I began by using the Proxxon Delta Sander to sand a wood sign. Next I painted the sign with Plaid Folk Art Ultra Dye in Infra Red. This dye brushes on so smoothly and easily.
Once dry, I sanded it again to get a more rustic look.
To create the vase, I began by taking a paper towel tube and covering it with plastic wrap. The plastic wrap will allow you to easily remove the paper towel tube once the Paverpol has dried.
Next, I cut fabric slightly bigger than the tube and placed it in Transparent Paverpol.
After squeezing out the excess Paverpol, I wrapped it around the paper towel tube.
I allowed it to dry overnight. Then I was able to pull the tube out.
Using the Proxxon Jig Saw, I cut the Paverpol tube into 4 pieces.
Next I painted one of the tubes with Plaid Folk Art Milk Paint in Jamestown Blue.
Finally, I added May Arts Ribbon to the top and bottom of the "vase" and adhered it to the sign with Beacon Adhesive.
Left over chipboard letters were used to create the words. Then I randomly stamped flowers from the Joy Clair Stamp set, Paisley Bouquet, around the sign.
A butterfly, created from Rinea Foils, was added atop the vase. Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists were sprayed over the sign to add a little shimmer as the finishing touch.
Paverpol makes it so easy to upcycle that I don't want to throw anything away.
What will you upcycle today?
Thanks for stopping by.
