Handmade Holiday's Blog hop

             
 Welcome to the 3rd annual Handmade Holiday’s Blog Hop! Aren’t handmade gifts the best? 
As part of the Ice Resin design team, I was asked to participate in this blog hop. I received some fun items from Walnut Hollow and Clearsnap to work with, as well as Ice Resin. Let’s jump in!
 I started with the wooden bistro sign which I lightly sanded and applied a light coat of acrylic paint. 

 
 Next I moved on to the Magic stamp. Using a heat gun and block of wood I created a wood grain stamp that I transferred to the bistro sign. The grain was then laid over the pre painted board using the Surfacez Caribbean ink. After this step, I applied torn tissue paper with decoupage for a light, transparent texture.
 
The lettering was also done using theSurfacez ink.
Next, the ampersand was painted and text applied, followed by smalll tack nails to attach. Lastly, a top coat of Ice Resin was applied to seal the deal!
  

Hope your Holidays are creative ones!
Peace, Jomama

Hop along and check out what my creative friends are up to~

  2. The way you applied the wood grain was terrific. I've used that medium to stamp plants and flowers and even a wreath of tiny shells but never thought of wood grain. It is a great project and thanks for the great instructions.
