Life's a Bowl of Cherries Shiplap Home Decor
March 06, 2023
Hello Craft Friends!
It's Dana here! I'm back with another Home Decor project for you! For this project today, I'm using Clear Scraps Cutting Board Shiplap shape small Click here and Clear Scraps Baking Chipboard Embellishment! Click here
The papers I chose are from Graphic45 "Life's a Bowl of Cherries " paper collection. I'll be inking all my papers and embellishments using Tim Holtz Distress Ink Gathered Twigs.
To begin our project, I took some Folkart Chalk Paint Parchment and painted the top handle area including along the sides. Let dry.
Next I chose 2 coordinating papers from the 8x8 pad and cut down to fit on each section of my Shiplap pallet. I inked my papers before gluing. I recommend using a strong bond glue like Beacon. Here's the paper measurements for each section:
Top: 6 3/8 x 2 & 1/2 inches
Middle: 6 1/4 x 2 5/8 inches
Bottom: 6 3/8 x 1 7/8 inches
Take you Chipboard Baking Embellishment piece and cut away the rolling pin from the frame. You can save the other embellishments for future projects. Using some Prima Ingrid Bergman Chalk Ink Knotted Wood and Pastel Brown, I applied the Chalk onto the chipboard handles and rolling pin.
Set aside to dry. After it has throughly dried, I adhered one of the diecut ticket sentiments to the center of my rolling pin. Then applied some foam dots to the back of my chipboard piece, before adhering onto the top section of my cutting board shape. Here's a closeup!
Now the fun part of choosing your embellishments! I used a variety of embellishments such as matching diecuts, and fussycut elements from the papers!
On the lower handle area on my cutting board, I glued this cute tiny cherry diecut. Below that, I cut out one of the Life is Sweet border pieces from the paper pad and adhered along the top edge using foam dots.
On the middle section on my cutting board, I glued a diecut sentiment in the center. Then fussycut acouple cherry embellishments and adhered in each corner.
Along the bottom section, I cut out two of the stamp pieces and glued one on each side. In the middle I adhered the bottle cap" Cherry Soda" in the center using foam dots. Here's a closeup!
To finish I took some jute cord and threaded it through the top hole on my cutting board. Then tie a knot on the end. I applied some Stickles Stardust glitter on some of the Cherry images along with Spectrum Noir Glossy Accents. This highlights and adds dimension to the cherries! I think this would be a cute decor piece to display in your kitchen!
