Hello everyone! Today I have some wonderful spring gift ideas perfect for Mother’s Day or your own home.
This 2 tone “Choose Happiness” standing wood sign is just so happy and cheerful and what a good reminder for us all! Quantities are limited on this Paper Wishes favorite so don’t delay and order yours today! The sign is a great size, 19 3/4″ long and 10 1/4″ tall. Perfect for a shelf or windowsill.
I gave the wood pieces (there are 2, including the stand) a quick sand to remove a few fuzzies and then I used a foam paintbrush to paint Peacock Cosmic Shimmer Paint on the bottom “HAPPINESS” portion of the sign and Malachite Cosmic Shimmer Paint on the top “CHOOSE” part of the sign.
I used the foam paintbrush to lightly sponge where the 2 paint colors meet to blend them. Paint the base Peacock, let the paint dry and place a few dots of Craft Tacky Glue along the bottom edge of the words piece and slide into the painted wood base.
Here’s a little inspiration for your handmade Mother’s Day card. The Sunday Musings Papers and Ribbon pair perfectly with the Rose Decorative Die & Stamp Set. I used Words Scrapbooking Dazzles™ Stickers for the greeting and personalized it with Friends & Family Black Dazzles™ Stickers “Mom”. Add some sparkle with Gold Dust Stickles® Glitter Glue!To create a watercolor look I chose Essentials Spectrum Aqua™ Markers. This is such a quick & easy technique to do and nearly foolproof!
Why not make a coordinating Flower Card/Photo Holder? Paint the wood flower with Peacock Cosmic Shimmer paint and let dry. Cover the flower center with Gold Dust Stickles® Glitter Glue and a stamped/die cut twig from Rose Decorative Dies & Stamp Set. Embellish the wire holder and photo with Sunday Musings Ribbons and you’re done!
