I have been in the frame of mind lately of wanting to alter things. So, for this little project, I decided to alter a piece of wood I got at Michaels. The back of the wood measures about 6 3/4” and it tapers off to about 5” at the front of the wood.
I sanded and painted the whole piece pink. I cut a piece of Recollections Chalkboard paper and glued it on the front. I used the Scotch brand liquid adhesive. I wanted it to stick and stay. I find it is one of the better brands to use with paper. I used a piece of Spring garland around the edges. I hot glued it down in a few different places so it would still have some movement.
The flowers are all from the Los Angeles Fashion District. I took a trip down there recently and had such a good time! There are so many crafting goodies!….Not to mention all the other great stuff! The large flowers were originally much more white. I added a bit of the pink paint that I used on the plaque so they would match better. The medium white flowers are part porcelain and part rolled ribbon. They are sooooooo dreamy! Then I popped a few small white mulberry roses in to fill out the flower layout.
I still needed a way to hang it. I found some ribbon that I like. It’s kinda shabby chic. I hot glued the ribbon to the back. Then I cut a piece of really thick black cardstock and glued that to the back and on top of the ribbon. Now it is all set to go and write small messages on . TFL!
