My friends are so used to me now asking them to save corks, jam jar lids etc they even ask me if I want things before they throw them out. I am not normally surprised at what they do throw away although when Sandra, a friend from the village, asked if I wanted her bathroom door to paint on I was a bit taken aback. The door came but unfortunately it had a little wood worm in the frame. Not wanting to waste any precious wood Freddie took it apart for me.
This month Crafty Individuals (links on the side bar) started a monthly challenge. This months theme is squares. Here is a plaque I made for the challenge using one of the door panels.
The panel has been coated with two coats of acrylic paint.
I stamped into clay with the bird stamp. Painted it dark brown, rubbed in the gold wax and fixed it with hair spray. The square in the middle is a piece of mount board that I painted to look similar to one of the corners on the stamp and sealed it with modge podge. The squares at the bottom have also been made from mount board. I painted them with acrylic paint, stamped on to them and then embossed them.
The embellishments have been attached using PVA glue except for the key which I have attached using silicon glue.
Stamps used: Crafty Individuals Script CI017, Background CI116 and The Birds CI265.
Best Wishes Florence.
