Happy Make-It Monday!
Today I'm having so much fun playing with image transfers on wood, and turning wood blocks into story boards! It's so cool when you can turn an image into a mixed media centerpiece! It would make a really great gift for a First Birthday Party, and is such a meaningful and adorable way to preserve a memory!
smooth wood blocks/slices
matte Mod Podge
images printed on computer paper
patterned cardstock sheets
baker's twine string
For the front of this hinged story board, I used Mod Podge to glue the cardstock sheet to the wood, and then used pop-up dots to have the "This Little Monster" piece stick out.
In order to transfer an image to wood, all you need to do is apply a generous layer of Mod Podge to your surface, and image side down, place your paper on to the wood and allow it to full dry for at least an hour.
After the Mod Podge is dry, using water and your fingers, rub off the paper so that only the image remains! (Keep in mind that all of your images and any words will be mirror images of themselves.)
Attach hinges to 2 pieces of flat wood slices in order to create a book-like centerpiece!
Embellish your story board with a washi tape banner using the baker's twine, and some fun 3d stickers that add more texture and POP to your story. Use your original image as inspiration to choose the theme and colors of your papers and stickers. For this image I used the rustic vintage feeling of the wagon and outdoors, with the color palette of the balloons.
Have fun transferring images and have a great week!
Love, Bethany @ Enchanted Lake
