Thanks for joining me today! Life is so good when it’s shared with family. Every year my husband and youngest son Remington (who is a 2nd year midget goalie) make a rink in our back yard. Remington loves being out there; he spends so much time shovelling it, maintaining it and flooding it and I just love when everyone comes over to our ‘community rink’ to skate. As soon as we get those little boys on skates we’ll have enough players to actually play a game! Haha!
I simply stained the Victoria Lace Frame and the Intersecting Circles with Walnut Distress Stain.
I was going to add some UTEE to the Happy Holiday words but after I stained them with Walnut Distress Stain I really liked how the wood grain showed through.
For the stars I started by misting them with Heidi Swap Color Shine. It was a bit to shimmering for my liking so I lightly sanded the top of them taking away the sheen. But then I found them too bright so that’s when I decided to add a little bit of glitter with Walnut Distress Stickles. I was really happy with the final look.
That’s what I love about chipboard….keep playing until your happy!
