Every Moment Matters with Clear Scraps
April 15, 2020
Hello friends! It's Jennifer here today to share a home decor project I created using some fun Clear Scraps wood products! It's officially springtime so I started with the Flower Medium DIY Pallet Shape as my base. And I'm going to show you how I decorated my pallet.
I selected my background paper and measured each "slat" of the Flower. I applied Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive to the front the pallet and adhered the patterned paper.
I cut away excess paper with scissors followed by using an x-acto knife and healing mat to trim around the edges. I also used sand paper to smooth the seams between the paper and pallet.
Using a foam applicator, I painted the edges of the pallet with white acrylic paint not worrying about having clean lines.
Next, I painted the Every Moment Matters XL Script Wood Quote with chalk paint in green. Again, I did not worry about covering ever surface of the wood.
I then applied wax to the front of the Wood Quote using a tea light candle (however you can use any candle in your stash). The more wax you apply, the more distressed your effect will be.
I then applied white paint in small sections, scrapping the excess off as I went. You can also use sand paper to smooth any areas you weren't happy with. I affixed my Wood Quote using Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive.
I used stickers and chipboard embellishments as accents. I also utilized my hand punches to add additional butterflies.
To finish, I used my hole punch at each side to thread ribbon though to hang my project!
Thanks for stopping by the blog today! Hope this inspires you to do some spring home decor projects with Clear Scraps! Have a great day!
