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
Thanks for stopping by.....Happy Chalkin!
