My Desk Sign!

Hi Everyone!
I wanted to share a project that I made. Sa Crafters is having a desk sign contest on you tube, and I
thought I would make myself one. I didn't enter the contest,but I had fun making this. I purchased the wood plaque from Hobby Lobby. I painted it with white acrylic paint,let it dry and then went over it with distress
crackle paint in picket fence and I also used rock candy crackle paint to give it a glossy, crackled shine.

The top and bottom is adhesive backed recollection bling. The metal key is also from Hobby Lobby. I painted it with black acrylic paint and adhered with hot glue.  The vellum butterfly is from Martha Stewart crafts. I added a black feather, some more black recollection bling, and a color me crazy flower with a ribbon flower on top and I made the stick pin using
a corsage pin, glass beads and glossy accents. I loved how my sign turned out!

Here is a closeup of the butterfly and the metal key!

Thanks for looking!
Have a Blessed Day :-)


  1. Your name sign is lovely. I love the black and white colour and all the elements you added. So pretty.
    I never enter challenges (except the HeArt Challenge, but there isn't a prize for it) because I am such a procrastinator that I am always to late, lol.
    Thank you for visiting my blog today, I hope you visit again :)
