Wooden Plaques

Hello Friends,

Piyanki here today with another exciting, fun project featuring the Craftreat Stencils. You must have seen the array of home decor stencils that are there in the Craftreat catalogue.

Today;s project is a form of wall art and is a fun technique to work with Stencil. Let me give some peak into the projects.

1 -  Apply a thin coat of White Gesso on all the wooden plaques and let it dry.
2 -  Apply a think coat of any dark shade chalk paints. Rub some candle stick on the surface to create the chipped edges and also the distress edge.
3 - Once done then apply a lighter shade on top it and let it semi dry.
4 - Once partial dry chip off paints and also sand it with a sanding block so that on some places the background color exposes.
5 - Take your stencil and using a rolling brush transfer the image.
6 - Stamp some images with archival ink( Do not use distress ink here ) to create a background.
7 - Apply antique wax and rub off with a clean cloth.
8 - You can choose to apply a coat of varnish to finish this project.

A beautiful Change!

Hello Everyone, today I have a very beautiful project to share with you all! Its quite summery , bright and shiny on my part of the world. This project is inspired by where I live , mood boards and definitely the fun of working with colors and chips.

The moodboard of Dusty Attic inspired me a lot not only with the bright yellow and orange but also with the theme. I am working with lot of chips featuring in my projects and also in my altered Canvas I preferred to pick up a quote as a focal point than an image or a photograph.

So here's some close ups and the project I created.Every element in my project has a story to attach to the layout.

Here I am using a Dusty Attic chipboard inspired by the wedding bouquet and the tale center piece. I gessoed it and then painted it green with some splashes of stones.

    I love flowers and love to make handmade ones, so the orange and yellow color palate in the moodboard is from where I picked up the colors also flowers form part of the storyboard. The chipboards are colored with golden and silver sparkles depicting the bride shoe in the picture.

    Creation of a butterfly is a new life , a new beginning and so is the wedding . I loved the quote as it adds a lot of depth.

    Here's the final canvas which shows the entire layout with all the elements,.


I am entering this in the dusty Attic Blog. Below is where you will find all the elements I used from

Hope you liked it and do share your love and comment.

Until then Happy Crafting!
