Wooden Coffee Mug Coasters – Crafty Individuals Challenge

Hi everyone

I hope you are well and have something nice planned for the weekend.

Thank you to all you lovely ladies for your visits and for the comments and kind words you left on my last post.

Today’s little project is a set of coffee mug coasters.

Apologies for the photo.  These are a lot lighter in real life.

Crafty Individuals Stamps used:
Grace Darlings Lighthouse CI 384

I painted the four coasters with two coats of Gesso, two coats of beige paint and one coat of warm white, leaving the paint to dry between coats.
I then stamped the lighthouse, directly onto the painted surface, using blue paint.
To give them a bit of a weathered look I sanded the outside edges a little.
I then gave both sides of the coasters two coats of household varnish.

Thank you for looking.

Have a wonderful creative weekend.

    • Hi Emma, Lovely to hear from you. The craft blog is still running. I just haven’t had the time to make anything to post but hopefully now summer is over I will be able to get back to crafting like I used to. I have been busy with the cards and they are on my card making blog. It can get a bit confusing. It was so lovely seeing you join in the CI challenge. Just like old times.
      Take care, Flo xx
