Hello it is Arin here and if you are joining me from the Xyron Teresa Collins Designs/CardMaker Blog Hop you are in the right place. If not, you will need to head over to the Xyron Blog and see what all the fabulous designers have cooked up using the cute and very versatile collections of Teresa Collins Designs.
What I did was some thing super simple. In my Teresa Collins box of “happy mail” I scored the” You Are My Happy” collection and her Basically Essential stencils and combining it with Xyron’s Double Sided High Tack Tape, I decided to cook me up some wall art for the office.
Here is how I did it!
First I took a 8×10 wooden wall plaque base and painted it white and lightly sprayed a paper towel with Heidi Swapp Color spray and rough covered the wooden plaque.
Then I measured out and cut the 12×12 “You are My Happy- Spectacles Paper”. Using some washi tape, I taped down the 8×10 stencil over the design paper.
Using some Heidi Swapp Color Shine, I lightly sprayed the surface and allowed some time to set and dry. Once I carefully removed the stencil, I used some wet wipes and cleaned up perfectly.
Using Xyron Double Sided High Tack Tape, I applied it to the 8×10 painted wooded base and then secured the altered design paper pressing down gently to smooth out. I am telling you this top sheet isn’t going anywhere! That stuff sticks better than anything I have used! One of those products were if you have issues with commitment, you better shy away! 🙂
I then sanded down and inked the edges using Close to my Heart Slate ink pad.
I know you see me say, “There you have it! Easy peasy!” all the time, but seriously, you could not get any easier for something that will add some fun whimsy to any wall.
