Hey folks, it’s been a while. Lots of work and hardly any play 😖
Today I’m sharing my first attempt at string art. This one comes with a story …
A childhood friend of mine had a baby many years ago. When the baby was born I hand painted a wooden name plaque. It turns out that they’ve held onto the gift all these years ❤️ Her baby is now 15 years old! She contacted me and requested a new updated name plaque for his birthday. I was beyond honored to fulfill such a beautiful request.
Below is the original wooden name plaque. Clearly has 15 years of use on it.
Below is the new name plaque I created. Staying in tune with the original it has that hand painted feel to it. I had recently become obsessed with string art videos and thought I’d take a crack at it. The plaque is a bare wood display from Hobby Lobby. Use the 40% coupon! I used Varathane Wood Stain in the color Kona.
Below is a progress photo. I printed the name on a sheet of copy paper and nailed right through it. In retrospect I wish I HADN’T done that. After tearing the sheet off I sat there with tweezers trying to pull little specks of white paper that was caught under the nail 😣 super aggravating. Avoid doing that!
Hope you enjoyed this project! I’ve got two other posts coming soon! Muahhh 💋
It’s Super Bowl Sunday!!! … and I’m bringing you another Babyshower Guestbook LOL. Last time I showed you a Girl’s book so today I have a Boy’s book. I love this one! I love the paper and embellishments I used. It looks cleaner cut and straight lined. I love that look.
The actual invitation that was sent out to guests; inside front cover
I hope you enjoyed!!! I still have another boy and a unisex babyshower guestbook to show you, but in due time. GO SEAHAWKS!!! 😉
It’s Saturday! Woo hoo!!! And I’m happy for it.
Today I’m taking you guys back. I made a few cards for my boyfriend’s coworkers this past holiday season. I couldn’t get around to making more for the rest of our families, though 😦
