Now let’s get this party started 🙂
When I was asked to take part in this blog hop amongst some truly talented bloggers…I nervously accepted.
I mean let’s get real…I pull my stuff out of barns full of dust and cobwebs…I’m a Junker!
Truth be told, this opportunity combined two of my favorites.
I love creating with Old Sign Stencils and I grew up with my Mom in the garden.
So what better theme than something that took me back to some truly wonderful childhood memories.
With “garden” as the theme I set out to create a little potting area.
We took an old metal table with amazing color and attached 100-year-old wood to create a canopy over a potting area.
I made it functional by adding some rusty hooks to hang garden tools and an old chain for the sign.
This was the first time working with Fusion Mineral Paint and it was wonderful.
This green(Lily Pond)quickly became my favorite.
With the growing popularity of “she-shed’s” we couldn’t resist using a little creative license and having a little fun with the Potting Shed stencil!
This old weigh scale originally had a metal top, but my hubby was convinced that an old wood top would look better.
I had my doubts, but he was right, and it brought a charming simplicity to both the stencil and the scale.
Next, I took an old rusty hog feeder and transformed it to a welcome sign and new home to a pair of pretty purple petunias…onomatopoeia anyone 🙂
I’ve had so much fun playing with these new garden stencils and love how you can couple previously released stencils with the new ones.
Sooo what do I start with…a small pile of rusty metal pieces that had seen their best days behind them…otherwise know as junk!
If you ask me adding the Garden Stencil to the hog feeder completely changed the look and feel!
How simple is that!
My kind of simple…the hardest part is keeping your brush dry when you stencil!
The key is to tap your brush on something absorbent to ensure your brush is dry.
I also tap it on the top of my hand before I start and then simply tap your brush up and down.
I’m still a work in progress, but when I get it just right it looks so good and adds just enough to an old piece to make it a little more fun.
So how do you have the chance to win…
