Hello everyone... Helen is here today. I’d like to share this fun Shaker Camera Wood Sign that I made using the new Wood Shapes Per 3 Pak and Mini Shaker Camera. These are supen fun new products! There are more at the store, too!
I love taking pictures with my camera, especially my family pictures. When I saw this Mini Shaker Camera chipboard embellishment, I want to use it on this project along with my favorite quote.
First, the base I used is one of the new Wood Shapes Per 3 Pak. I covered the wood with the marble patterned scrapbook paper. I traced the wood on the paper and then cut it with scissors. I added it on the wood with Beacon 3-in-1 adhesive glue.
I covered the top and bottom pieces of this shaker camera chipboard with white gesso and then silver metallic paint. I did it with my finger to get the random distressed look on the camera.
When the painted pieces dried, I stacked all the pieces using the Beacon 3-in-1 adhesive glue. When you work with shaker pieces, there is 2 pieces of clear plastic film on the protect the plastic piece ofthe shaker that you need to remove first before you add it on the chipboard. For the shaker filler, I used the mixed sequins I have in my stash. I put stackes of acrylic blocks to hold the pieces down while the glue drying.
I used my digital stamps on for the quote and frame. I edited them on my computer using the Pixlmator Pro software and then print it with Cannon inkjet printer. I colored the frame with Spectrum Noir Illustrator Alcohol Marker. I fussy cut it with scissors.
I added the sentiment and camera on the wood with the same adhesive glue. If you don’t have the Beacon 3-in-1 adhesive glue, make sure your glue is strong, permanent and works on all surefaces, including wood.
This sign is now up in my craft room to remind me that there is hope for another shot in this life. So, don’t give up!
Thank you so much for stopping by today. Come back again for more inspirations from the design team! Have wonderful day!
