Keep Out!

Hi, I have a little "pink" project to share today.
I love this LOTV image - It's my party!
It reminds me of gorgeous girl Mackenzie,
She's 9 and has a bit of an attitude lol!
So I thought I'd make her this little door hanger for her room,
She loves it and does see the funnyside ~ Thankfully!

It's quite simple to make:
I got a cheap plaque 50p from our local craft outlet, 
but I'm sure chip board could work too.
I painted the plaque with dark brown acrylic paint,
let that dry then covered with a thin layer of PVA glue,
before this dried I went over with cream acrylic paint and left to dry naturally. 
(you can use a heat gun, but be careful as the paint bubble and blisters)
This gives a crackle effect, I then rubbed it all over with Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet Dis
Cover with paper and embellshments of your choice.

Add some string for hanging and finish off with a little bow.
