Other Supplies

Wood letters: N; O; E; L, 12"x12" Wood plank, 12" x12" Holiday scrapbook paper, Small piece of cardboard (with straight edges), Sandpaper, Small garland, Tree, Cotton ball, Hot glue gun, Hot glue, Paper towels, Brush basin, Foam plates, Scissors

Instructions

  1. Paint letters "N", "E" and "L" with Transparent Soft Gel Permanent Alizarin Crimson using either the Medium Foam Applicator or a 3/4" flat Mixed Media flat brush. When dry, accent edges by shading with Transparent Soft Gel Quinacridone Red. Allow to dry.
  2. Paint the letter "O" with Transparent Soft Gel Hooker's Green.  Allow to dry.
  3. Accent spritz the Hooker's Green "O" with Bright Green Color Spray. Allow to dry.
  4. Using scissors, trim holiday scrapbook paper; size 10" x 10" to fit within the 12" x 12" wood pallet board allowing the stained wood pallet to border or frame the paper once in place.
  5. Using traditional Mod Podge techniques, decoupage the trimmed holiday print scrapbook paper to the center of the wood pallet plaque. Allow to dry.
  6. When completely dry, sand the paper surface to create a heavily distressed appearance.
  7. Squeeze Opaque Soft Gel White onto a foam plate. Dip a straight edge of the small cardboard piece into the paint and lightly drag across the surface of the pallet to distress. Reapply after each coat dries until you reach the desired level of distress. Let dry.
  8. Hot Glue each of the letters to surface of pallet. (Refer to photo for placement.)
  9. Embellish "N" "E" and "L" with small sections of garland wrapped and glued around each letter as shown.
  10. Hot glue a cotton ball inside the letter "O" and add the small tree in place.
