Welcome to July's Designer Crafts Connection blog hop! This month we're crafting for Family Celebrations! Our family celebrated a lot in June. We had a 70th birthday, a 30th birthday, Father's Day and a baby shower. We have a large extended family and we like to celebrate!
As I write this, we're getting ready for a really big event at the end of June - my youngest daughter's wedding! I made this sign for the entry. I used a technique that was new to me - crackle painting with glue. It was so easy and the results were great, so I am excited to show you.
First, I painted the sign black.
Then, I painted the sign with a layer of clear tacky glue.
You can see the surface is showing cracks already, so you need to apply the second layer of paint right away.
Here's the finished sign board.
I painted wood letters black and then sanded them with sandpaper for an aged look and I added a pink heart in the center.
Simple and quick (and the bride approved!)
Enjoy your Family Celebrations!
(For this project, I used Aleene's(R) Clear Gel Tacky Glue(TM) and I would recommend this product for this project. I have received this product for use in my design work.)
