Would you believe that after being open a month, I finally made my first project? It was small. So last night I decided it was high time I made something. To get ready for the double-sided fall/winter plank workshop coming up this Friday, I decided to create one of my own.
I love the Happy Fall Y'all planks we have been featuring, but I like this design as well and decided to do something different.
I wanted a lighter brown for my background, so I mixed the walnut with the natural(tannish color) to achieve the color I wanted. I was pleased with the result. :)
The flowers at the top and bottom reminded me of mums. I really wanted purple and shaded in some goldish orange as well.
And because there are no mistakes at Hammer & Stain, when some stain dripped down from the other side and pooled a little, I covered up with an extra leaf stencil I had on hand. I cut the stencil in half and put to the left of the L to cover up and the other half on the other side between the F and pumpkin to balance out.
and now for the reverse side:
I just love this design! The nativity inside the B, simple yet elegant.
We have a red stain, but I wanted a different color so I mixed in some black to get this custom color.
I did the same for the stars. We have some metallic, but it was too coppery. So I mixed until I found the color I was going for.
Yes, if you don't see a color you want, let's create it!
