Good Day my BEAUTIES!
I know I kind of mixed it up this week by doing a furniture post on Monday and
a Craft post on Wednesday, but I was putting the finishing touches on this latest craft
and wanted it to be just right for you.
I got to try out the NEW AMERICANA Decor Chalky Finish paint and was
itching to try it out.
I was wracking my brain on what I wanted to use it on when I remembered a bunch
of craft boards a friend had me rescue from her garage.
Once I saw it the first thing I thought of was EGG...and with EGG I thought EASTER...
so I got to work.
I grabbed my Americana Decor paint and mixed up a little custom paint.
I wanted a slight pink..not to much..so I didn't mix all the way.
I wanted it to look blended on the board.. I used the colors Camel and Lace.
I loved that it was PINK but not TOO pink.
When the paint was dry I used Americanas French script stencil for my background.
I used my stencil brush and the LACE chalky finish paint to stencil on my script.
I was in love already and was loving how the paint was working all together.
This is where it gets even more fun. I used my Silhouette to
cut out a BUNNY shape (you could also use carbon paper and a bunny picture and simply
transfer on and paint a bunny)
I used Americanas Chalky finish "NEW LIFE" to stencil on the bunny
and the french words "JOYEUSES PAQUES" which in french means
I thought it went perfect with the french script stencil.
to finish it off, I paired it with my little ceramic Bunny Family that my
Momma passed on down to me...
I loved looking at them every Easter on the mantle (even thought the big one wearing the guitar was one I found thrifting so it matched my 4 kids)
and now my kids get to grow up seeing it on my mantle....THAT IS...if they or I don't break it..
But I figure if it made it through me and my 14 siblings....
IT SHOULD in theory...make it here!
I hope you enjoyed the fun EASTER craft..(I can't believe for once I actually have a season up early)
and until next time...
Make someones day BEAUTIFUL!
