Hello everyone!! I'm back crafty friends & this month I am working with the newly released paper collection from Graphic 45 Fruit & Flora. It's an amazingly beautiful collection! The colors and so beautifully vibrant yet a vintage look as well.
With that said, I decided I would alter a small wooden cutting board I had in my stash. I actually had previously painted it a different color, so of course had to repaint it the color I wanted it to be to match this paper collection.
So, I began by going over it with white Gesso , letting it dry then painting it with acrylic paint in Antique White. After that dried I used Folk Art Crackle paint. And then, let that dry completely over night and the next day I brushed over the top with DecoArt White Crackle Paint for extra crackle.
I then, picked out the paper from the Graphic 45 8x8 paper pad that I would use for the background. Next, I adhered the paper to the frame then adhered that to the cutting board. After, I added the spoon embellishment inside the frame and added some lace trim applique on the top of the frame and the bottom of the cutting board.
Time to Fussy Cut
Then, I chose the paper that I would be fussy cutting, which came from 12x12 Graphic 45 Fruit & Flora collection pack as well. Once I was done fussy cutting the images, I wanted I used Tim Holtz Gathered Twigs Distress Ink around the edges of it. I then added an ephemera piece/die cut on the bottom of the cutting board and a small green bling piece on top center of the frame. Finished it off with a few flowers from my stash.
This DIY home decor piece will hang in my kitchen, unless my daughter wants it for her home lol. She loves to ask me for a lot of my completed projects so she can display in her home. It's an honor for me, to be honest.
Well, crafty friends, I hope that you liked my 1st design team project for this month! I'll be back next week with another project I'm excited about using these beautiful Graphic 45 papers!! Till then, enjoy the rest of the FotoBella designers share their beautiful creations!
