Kid's Rocker - Lake Style Paint-Gray and White

Swimming,
 
Splashing,
 
Jumping off of the dock,
 
Laughing.
 
I love to see the kids at the lake
 
taking to the water like fish.
 
So for the new little neighbor at the lake,
 
he's going to get a "Waconda Minnow" tattoo
 
(on his chair).
 
 
 
 
Starting with a basic white,
 
I double loaded a brush with half gray and half white
 
for a weathered dock look.
 
 
 
Then dry brushed white over the top of that.
 
 
 
I've always like this charcoal and white look.
 
It worked great on this table too.
 
 
 
 
Using super soft shades of aqua, yellow and gray,
 
I combined a lot of white paint with glaze
 
to just shade the edges of some of the boards.
 
 
 
 
Now for the little guy's tag -
 
I used the "Simon Script" font,
 
chalked the back,
 
and pressed with pen from the front
 
to transfer the lettering.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Here are some other details...
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Pin It!
 
 
The colors are really suitable to boy or girl
 
and would look good in the nursery
 
or in the living room.
 
 
 
 
or on the dock.  ha
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Pin It!
A sweet "sit upon"
 
for the new little neighbor.
 
Encouraging Lake Love early!
