Today I wanted to share with you a wintery holiday sign using stencils as a guide for a wood burning design.
- Rustic wood plaque from Walnut Hollow®
- Creative Versa-Tool® from Walnut Hollow®
- White acrylic paint
- Paint brush
- Modeling paste and palette knife
- Stencils: Mountain View, Evergreens and Love and Peace
I then decided to add some light washes of watercolor to the trees and sky to make the mountain range stand out a bit more. I used a pale blue for the sky, a couple of greens for the trees and darkened the letters with a bit of brown. You can certainly paint the watercolor on before the modeling paste if you like.
The final step was to dry brush white acrylic paint over the modeling paste to give the snow effect more depth. If you plan to hang the sign outside, I would suggest spraying it with a outdoor sealer. I’m going to display mine in my home, so I left it natural. I love that I have a pretty holiday sign that can be displayed through Christmas and on into the rest of the winter months!
Thanks for joining me today!
