Honestly, my mind goes crazy with ideas that are not the norm, if you will. I was going to make a layout and then decided to make an actual 12" x 10" door plaque for a boys room. It turned out too cute... *Ü*!
I do have one question... How does one capture the true affects of our designs...? This door plaque is made with chipboard throughout (even the background). Most of the paper piecings are pop dotted (some even double layered pop dotted). I have tried to take multiple photos to capture the 3D affect and was unsuccessful each time :(.
Nonetheless, here's the adorable Treehouse Pattern Set... *Ü*.
Everything is done in chipboard with cardstock. I inked and chalked forever... *Ü*. I just had to use lots of pop dots which really gave everything oodles of depth... especially the tree, ladder, and tire swing... I just ♥ it!! I wanted the treehouse to have an old kind of feel to it. The little boy is purposely dirty (from playing outdoors all day). I know that's not really captured in the photo. The frog is too stinkin' cute with his sign... *Ü*. I added a sun from my Cricut Create a Critter Cartridge (sized at 2"). This door plaque is very thick and a little heavy... perfect for a great door display... *Ü*.
I used a wonderful Acrylic Spray called PYM II to seal in the colors and such.
I really wanted this door plaque to last. This is one of my most favorite products. I have it listed on my sidebar under "My Favorite Products". This spray is wonderful for Polymer Clay designs as well. I will be demonstrating PYM II in the near future in my upcoming videos.
Visit PYM II and watch a great video they have demonstrating the wonderful benefits of their product. I know you will want to pick some up for yourself or perhaps family and friends. Speaking of which... I had a woman the other day ask me what I would suggest getting someone that scrapbooks and has lots of goodies already. I suggested this Acrylic Spray and various glues... which you can never have enough I say... *Ü*.
I'm off to spend some relaxing time with my family before heading to bed... as I'm very pooped from a long weekend.
Have a beautiful week!!
**Lots of BIG Hugs**
