Here is my project: altered wall art that I made for my new home entrance and I really love it there.
I used Rustic Pallet 12*14'' wooden piece and painted it all with a chalkboard paint. I am not going to write over it, but this mute black is my new painting love.


Then I stamped  those LIVE- LOVE- LAUGH words with Ann Butler's delicious letter stamps. Those 2'' letters are just the perfect match to this wooden board. The letters come from Flourish 2'' ABC mad fr Ann Butler by Kellycraft and yes, it was a long and hard way to get  al of them stamped nicely with heat embossing over those wooden panels. I used Clearsnap Frosted white  pigmented ink (just to see the letters before you heat emboss them) as using a clear embossing ink makes it hard to see the letters  before you add the powder.


Them I  painted around  some of the letters with a black paint again (it work, also a lot of work) as  some powder splashes were too visible around the stamped images.




The nest was to embellish this piece, but not over embellish it as my house is pretty much minimalistic.
So I heat embossed  Tando Creative  chipboard pieces and stamped over the hot enamel with Ann Butler's Unity 1''  Stripes. Dots. Hearts cling stamps for the texture over the chipboards.

I added a bit of background texture with Tando mask and texture paste and this piece was done.
I really like it a lot and hope you  like it too.

Impressive! Love the letter font and love that you used a chalk board paint but won't necessarily use it everyday.
Happy Memorial Day weekend, giving thanks to those who fought and died for us.
