Handmade Holiday's Blog hop


 Welcome to the 3rd annual Handmade Holiday's Blog Hop! Aren't handmade gifts the best? 

As part of the Ice Resin design team, I was asked to participate in this blog hop. I received some fun items from Walnut Hollow and Clearsnap to work with, as well as Ice Resin. Let's jump in!

 I started with the wooden bistro sign which I lightly sanded and applied a light coat of acrylic paint. 



Next I moved on the Magic stamp. Using a heat gun and block of wood I created a wood grain stamp that I transferred to the bistro sign. The grain was then laid over the pre painted board using the Surfacez Caribbean ink. After this step, I applied torn tissue paper with decoupage for a light, transparent texture.


The lettering was also done using theSurfacez ink.

Next, the ampersand was painted and text applied, followed by smalll tack nails to attach. Lastly, a top coat of Ice Resin was applied to seal the deal!


Hope your Holidays are creative ones!

Peace, Jomama
