"Welcome Home" Chalkboard Sign

With spring finally here on the East Coast, I decided I needed a little "welcome home" sign to welcome guest into our home. I started with a wooden sign that I primed with gesso added some crackle medium. When it was dry I painted the wooden sign with some acrylic paint in yellow ochre. Dragged Black Soot Distressed ink over the edges, I used a wet paint brush to smooth out the ink along with using different glimmer mist and perfect pearls powders to give a weathered look to the sign. Using stucco and gesso with a Prima mask adding a crackle all over the sign and chalkboard paper.
Canvas Corp makes different color clothespins which are amazing, I grabbed the natural clothespins and thought my graphite and slate blue glimmer mist would create a pretty weathered looking clothespins. I couldn't resist playing with color.
 Canvas Corp makes different colors of burlap sheets which are fabulous!!!! I took the slate grey one for frame the chalkboard paper (which is stinking amazing) hot glued them both down to the sign added some stucco paste to the chalkboard paper here and there to give some depth to the sign. Glued the two clothespins down to the sign...
"welcome" banner is so adorable created with canvas paper sheet that I ripped a piece of cut into squares stamped the word "welcome" using black Stazon. I cut little bigger squares from the Kraft E-Flute sheet stitched them all together on my sewing machine then added to the clothespins. I just love the raw material look against the chalkboard paper.
Added some flowers and glimmer misted seam binding and fibers from the slate grey burlap...the word "home" is written in actual chalk!!!
I just love this little sign and it's ready to greet guest into our home.
Hope you all enjoy, hugs Peggy Lee
