vintage feel to them....love that "country" style. This project
takes a $1 sign from the dollar store, and makes it into a
piece of vintage Americana decor.
The piece started like this:
I started inking it with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
The entire surface was covered. Next step:
and trimmed it to fit, to get this:
more of the Vintage Photo Ink, and then painting
the entire piece with Rock Candy Crackle paint.
After it dried, I used more Distress Ink....this time
I dabbed on some of the Walnut Stain to leave this
A few pieces of the Rock Candy flaked off to give it
a true "vintage" feel....LOVE the way it turned out!
I did finish it off with a coat of spray sealer to make
sure everything stayed put.
Inspired to make a little "Vintage Americana" of your own?
I hope so.....it's fun home dec summer project!
And like the tissue tape? Kim can order this in for you....
and she carries the awesome tissue tape dispensers in
store....they make the "trim to fit" so much easier!!
