Maureen's Garden Plaque
Here is my sister with her garden plaque:
They were actually pretty easy to make. I took a board and put stain on all sides, letting it sit overnight. In CCR, I typed the text "Maureen's Garden" using the Artbooking cartridge, and cut them out on heavy cardstock. I made another cut using the shadow icon of a hummingbird with a flower from Give a Hoot. Lining up the stencil, I used acrylic paints to stencil on the wood, letting each stencil dry before laying down the next stencil. I handpainted a shadow on the lettering and layered paints on the bird and flower. It's a little rough, but I like how it turned out. The next day I covered all sides with polyurethane to protect the plaque as it will go outside. A hanger on the back and it's ready to go. I think I might make a few more of these as gifts.
Take a look and see what my design team sisters have come up with this week, here's the link: BBTB2
