WELCOME TO MADE BY ME FOR MONDAY!!!
This week I am sharing a project I made for a friend of mine. She had a baby a while back and she named him, Jude. Super cute, right? Well, who can help but have The Beatles, "Hey Jude" song in their head when they hear that name :)
I found this frame and it reminded me of a record (Um, yes, I am old enough to know what a record is. I know some of you aren't though!). The shape seemed PERFECT since his name goes along with an old Beatles song.
This is what it looked like when I bought it:
|Step ONE: Paint the frame with linen paint.|
|Step TWO: Add stain to the linen paint. This is what will peek through the crackle.|
|Step THREE: Add a layer of Elmers glue to get the crackle finish.|
|Step FOUR: Add a layer of white paint on top of the Elmers. Make sure the Elmers is tacky, but not dry.|
|Step FIVE: Create the "Subway Art" on my Cricut Design Studio.|
|These are the fonts I used.|
|Step SIX: Cut the Subway Art out. It doesn't matter what color because they are just being used as a mask.|
|Step SEVEN: Add the letters on top of the dry crackled paint.|
|Step EIGHT: Paint over the top of the entire frame with black paint.|
|Step NINE: Remove the vinyl letters and then distress the edges with sandpaper.|
|See the "Crackle" showing through. I LOVE that it looks aged!|
|FINISHED! I hope she likes it! Won't it look cute with a picture of Jude in the center of it???|
