Floral Nameplate – Ft. Little Birdie Stone Texture Paste

Hello beautiful people,

Manasa Priya here on the blog today!

Brought you a little spring blooms to cheer you up this winter. It’s all on a beautiful floral nameplate.

The first step was to clean the surface, in this case, a planter nameplate. I applied white gesso all over the front and the sides. Gesso helps in priming as well as reflecting good colors. Then I painted the top portion of the board with  chalk paint.

Now, using the Little Birdie Deco Magic glue, pasted the floral print napkin. Once it was completely dry, I applied one more coat of Deco Magic glue all over the surface. Allowed it to dry completely before sanding off the edges.

Next, used the Icy Blue acrylic paint. I blended the napkin to give a sky like finish to the floral background.

Then, I used the olive archival ink and dots stamp from Little Birdie. I stamped randomly for a beautiful blending.

Then using this amazing mixed media stencil and Stone Texture Paste, I stencilled randomly again.  Allowed it to dry for 24 hours to cure completely which gave a stony finish. I love this beautiful Apple Mint Stone Texture Paste. It instantly added so much dimension to my nameplate.

Don’t you all love this texture? I am just crushing over it. Head on to store or buy these beauties online and participate in this month’s challenge at Itsy Bitsy.

Once everything was dry, I applied 3 coats of varnish with proper intervals.

I hope you enjoyed looking into the details of this project.

Until next time…Happy crafting
