I have had this cross for years, and have never displayed it. I decided to make it pop more, and better fit my decor by covering it with washi tape. This is a super fast and easy way to create an entirely new look. Washi tape comes in gorgeous prints, and is inexpensive. It is simple to apply, and quite forgiving (repositionable). I found mine at Target in the office supply section, and Michael’s.
Here is how I did it:
Before finishing with Mod Podge Pearlized Glaze, I inked over the tape with Ranger Antique linen distress ink and dried with heat tool.
I applied 2 coats of the glaze. I LOVE this stuff. The pics don’t really do it justice since you can’t get the full effect of the pearl-iness. If you are thinking, “Hey, I have never seen that stuff”, you are right. It is brand spankin’ new. You will be seeing a lot of cool new Mod Podge products over the next couple of weeks. Be very excited!
I decided the cross was too plain, so I made this scallop rectangle frame using sizzix, and stamped “LOVE”. I added decorative buttons and stuck it to the cross with glue dots.
Be on the look out for more decoupage here at SBLC, and everywhere.
