Today I am going to share a simple but fun wall plaque.
I traced this design onto a piece of thick chipboard and cut it out.
Spread DecoArt Media Modeling Paste through Circle Collage Stencil by Terri Sproul with a spatula.
Brick Wall Stencil in three spots, going off the edge of the board.
flourishes and crackle background around the base with black archival ink. Use several sizes of the flourishes to build your own flourishes and extend them.
The chandelier was painted with ColourArte's Mediterranean Blue, edged with Nutmeg daubers. Then, dimension was added with Peacock Liquid Pearls.
When you separate the pieces, you will have a frame and a center piece. Save the center piece for another project.
Die cut a single piece of chipboard and tan card stock from the largest rectangle to be used as your backing piece. Stamp sentiment onto another piece of tan card stock, center frame piece over image and trace around it with pencil. Cut away excess card stock, as well as the letters "C" and "s", as shown. These are the pieces you should have.
Dab vintage photo distress stain over the chipboard frame, leaving dots of color to look like burl wood. If you do not gesso the chipboard first, the stain will sink right into the fibers wherever it hits first, giving you these awesome color varia
Dab ColourArte's Solar Gold dabber over the top.
Lightly dab more Nutmeg dauber over the frame to give it a more vintage look.
Adhere frame over stamped card stock, allowing the letters that extend past the frame opening to be seen. Adhere the second backing piece of chipboard to the back for stability. Add some dimensional accents with Platinum Liquid Pearls in each corner.

I hope you enjoyed my rather lengthy, but picture-filled project today, and that I may have inspired you to take those die cuts and make them your own. I think you will love how easy it is to change the look of simple shapes with gorgeous paint products from ColourArte. With the right products, anything is possible. Of course, the stencils are fabulous fun for adding texture, and the stamps add that extra bit of flair.
Have a wonderful week, and stay crafty, my friends!
