12/12/21 Rising Star at A Place To Start!
Hey, everybody! So hard to believe that we’re a little over a week into December already! This year has literally flown by and it won’t be too much longer before the jolly round man will make his appearance! I’m thrilled to be back on the Clear Scraps blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! Even though we’re almost officially into Winter, I’m squeezing in one more Summer-themed project! This home decor piece features our Medium Heart DIY Pallet Shape embellished with our Sand Dollar Chipboard Embellishments and Fan Shells Chipboard Embellishments along with a few other supplies! Can’t tell you how much I enjoyed creating this! ;)
I started by painting the front and back of the Medium Heart DIY Pallet Shape with Glacier chalk paint. Then I moved on to the Sand Dollar Chipboard Embellishments and Fan Shells Chipboard Embellishments, and painted them with Prominent Pink, Tuscan Red and Oatmeal chalk paint, all mixed separately with Farmhouse White Ash paint to get the desired colors for the individual shells. Then I adhered various shades of pink cardstock behind the shells and inked the edges with antique linen distress ink. I die cut the twisted rope background and adhered it at an angle to the heart pallet. I attached the shells, one by one, to the heart pallet and then added three pieces of sea glass (not sure if it’s real or faux but it works!) that I inked with tumbled glass distress ink. I die cut the letters needed for the sentiment, adhered them in the upper left corner, and then added dark blue gemstones to finish the piece.
And one more look… super happy with how this turned out and I can’t wait to share it! I absolutely LOVE it when a project turns out exactly the way I envisioned it! ;)
