Making A Blessings Board

Blessings, old boards, and the color red...
 
Won't that make a great combination
 
for a sweet February project!
 
 
 
Or what about this idea -
 
A place to hang Christmas Stockings too!
 
 
 
 
 
Good old fence board,
 
a diluted raw umber,
 
and black paint
 
make the base.
 
 
 
Two of my favorite reds are next.
 
 
 
Chalk transfer the lettering.
 
 
 
 
Shade with camel
 
and a black liner brush.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I used hooks from Hobby Lobby.
 
You can usually find them half price.
 
 
 
 
Here are my fixin's
 
for my sweet blessings.
 
Black matting board,
 
tea stained paper,
 
sepia toned photos,
 
bakers twine,
 
and
 
jute.
 
 
 
 
Put it all together
 
for wall art that will bless your home
 
and make you smile.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Pin It!
 
 
 
Blessings,
 
Deb

Deb, I know I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but I just love this. Love the bright color, the font you used, the color for the shading, the hooks, everything. Pinning this!

This is so cute. Your painting just amazes me. You are so good! To think that started out as a plain old fence board and now look at it.

You are truly "One Talented Woman"!
I am pinning this because it is made out of fence board, and mostly because it is beautiful!

This is great! You totally fooled me; from the picture, I thought you had applied wooden letters to your board ~ dang, you're good! Love how you mounted the photos too!!
