Hello friends! It's Jennifer here on the blog to share a patriotic 4th of July home decor project I created using some fabulous Clear Scraps products! And I'm going to walk you through the techniques I used!
Starting with the Square Medium DIY Pallet Shape, I painted the front with two coats of chalk paint in red. Just about any type of paint will use but chalk is my favorite as it dries quickly and looks nice with the birch wood.
Once my paint was dry I was ready to use my Mascil. Using a spatula and the 6 Inch Fireworks Splash Mascil, I applied gold metallic texture paste to the front of my pallet. Since the Mascil doesn't quite fit the entire pallet, I allowed each area to dry before re-applying my stencil.
I set aside my pallet to dry to work on the Multi Stars Chipboard Embellishment Shapes! I painted each one with white chalk paint followed by adding embossing ink + powder to accent.
Here is a close up shot of the stars! I ended up only using three of the four from the set. I love how they look next to the gold metallic!
I added a favorite photo from a past holiday along with patterned paper as well as some cute bakers twine.
I used my Big Bite to punch holes in the top of my pallet to string this cute plaid red, white, and blue ribbon through to hang my creation!
Thanks for stopping by the blog today! Hope this inspires you to create with Clear Scraps today! Have a wonderful day!
