129th Power of Paint Party… USA

Thanks for Sharing!

I have a fabulous giveaway going on this week…  A Novica $75 gift certificate!  You can click HERE to enter.

This week I’m working on my summer mantel.   It’s slowly coming together.  I don’t know about you, but I’m one of those mantel people who takes a week to get it just so.  Every time I walk by I move something, add something, remove something… I just can’t keep my hands off.

In planning what I wanted for my summer mantel this year, I knew I wanted to include some red, white and blue… it is the summer Olympics this year after all.   So what better then a burlap sign cheering on Team USA.

To make this sign I cut out “USA” in the freezer paper.

Then I ironed the freezer paper, with the shiny side down, onto a piece of burlap.

I put my iron on a cotton setting with no steam.  Make sure when you are attaching freezer paper to fabric, especially something detailed like this, that you press well around the cut-out areas.  You don’t want the paint to seep under.

Then with acrylic craft paint and a stencil brush I pounced the paint on.

I let it dry about 20 minutes before peeling off the freezer paper to reveal my patriotic sign.
