Creative Blocks

My decorating style includes using fun vintage children’s blocks to spell out various words that might celebrate a holiday or add whimsy to a shelf.  Words like ArT or CReaTiVe are even more interesting when you mix the sizes and colors. My 2015 blocks combine old paper and gold tones to create a vintage look.

 

Directions:

1. Paint blocks with white craft paint to seal the block
2. Using a trowel & inkblusher cover block with Creative Medium Metallic Gold, let dry

3. Trim vintage paper to just smaller than the block
4. Adhere paper to sides of block with Creative Medium Metallic Gold, add a few layers of Creative Medium to intensify the color

5. Once dry, stamp numbers/letters on all sides of blocks with StazOn Jet Black
6. Using a fantastix and StazOn, fill in any spaces left by stamp
7. Add final layers of Creative Medium Metallic Gold
