Hi there, I'm usually a bit down in the dumps on a Sunday evening, thinking about going back to work but not today. I've got tomorrow off work as its hubby's birthday and I've also had some exciting news too :-) I'm joining the mega talented Sarah Hurley's DT!!
I was over the moon when Sarah invited me to join her fabby friendly team, and in fact I'm still doing a happy dance lol.
Anyway I've been busy making some top secret projects this weekend (I have more exciting news to come lol) so I thought I'd share of my 'paint fusioned' bath panel. Apols for the truly terrible photo, my bathroom is tiny and I had to be a contortionist to get this photo lol. After some work in the bathroom, the pine veneer came off the panel leaving an mdf blank so rather than fork out for a new one I decided to recycle it with stamps and paint.
I used willow green and cream emulsion with watered down pva glue for the background and then used Sheena Douglass' 'Berries' stamps with black stazon to set out the design. I've used assorted acrylic paints from my stash - one tip, if you decide to have a go at this, take the bath panel out before you paint it :-) I was walking like a little old lady for a week after tying myself in knots to paint this LOL. Once the paint was dry, I rubbed gold rub'n'buff around the mouldings and then gave the whole thing 5 coats of satin varnish.
I'm entering my bath panel in the latest Craft Room Challenge which is 'Home decor'
Thanks for visiting today, I hope my UK blogging buddies are bunkered up away from the bad weather we're expecting and I'm sending hugs to those across the water on the anniversary of 9/11, such an emotional day for everyone but even more so for those caught up in the tragedy and their families
