Daydream and Sunflowers




Daydream and Sunflowers, now that's a great combination!  Below is a picture of my Sunflowers, which did not make it to a video only because there was way too many layers and drying time.  Not hard, just took some time.






Actually, I had a lot of fun with this, it just took awhile.  But then I am a happy & s - l - o - w crafter.  LOL.  I just enjoy it and take my time.  The transfer I used is 'You Are My Sunshine'  This was put on our new Greyson 18 1/2 by 24 1/2.  The flowers have two layers.  I only used the entire second layer flower transfer on two of them.  The rest I used the basic flower transfer, waited until it dried and then chalked the middle only of the layered flower transfer.  I hope that made sense.  Below I have a picture of the transfer, which will help you get the idea. I used several different chalks in yellow and Orange shades.  I used:  Honeydew (for the stem), Brick, Canary, Pumpkin, Lemon and Coral.  I blended many of them with at least two colors (just laid some chalk down and smoothed over with a squeegee)  You Are My Sunshine...love the song, the flowers everything! 

  Here is a picture of the transfer.  The middle flower is the one I used everywhere.  2 of them I used the entire 2nd layer with the outline (Top left flower).  The rest I used the middle only.





And now to my Daydream:




Fast, simple and easy & I love the results.  I have this on my FB header page...go check it out at:  https://www.facebook.com/CraftingWithCherie/ 
I just took a piece of plywood, cut it to size.  I then whitewashed it (white paint mixed with water).  Once dry I distressed it with walnut stain and clear minwax using a lint free rag and dragged across until I had the effect I wanted.  Then I used Cool Pool and Whip Cream Acrylic Paint and spread it across with my roller.  Wiped off the edges because I wanted it to have the look of a frame.  Now onto my Chalk Couture Transfer 'Daydream' which I used the chalk Paste Navy & Black
