Life's an Adventure!

Our new Maker Mondays on Facebook are a great time to check in with Amy Howard and walk through our newest kits. This week, Amy shows us how to use the Life’s an Adventure kit using our new Adventure stencil — a spring and summer favorite!

Materials You'll Need

For this project, you’ll need the Life’s an Adventure Maker Monday kit, which includes:


How to Create Your Adventurous Art

1. Apply the English Walnut Gel Stain to the frame of your surface using your sponge brush. Wait 30 minutes for it to dry.

2. Tape the inside edge of your surface to protect it from the Rescue Restore Paint.

 

3. Paint the inside of your surface with Southern Gentleman Rescue Restore Paint.

4. Cut "The Adventure Begins" portion of your stencil out and apply it to the center of your map image.

5. Apply Preaching to the Choir ChalkArt to the stencil.

6. Remove the stencil, wash, and lay flat to dry with the adhesive side facing up.

7. Cut your printed map image down to the desired size. 

8. Adhere the image to the center of your surface using double-sided tape. Pro tip: Apply tea or coffee to your image (before adhering it to your surface) to make it look more aged!

Of course, Amy gives a ton of other tips for using this Maker Monday kit on Facebook, so make sure to tune into the video. She also shows you a few ways you can use this Adventure stencil so you can make everything from shirts to glasses and more.

For creative types, hearing the words “discipline” or “structure” can make you hesitant. After all, many artistic personalities thrive in uncontrolled environments, right? You may do some of your best creative DIY and crafting work when the mood strikes, but staying true to yourself doesn’t mean you should totally disregard organization, either. A daily agenda is a powerful tool you can use to build your creative business beyond your wildest expectations.
