I picked up a wooden plaque at Goodwill for $1.99. It wasn't new, but it had never been painted or stained. I used DecoArt Poodle Skirt Pink for the base. Then I used my zig zag/chevron painter's tape. What? You've not heard of patterned painters tape?? Well read on sistahs...I'm giving away a few rolls at the end of this entry!!
I wanted to use this tape on furniture...I was dying to do a chevron piece, but it's too small...it just doesn't look right. But for a sign, it was perfect. I did three rows of tape and painted DecoArt Slate Gray over everything. I love the way pink and gray shine together!
Next, I printed out the quote with Microsoft Word (I know...I'm fancy, huh?) in 130 font. I used a pen to trace the letters (over the paper) on the board. By applying a lot of pressure, it made indentations on the board enough for me to then trace with a paint pen.
Here it is...my favorite quote ever!
What a perfect motto for teen girls and women everywhere!
Ok, quickly...on to the giveaway. This patterned tape canNOT be found in stores or online. I found some at a yard sale last summer. I found out the name by searching google (Agapo Tape). I contacted the owner, who, although she doesn't do retail any more, she sent me a box of tape to give away! I'm going to pick four winners....one roll each! There's rick-rack, chevron/zig zag, faux bamboo and one more I can't remember. Please be a follower and leave a comment telling me you are AND what you'd use the tape for! Giveaway will end Tuesday, September 20th at noon! Good luck!
Thanks for stopping by!
