Plaid Friday and New Schedule

Hi Guys! Hope this finds you all well after the BIG Election results! Whether we agree or not on who won, I hope we can all come together and continue to make our country great. My family and I have been fighting upper respiratory infections for weeks and I am so ready to feel well again.

I have decided to change up my YouTube videos and posts a bit so it is more streamlined and that I can keep up with a bit better so I am going to do art videos on Monday-Wednesday and Fridays and if I am able I will Vlog in between. Fridays will be my Plaid Fridays where I will be sharing all of their wonderful products and different projects using them.

Today’s Project is a wall hanging using a Paper Mache Deer Head, Folkart Painted Finishes in Dark Concrete and Light Concrete, a bit of Light Moss and mounting it on a piece of textured metal. I love mixing old and new looking items to make a art piece and I cant wait to give this to my husband for his office!

Below are the steps I used to make the wall hanging and believe it or not it didn’t take long at all! You can use MANY different substrates with the Painted Finishes (even cardboard!) and at the end of my post I have my YouTube video showing how I did this project.


Shake your Dark Concrete Painted Finishes and then proceed to paint it all over the piece you are using. I used a big paint brush. You want the paint and texture to be crumbly like gravel and stone. Let dry picture-475




Once dry take light concrete in Painted Finishes and DRY BRUSH over the areas where you want it a bit lighter and some more texture and variation in color.  I also used a small bit of Light Moss in Painted Finishes to add some more texture and color.  Let Dry.



Once dry I used my Delta SOBO Premium Craft and Fabric glue and glued the deer on to the Metal I chose, and there you go–ALL DONE!!!


I absolutely LOVE how this came out! This is as close as my husband will ever get to hanging any animal head in our home! I added a wall hanger on the back and it is ready to be hung in his office. I really love these painted finishes because they can change the look of something as simple as a piece of cardboard.
