Today's Craft Project!







I started out with a photo of my friends home.



I then took it to Kinkos and made it a black and white copy of it. You could do sepia too.



I brought it home and printed the lettering on it through my computer. I chose, "There's no place like home for the holidays"



I cut a piece of pine wood to size and painted it black.



When dry, I distressed the edges.



I then decupaged my image onto the painted wood.



Using a fine sanding block, I went over the whole piece, roughing it up a little to add to that vintage look.



When dry, I added a little antiquing glaze to make it look even more shabby chic.



Voila! A customized plaque for my friend, of her house, to display for the holidays!

So you printed the photo on regular paper and then deco'd it to the wood.

How is it tan looking and not white? Is that from the glaze?
