I am sharing my very first project on my blog...anxiety mixed with excitement!
Last week I met my good friend, Kari, to go Goodwill Hunting. We made lots of stops, and I spent a whopping $22 on the following items:
$2 (Scrabble & bowl)
$11 (All kinds of fun stuff!)
Of course, I had to do some photo editing, too, since photography is my dream. This is my find "vintage" style. I like!
Now for the project process:
First, I washed the cheese plate and dome.
Next, I painted the wooden plate. I didn't want to go to the store to buy flat black paint, so I used satin.
The black was a little too shiney so I sanded it to reveal some of the wooden plate.
Now, I could let the podging begin! I found some paper in my stash, measured the diameter of the plate, then cut out a perfectly sized circle on my Cricut. I used Mod Podge to adhere it to the plate, inked the edges of the paper so it didn't look so "new," then added a ribbon on the dome.
I thought the moss stones I bought at a dollar store for, you guessed it, $1, would look good under the dome, but they really didn't float my boat.
So, I looked around the house and found some shells....yes...shells always work, plus they remind me of the beach, which is where I long to be....doing photography....sigh....
What do you think?
Remember, be kind...I'm a virgin crafter and wanna be blogger.
