Hi there! Laura here sharing a post with you today!
I've got a project using one something that is one of my
favorite items from Clear Scraps, the
LOVE these things! You can ink them, paint, stain,
stamp, whatever your "heart" desires! And with all
the shapes to choose from, you can easily find one
to fit any project you'd like to make. You can find them
all in the store right HERE.
For this project, I chose the Heart Medium DIY Pallet shape.
I decided to use paper to cover it, so I traced it
onto the paper, and added little marks where the slats are,
then cut out around the heart, and used a trimmer
to cut the pieces to fit the slats.
I inked all the edges, and then glued them onto
the pallet using Beacon Adhesive.
Next up, I added one of the XL Script Wood Quotes.
The "I Love Us" quote was perfect for my project
since it's all about family!
It's painted with gray acrylic paint, and then I went
over the gray with white acrylic paint in a dauber
bottle to give it a little more texture.
To finish it off I added some pearls.
Before I glued the Script Word down,
I decorated the upper right corner of the heart,
using a 3x4" journal card and a few stickers.
I thought the saying was a great reminder for the new
year, that not everything is perfect all the time,
but the joy is in the journey your family is on
together, building their very own story.
These moments and memories are why "I LOVE Us"!
Thanks for stopping by today!
Hope you are inspired to try creating
one of these pallets. They make great inspiration
to keep on your desk, or hang on a wall, or they
make great gifts for family and friends.
