Welcome to the Earth Day Blog Hop. Three amazing companies Stencil Girl, Earth Safe Finishes and Ann Butler are together to bring you some gorgeous projects featuring their products.

If you are coming from Steph’s blog, you’re in the right place and if you’re just stopping by you can start here. Don’t forget to leave a comment on each blog to be entered into the many draws for prizes. Usually I made cards, but today I broke the tradition and create a board for my notes or photos. This was a plain frame that I bought in Craft & Arts store. It was black, with chevron burlap background. Didn’t have the metal flower and my big surprise was discovered that the board was on metal or magnet.

I decided to change the color the color of the frame. For this I removed the board and painted the frame using Earth Safe Finishes Chalk It Up Huckleberry Cobbler, a beautiful dark blue. I covered all the black with two layers. Then when the paint was totally dried and using a sand paper I created a some distress over the borders of the frame. This sand removed me the Huckleberry Cobbler and the black paint.


With the board, I also work. I removed the chevron burlap and turn around to use the plain side. Over this I painted with my stencils from Stencil Girl. I used Deconstructed Cluster of Lilies Mask and Stencil with ESF Chalk It Up Cherry Jubilee and English Tea Cake. And I mixed the ESF Texture Smooth with Ann Butler Iridescents Sheer Gold and Sheer Bronze and a few drops of Sheer Tangelo to give color of the paste and use this with the stencils Never Ending Caledar Mini and Eddy Rose 6 Stencil. When the burlap was dried I pasted again over the board using a Quick Grip All Purpose Permanent Adhesive.


Then I secured the board again to the frame and to covert some details that don’t look perfectly I pasted a metal flower that I bought and enhance the colors using Ann Butler Iridescents Sheer Silver, Pearl and Sheer Gold.
