I've been crafty today. I can't wait to show you!
I started with these supplies:
Do you see my new BFF, Gorilla Glue?! Seriously, that stuff is amazing!
The Rust-oleum Metallic spray was supposed to dry into a hammered copper finish. It IS copper but not hammered. I think the humidity or temp was wrong or maybe I applied too much or not enough. Whatever. It's still pretty!
I had my sweet hubby cut out the molding to frame my sheet metal and then I spray painted everything.
While I waited for everything to dry, I gathered these supplies:
and made these:
I opted not to use the gold paint pen. It just didn't pop like I wanted. I used a simple black Sharpie instead. Yea for Sharpies!! I actually free-handed the letters. I'm no Shannan but I'm kinda proud of them.
I sealed the board with matte acrylic sealer. I also learned that matte acrylic sealer doesn't like Sharpies so I didn't seal the magnets. Then it was time for the real fun...the decorating! I just used some scrapbooking supplies I had on hand and robbed a flower from one of my fall arrangements. And of course I used my trusty friend, the hot glue gun, that I've had since college. Ah, hot glue gun, please don't be jealous of my new love, Gorilla Glue.
What is it with me and adhesives?
