6/26 Magnetic Note Box Makeover

I got this magnetic note box to put on the side of your refrigerator for a quarter at a garage sale this spring. There was a cute/country kind of image on the front . . . so not me, but I knew it had potential for a remake.

I cut a piece of glossy white cardstock and brayered it all over with Barely Banana. Then, I brayered it Pumpkin Pie through the bottom and middle. My last step to prep my background was to sponge some Really Rust along the bottom. This technique is called Brayered Sky. It makes the most beautiful backgrounds and you can use a lot of different colors . . . but I tend to the oranges. I guess I like sunsets.

The set I used is called Wild Fowl. It's a retired SU set that I purchased to make cards for my dad. He is an avid duck hunter! I will be reminded of him every time I add something to my grocery list. This will go in my kitchen for now and maybe eventually to our cabin in WI. It will fit in well with our north woods/nature theme. Oh, and by the way, this remake came about because the challenge at SCS today for Ways to Use It was to find a way to use birds.

Supplies I used:

Stamps: Wild Fowl
Paper: Glossy White, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Barely Banana, Pumpkin Pie, Really Rust, Basic Brown
Accessories: Photo Corner Punch, non SU ribbon

Hi Kay!
Remember me? I dropped the ball on our card sending, but I've got one earmarked for you now! Pretty project - I've got to work on my Brayered Sky technique. A little more practice and I should be good to go!

I'm playing a tag game and thought of you - thought I'd send some of my stamping friends your way for a visit. If you'd like to play along, check out my "brand new" blog for the details!
