DIY Inspirational Artwork

by Anna Teal, Jan 25 2017

Inspiration can be found anywhere and as a creator, it’s really fun to pull from different sources to make something beautiful. Pantone recently released their color of the year, Greenery and I’m in love! I was immediately inspired by this gorgeous, fresh color to make something special for my office!

What You’ll Need:

  • Wooden Plaque
  • FolkArt Multi-Surface in Lime Green, Wicker White and Metallic Silver
  • Small and Large Foam Pouncer
  • Scissors
  • Stencil Tape
  • Basecoating Brush

Step 1: Sand your wooden plaque so that it’s smooth to the touch.

Step 2: Basecoat the entire plaque lime green and let dry.

Step 3: Apply metallic silver to your dauber and offload excess paint onto a napkin. Apply the dauber to the plaque making a polka dot pattern over the entire plaque (As seen below). Let dry.

Step 4: Next, cut out the stencil letters with scissors and apply each one as seen in the photo, spelling out, “Share Your Magic.” 

Step 5: Once you have all the letters in place, apply the wicker white paint to the entire plaque. Immediately remove the stencils to reveal your custom artwork! Let dry.

Step 6: Hang your new artwork somewhere special so you can be reminded to "Share your Magic!"
