My Craft Room Plaque

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

A quick post this morning as off to visit with my parents today!

I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Sharing with you my new plaque which I made for the event over at Chic Craftique.

MDF plaque from Anna Marie Designs
I first gave it a coat of black paint and set to one side to dry.
I painted the lettering in black acrylic paint and left to dry, once dry I adhered to the plaque.
I then added the key, metal butterfly, flowers and clay leaves and butterflies. I then gave it another coat of black paint.
I then dry brushed Imagination Crafts Blue Metal paint over the base and on all embellishments except for the word.
I dry brushed Imagination Crafts Starlight Antique Gold paint on the words.

It now resides on the door of my craft room.

Hi Sylvia, yes dry brush means using no water, you work the paint into the brush and lightly sweep over your project and the paint adheres to where you have brushed.
