This little beauty turned 8 months old, and has turned my little world upside down… She is now eating 3 meals a day, drinking 5 bottles a day, and when she isn’t eating, she’s scooching full speed on her tummy getting into tons of trouble tipping over plants, chewing on cords, pulling things of shelves, eating paper. I though our house was baby proof enough, but apparently not! Good thing she’s so freakin’ cute!!
So today I’m showing you a project inspired by Red Letter Words, faith inspired art. You must check out her site here, and you’ll probably fall in love with her work as much as I have! Here is my version of the mustard seed verse, in Matthew 17:20.
This one took me a little longer than planned. Here’s how it went:
and this is where I was stuck for a little while. Something was wrong with it, and I couldn’t figure out what. I sat it on the mantle and slowly began to realize I still had some crooked words!! I fixed the 2 crooked words, and then found more crooked words… and finally clued in the lines of the board weren’t completely straight! This was playing with my eyes and driving me crazy, but finally, perfection!
Now, did I mention my Christmas present?? I got to use this for the first time on this project:
Annie Sloan is the queen of chalk paint, which is a very coveted and very expensive paint. I put the waxes at the very top of my Christmas wish list with the address and phone number of where to get it… and lucky me!! My family looked like they thought I was just a wee bit crazy when they saw how excited I was about this stuff! But at $40 a container, it’s not something I would buy for myself!
So, next step was to wax with the clear wax and distress some more. Clean off, then clear wax it again.
I love, love the final feeling of the board after being waxed and buffed. It is soooo smooth!
