Hello everyone and happy New Year! Hope you had a wonderful New Years! Jennifer here on the blog to share another project with you today! If you haven't had a chance to create with the new Shiplap Shapes, you must try them! I love that Clear Scraps offers small and large sizes in each shape! For my project, I used the Small Circle and Small Square Shiplap Shapes. And I'm going to show you the techniques I used!
Using a light blue chalk paint, I added a light coat to each of my Shiplap Shapes. I did not worry about having complete coverage and allowed the wood to show through.
Once my paint was dry, I used a tea light candle to rub wax across the surface of the wood. The rule is the more wax, the more distressed your end result will be.
I then applied white paint in small sections. Before allowing it to dry, I would scrape in one direction as shown.
Keep repeating until your entire Shiplap Shape is covered.
I set my Shiplap Shapes aside to dry and went to work on my Snowflake Mini Shaker Shape. I painted the top frame as well as the edges of the middle two frames and the chipboard base.
Using my circle punch, I added a patterned paper to the center of my shaker adhering with Beacon Adhesive. I then affixed my two center frames as shown.
Next, I added chunky glitter and glitter to the center of my shaker.
I then added the acrylic overlay and top frame; all using my Beacon Adhesive.
I then went on to assemble my Shiplap Wall Hanging. I layered patterned paper under my photo as well as added a coordinating chipboard frame.
Using my hole punch, I threaded ribbon through the two Shiplap Shapes to connect them. I did not have ribbon that was an exact match so I took white seam binding and used spray ink to color.
I added my Snowflake Mini Shaker to the bottom Square Shiplap Shape using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive.
