Creating Made Easy April Kit ~ Birch Wood Signs

Hi, Connie here with the Creating Made Easy April Kit by Clear Scraps.  The kit comes with a package of rectangle Birch Wood shapes that are perfect for painting or altering.  I used a couple of stencils by Clear Scraps ( not in the kit) and made a couple of word signs.

The wood is so smooth, no need to sand it before you paint.  I love that!!!

After the color was painted on and the Birch Wood was dry, the stencils were used to add a word or words (in my case).  The boards were hand sanded, to give a vinatge look, and speckled with black and white acrylic paint watered down.  I always use an old toothbrush to splat on my projects.  I feel I have more control as to where the splat will end up.

Hubby drilled the top holes for me and wire was added for the hanger.  These would be so cute attached to a gift bag or hanging on the wall or door knob.  Stickers and ribbon were added also.

Products not included in the kit are:
buttons, paint, stencils.

products used:
12" Imagine stencil by Clear Scraps
6" Imagine stencil by Clear Scraps
