Blank Slate Wooden Pieces
Blank Slate Wooden Pieces

Hobby Lobby just got some amazing new products in the jewelry department. Blank Slate is a line of unfinished wooden pieces, canvas, lockets, and other embellishable items.  I saw these when one of the lies I work with brought them to show me. She thought they would be right up my alley. She was right, I LOVED these! I want one of every single kind of wooden pieces that we carry.  I figured I would start with the start with the butterfly. I finally opened the package today after having it a few days.

4-1-14 (4)I decided to give them a light coat of white paint, just as a primer.   I then added a bit of teal paint for some color.  Next was some stamping. I got a Tim Holtz rubber stamp for Christmas that I had yet to use, I know, what is wrong with me? Not using a supply for three months? Inconceivable!

4-1-14 (6)Back to the stamp. It’s an unmounted stamp, and I don’t have a stamp block, so I had to improvise.  I inked the stamp and laid it face up on my desk and then put the wooden butterfly on top and pressed down. It worked pretty good!  I painted and inked the other side as well, so if the butterfly flipped over the back side wold not be blank.  I then added some dangly charms, a crystal and some beads.

I am in love with the way this turned out.  I cannot wait to get more Blank Slate wood items to embellish.  Stay tuned to see which one I play with next!
