Starting up as usual with my #photoadayaug from yesterday, the prompt being "home"
Here is mine :)
A cute decor piece which I *think* I purchased from this even cuter shop Live, Laugh, Love
It was a good while back, so they may not stock it still, but I tell you "I could live in that shop!"
Next up is a project I've been working on for the last two days.
When I spotted these cuties on Pinterest I knew I had to give it a try!
The original entry is here on this gorgeous Blog "A Shabby Moment in Time" where rub-ons were used to embellish the painted pots.
Alas I have no rub-ons so I ordered myself some Mod-Podge and started stalking the Graphics Fairy Blog (again!)
I did have paint (albeit a smidge of Homebase Driftwood leftovers) so I set to work on a few pots in a haphazard shabby fashion
Select some images, re-size and arrange them in photoshop or similar and print with a regular ink-jet printer onto regular printer paper. Remember to reverse any text first.
Cut around each image
Brush the printed side with some Mod-Podge
and place it on your painted pot smoothing out any bubbles
Now the hard bit, leave it - overnight!
Go and have a glass of wine and scour your home for any more items that could be transformed ;)
The next day take a wet sponge to your paper image, soak it and start to gently rub the paper away.
See how easy it comes away!
If you rub some of the image away it'll be because it didn't adhere sufficiently, don't worry it's meant to look worn. If it really bothers you just whip out your Sharpie pen!
Finally I had fun creating a mini table display in the garden incorporating a few creamy/white treasures including the napkins I made last week :)
Take care for now
