Other Supplies

8” x 10” Oval canvas, Tall oval scalloped wood plaque, Paper mache cube block ornament, 1 1/8” Acorn dowel cap, Brush basin or container for water, Paper towels, Fine grit sandpaper, Scissors, Pencil, ¾” Flat brush, Color complimentary scrapbook paper, Hot glue/gun

Instructions

  1. Basecoat large scalloped plaque Buttercream. Allow to dry. Sand smooth using fine grit sandpaper.
  2. Load ¾” flat brush with both Buttercream and Summer Peach, using the slip slap technique, paint a mottled background on the plaque. Be careful not to over blend as you want to see the two colors slipped and slapped over each other. Allow to dry.
  3. Position the Leaf Variety stencil where desired and stencil randomly over the plaque. I used Summer Peach, Glazed Carrots and Barnyard Red to stencil a fall colored leaf. Allow to dry.
  4. Basecoat the underneath side of the oval canvas Glazed Carrots. Allow to dry.
  5. Using the slip slap technique, paint a mottled background on the canvas sides and edge using both Summer Peach and Glazed Carrots. Paint the same on the wood acorn dowel cap. Allow to dry.
  6. Using a pencil and the Leaf Variety stencil, trace a few leaves onto your scrapbook paper. Cut the paper leaves out using scissors.
  7. Attach the paper leaves inside the canvas panel using Matte Mod Podge. Allow to dry.
  8. Basecoat the paper mache block ornament using the slip slap technique with Summer Peach and Buttercream. Allow to dry.
  9. Stencil “Joy” on all four horizontal sides of the block ornament. I stenciled an ombre effect using Summer Peach, Glazed Carrots and Barnyard Red.
  10. Attach the painted wood acorn dowel cap to the top of the canvas edge using hot glue.
  11. Hang the completed block ornament from the acorn dowel and enjoy the message of “Joy.”
Tip: Switch it up change the word to “Fall” or change the color palette to represent winter holiday colors! Have fun, express yourself!
