A Happy Moment (upcycled wood block)


Hello all you Makers! Desiree, here again to share my latest Craftwell make!
This one is very special to me, as the picture which is the star of this project has some of my most precious loved ones in it! They are my precious mom, Lana, my Aunt Linda, and my Aunt Sherry, who sadly gained her angel wings last November.
Anyways, onto the pics of the project and the other details! Just had to share a bit about my loved ones first!

After being inspired by the pic of my mom and aunts, I knew that I wanted to make something featuring it! It must be girly AND it MUST express happiness! I decided to upcycle a recent good will find. A 4in. x 4 in. wood block. I painted it white and after drying, I cover it with some FolkArt Extreme Glitter paint. After the layer was dried I used some Prima Effect Paste in Unicorn from Art Extravagance. Once that dried I sealed it with a clear aerosol sealer. I also used some Precision Craft Glue from Bearly Art!

I had to feature my cute SNAP Machine and the dies she would be cutting for me. Right?! I decided to use the Craftwell Happy die, which has been in my stash in forever and it's a go-to for sure! I also used a die by Anna Griffin, that I found on-line recently and waited to get! It is one of her pretty pocket dies, and I love it! For this project though, once it was cut out I had to mid the die cut a bit. I was happy with the end result.

I used my eBrush by Craftwell, of course! To do some shading to my die cuts. I did some distressing to my background paper, "happy" element, and to the bow.
For the happy banner element, I traced and hand cut an inset background piece from a scrap of paper.

I pieced together and adhered my distressed background piece, and my pocked piece that I modded.
I realized my little distressed bow needed an accent piece, so I got out these adorable dot embellishments I have had FOREVER. Found them in my stash, I remember buying them from Michael's YEARS ago!! Heheheh. I love them! 

I was wanting more for this project! To the stash I went! I found these old school K & Company daisies, and these adorable blinged out hearts that I got from hobby lobby a while back.
These made my heart so happy! I did not use that pink dot however. On the bow was just enough of
those I thought.

Here is the final product. I kind of love the end result! I more than love this precious picture, and the moment of happiness that was caught! I am so very blessed to have such wonderful women in my family! I am so blessed! I hope you find yourself blessed! I also hope you have been inspired!

Please remember to come back, check out what me and my fellow design team members are up to! I hope you have an amazing day!!
