Back with something a bit different this time :) I've been painting and distressing some small pieces of furniture for a craft show and have also been making a few wooden signs along the way. I recently painted a Captain Hook/Key hook wooden board (here) and so wanted to try something similar. The current challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and Show is 'into the woods' so I took this very literally! I took 3 pieces of pallet wood and sanded and stained them, joining them on the back with 2 cross pieces. I then painted a patch of white paint in one corner, ready for the image transfer.
I used the Mod Podge transfer method - see tutorial here or google for a whole ton of others! I used a Kenny K digi (Paige Parasol) and printed her with my laser printer and then applied her to the wood. I left her to sit overnight and after I had removed all the paper, leaving the image behind, I coloured her with my Faber Castell Artist Big brush pens, following the colours for the current challenge at Kenny K's Krafy Krew. I drew in the letters using Sharpie Paint Pens after printing and tracing them onto the wood using carbon paper. I then added another vintage hook from my collection to make it useful wall art :)
I would like to enter this into the challenges at Simon Says Stamp and Show, Kenny K's Krafty Krew, Simon Says Stamp and linking up to Between Naps on the Porch and Elizabeth and Co.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
