Around a week now I’ve been staring at this..
I apologize, there is no natural light in my hallway. Anyway, the Blue Ocean Breeze blue just doesn’t mesh well, and the skull on the candle stick looks a little goofy. I like the black bird, however.
I knew I wanted a plate, but I wasn’t willing to pay a lot for something that would only be displayed for a few weeks a year.
Those of use without a vinyl cutting machine have to get a little creative sometimes, so that’s what I did.
I started out with this old plate.
I simply spray painted it white.
Using only supplies I had on hand already…
I lay my stencils out in the center of the plate..
and with a $1 permanent marker I filled them in.
Then using painters tape, I taped off stripes on the side, and filled in any space that wasn’t taped with the marker.
If you try this yourself, be very gentle when you’re removing your tape! I learned this the hard way :\
No big deal, I just filled them in using my fingertip with white acrylic paint.
Again, I apologize. No natural light in my hallway. Much better than before, yes?
I linked up!
