{Inspirational Sundays} The Family Proclamation


 
 Today is a Sweet Sunday.  I am THRILLED to be sharing with you this SUPER fun project that incorporates cool decorating and something very special to hang in your home.  I created these for our Sweet Young Women to give their parents for Christmas this year.  It is an unbelievable project that has hardly cost any money and personally I am in LOVE with it.




 I started with a board that is 9" wide and 11" long.  I got these boards at Home Depot in their scrap section AND they cut them for me!  I ended up with 16 cut boards for $4.00.  It seems unbelievable!  
 I put Mod Podge on one side and stuck down the Proclamation that I am providing.  I printed it off using my tissue paper technique that you can find here.
I then painted all of the sides of the board blue, obviously my choice of color but you can pick anything you want.  I brought the paint up on top of the paper SLIGHTLY.  I didn't paint it before I put the tissue paper down because I wanted the texture of the wood showing through.  
 When dry sand slightly and rub with an ink pad for an aged look.  

I finished it up with several coats of Mod Podge.  This project turned out amazing. I hope you are inspired!
