Before I get started with that I want to share with you a few more blessings recieved today! This has been the most amazing week! When I made the recycled dress for Alexis, I was tempted not to blog about it. There were many reasons which all seemed pretty good to me, like I am not the worlds best seamstress for starters. But, Oh my word...Shut the Front Door...thank you Jesus I did.
What an overwhelming response to that post! It's ok with me that my daughter stole my spotlight! She's enjoying all the hubaloo & feels like quite the rock star! So thank you to all of you wonderful loveable bloggers out there!
We were most viewed last week here too,
And mentioned by Stephanie Lynn here,
I luv the way the stars look...random, different sized, some cut off as if a patterned fabric were used.
Onto the Heart Flag. The painting that follows can be painted on any shape...a square, rectangle, even circles...I had a heart, I luv the flag on a heart so that's what I used. So you need a wood heart to recreate mine, but you can paint this on any material!
-- Material to paint on.
-- Acrylic paints (I use almost any brand)
Red- one pure red, one a little darker. (I used a Merlot.)
Dark Green (I used Thicket)
-- Float Medium (you can use water too!)
1 very small thin liner brush (optional)
1 small flat brush
1 medium flat brush
Large brush to basecoat with
-- Star stencils
-- Scruffy or stencil brush
-- Clear sealer
First...after sanding and priming your piece if necessary, paint the entire piece white. This may take several thin coats.
Some of the stars were more heavily painted than others. Have fun with it! It's your project!
edit: Due to issues with Blogger, I managed to miss a few of my fav. parties this week. I'll be back to them next week though! Kim
