Day 5 of PLAID Project Week: Each day we are doing a drawing for a Mod Podge Gift Pack (read more about that here). Each day has a challenge or question that qualifies you for the daily drawing. For TODAY: Did you know that PLAID makes Silk Screen Stencils? Hop over to the Simply Screen page and tell us which stencil you would use on a t-shirt.
This Flower & Bee Frame by Kelly Schirmer.
Kelly used Folk Art Paint in Sea Mist, Lemonade, Barnyard Red, and Spanish Olive. The frame was in the clearance bin at Michael's for $1.50 (plain wood). The stamp sets she used are Ric Rac Circle for sentiment and flower, and open ric rac strip from Banners set (small). She also used Brilliance Black ink, and Papertrey Ink's Fresh Snow pigment ink.
Kelly provides her instructions and her review of the paints below:
Supplies for Flower and Bee Frame:
Frame from Michael's
Plaid Folk Art Paint in Barnyard Red, Sea Mist, Lemonade, and Spanish Olive
Pink Persimmon stamp sets, Ric Rac Circle, and Banners set (small)
Fresh Snow ink, Papertrey Ink
Brilliance Black ink
Kaiser black rhinestones
vellum from the Paper Company
Spellbinders Nestabilities, Petite Ovals Small set
Cuttlebug for cutting and embossing ovals
7/8 circle punch
red eyelet from American Crafts
hemp twine from JoAnn's
Step #3 : Painted Bee with Plaid's Lemonade Folk Art paint. Once dry, I stamped the "open" ric rac strip from Banners set (small). Cut and embossed 2 ovals from vellum paper using Spellbinders "Petite Ovals Small", and used the smallest oval in the set. Attached to the back of bee with glue dots. Added 2 black Kaiser Kraft rhinestones for the eyes.
Step #4: Painted base with Plaid's Seamist Folk Art Paint. Punched circle with 7/8 circle punch, and added red eyelet. Stamped "for you" sentiment from Ric Rac Circle set. Tied to base with hemp twine.
Kelly's "Pros" about the Folk Art Paint:
-thick paint but really smooth finish
-great coverage, only needed to do a touch up after 1 coat for only the darker colors; have plenty left to do more projects, so very cost effective.
-wide range of colors to choose from.
-colors true to swatch on the label.
-flip-top cap for no mess!
-no paint odor!
I can't think of "Cons" about the paint, I loved it!
