haven't done a Work It Wednesday post for a very long time. So without further delay, here's today's post....
At the last crop I showed a quick way you can use a wooden block to make a stamp. It's just a fun way to add a personal and artsy twist to your designs, and perhaps, will be a topic for another day on the blog. However, as I was looking at my supplies the other day, that wooden block was calling out for some love. If you have a wooden block on hand (you can buy them at Judy's if you don't) here's a quick little project for you.
First, gather your supplies:
block of wood, a photo, paint, paint brush, decoupage, rub-ons (optional), paper trimmer, sand paper (optional)
Step 1: Paint the edges of your wooden block and a slight little bit around the edges on the front surface. Let dry.
Step 2: Trim photo to the size of your block and set aside.
Step 3: Add coat of decoupage to wood surface. You want to spread the decoupage out evenly and avoid puddles or excessive amounts.
Step 4: While decoupage is still wet, add photo and smooth out. Let dry.
Step 5: Finish as you wish. I added rub-ons and used sand paper to distress the edges.
The end result will look something like this:
There you have it. Enjoy!
P.S. Check back tomorrow for some SALE information at Judy's!
