The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Painting – Part 2
Hey! Good Morning! I just wanted to follow up on my last post where I showed you how to do the lazy girl’s guide to paint lettering. This time I want to show you how to apply the same technique using garage sale stickers. Yep. stickers.
I basically used the same technique as before. I started with a wooden frame and spray painted the base coat white. Then instead of lettering I wanted to do polka dots. Again – who has time to sit and paint all those dots? My ADD kicks in SO badly at this point! For reals! I could have cut the dots out on my Cricut machine but I had these garage sale stickers sitting around from the last garage sale and they were the perfect size! I placed the stickers where I wanted the polka dots to be. (yeah – I might have gone a little dot crazy here!) Then I gave them a good rub to ensure that they were stuck tightly to the wood. Then using my top color, a pretty little girl pink, I painted over the entire piece.
Once again, be sure to let the paint dry until it is no longer shiny. Using a craft knife, gently pull up the edge and pull off of the dot. You should have a beautiful perfectly round white dot at this time… if not grab a slight damp, small brush and remove any paint the has bleed under the sticker. Let the entire piece dry completely and then paint a poly coat if you so desire!
Here is the finished piece. By using this technique, I have saved myself a ton of time! And quite honestly, I am not sure that my hand painted polka dots would have that crisp of an edge or all be the same size!
This project is definitely a beginner level. Remember, you can use this technique on just about anything! Happy painting!
Until next time….
