Clear Scraps Wood Rectangles -- Embrace the Journey Decor
March 10, 2021
Hi there everyone!!! Laura here with you today, to share some home decor inspiration
with this project created using the versatile Clear Scraps Wood Rectangle as a base.
It's bright, cheerful, and a reminder that we all have our own unique journey,
(even more so right now!) and we should embrace it, and try to find a reason to
celebrate or be grateful everyday!
Now I am a huge fan of a "blank canvas" so to speak, like these Wood Rectangles.
These come in a 3 pack in the Clear Scraps store, so they are not only a great item
to create with, but they are a great value as well! Ink them, paint them, stain them,
cover them with pretty paper, or you could even just leave them plain wood. For
this project, I used blue, white and gray acrylic paint. I painted most of the piece
blue, but didn't cover it all. I came back in to fill those spots with streaks of white
and gray. I wanted it to feel like a pretty springtime sky.
Next I layered in the bricks! The 4x6 Brick Wall stencil from Clear Scraps is a fave!
It's perfect for backgrounds, and if you use a texture paste and a little ink on there once
it dries (like I did here), it gives such a great texture. I also just scraped some paste
randomly around the edges to frame it off. With the stencil, you could also trace it,
or use paint or sprays or inks as well. A lot of great possibilities to get creative!
While the base dried, I painted the cute little Fence Chipboard Embellishments.
I used gray acrylic paint, and then brushed on white to give it a little more of a weathered
fence look. Love all the options of chipboard embellishments from Clear Scraps!
A few layered cardstock embellishments and stickers, and I've got a great piece of
inspirational decor to hang in my home office, craft room, or wherever!!
Thanks for stopping by today!
