Today is day 2 of a 4 day Hop....
It's time to play....
For this project, each artist used Craft Attitude Printable Craft Film.
My daughter gave me this Ohio Shaped wooden plaque
and asked me to make something for the baby's room.
This seemed like a good time to use it.
I painted it white with gesso. The photos and design called for it.
The craft film is pretty much clear...so whatever is on the base
will show through the film once it is glued down.
I used the Map 6 Stencil by Mary Nasser & the little crosshatch stencil
from the August 2014 StencilClub Stencils
in dark reds and light grays around the edges...
Leaving the central area mostly white for now.
I followed the directions on the packaging of the Craft Attitude Film....
I printed my pictures in mirror image
since the little guy was wearing a Go Bucks shirt.
I did a test sheet on regular paper to make sure it was what I wanted...
I printed it, then waited the recommended two hours to let it dry completely...
then used a glue stick to glue it down.
I added some magazine words,
I'm a Buckeye..
Since the little guy doesn't live in Ohio... he has to learn where his roots lie!
I played with different reds, filling in the background.
I added more of the crosshatch stencil in the bottom area and
shaded the entire edge of the state shape with the Dark Cherry color StazOn Ink.
I added stars for where the baby's family members live in Ohio
and a heart where Columbus is.
There you have it.
Another Hop Project complete!
