Yesterday I shared how I put a new twist on the Easy to Paint line available at AC Moore and Michaels Craft stores. Today I am sharing an idea with one of their stencils.
Step 1: I found this framed artwork at a thrift store and loved how the frame was deep on the backside. It could easily be converted into a tiered tray or with handles attached to ends a serving tray.
Step 2: I painted the entire piece white and then marked a grid system on the diagonal using my stencil as a guide to how large the squares should be.
Step 3: I used my red and green Plaid paints to fill in the squares. I alternated the stencil in the red squares....
Step 4: and used a painting tool to add texture to the green paint.
Once it was dry I pulled off the tape to reveal the patchwork design!
It's a fun way to add color and pattern for any season or holiday!
