‘;I love making small home decor pieces! This little wood piece is just perfect for a bookshelf or hanging on a gallery wall. My friends and family are always giving me scraps of wood and they are not always the older rustic wood I am looking to use but using the Tattered Angels Baseboard Mists and Glimmer Glazes, I can turn a ‘;new’; piece of wood into a ‘;weathered’; or ‘;rustic’; piece of wood in no time at all!’; –; says Karen.

Here are all the steps that Karen followed:

Start with a scrap of wood, mine was about 7 inches by 10 inches. Then spray a layer of Tattered Angels Baseboard in the color Cardboard all over the wood. Don’;t worry if it is lighter or darker in spots –; the more variations the more realistic the wood coloring!

Now, this is where I had a little oopsburlap pillow cover diy, that turned into a happy accident! As I was streaking on the Tattered Angels Satchel and Mercury Glass Shimmer Glaze, I spilled the Mercury Glaze bottle onto my craft sheet. Not wanting to waste a drop, I used a paint brush to brush the mercury glaze over the entire piece! So, don’;t spill yours, but cover the entire piece with the glaze –; it gives is such a perfect gray weathered look!

While the glaze is drying prepare your text and map tissue paper. Wrap a piece of tissue paper around a piece of printer paper and tape it down tightly. Then run the tissue paper through the printer. If your tissue paper has a shiny side, make sure to print onto the non-shiny side! Type up the words you want on your computer and print them out!! I also used a second piece of tissue paper wrapped printer paper and copied a map of Georgia to go underneath the text! Use matte medium to glue the pieces to the piece of wood! I find the best way to stick it down is to put the ‘;glue’; onto the wood and then place the paper on top. Use a brush with matte medium on it, brush from the middle out to the edges very gently!

After the matte medium is dry, use the Tattered Angel white Chalk spray to lighten up the gray color with white spots, big and small. The?bottom picture shows the comparison on the?form and back of the wood when was finished off with the white mist! It looks so weathered!

Finally, finish up the decor piece with jute cord, leather cording and a small button. Use a good glue to make sure your embellishments don’;t com off the piece when you are done! And you are finished and now enjoy your new piece!

Did you even know that it was so easy to transform a slice of ‘;new’; wood into such a distressed and old looking piece of art? As you can see, Tattered?Angels paints are indeed good for?absolutely every?singe art project!

Showing our co-workers, boss, or even customers that we value the work they do all year can be tricky, especially as everyone likes different things. This year, don’t go for the usual gift voucher; give them something you know they’ll love and get them a gift basket. Edible ones are the best, as everyone loves to indulge in the holidays.
