Valentine Projects with Dixie Belle

Valentine Projects with Dixie Belle

It's January and cold, icy and snowy so thought I would spend a bit of time making some fun wooden signs for valentines next month.  I made a bunch at one time to try out some different painting ideas.  

Using sign boards like these....

I covered a table and took out some Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint in Barn Red and Soft Pink.  Honkey Tonk Red would have been nice too but I didn't want to open up too many reds.  

I gave each board a light sand with a sanding sponge because they were a bit rough.  Then got started with a coat of Barn Red...

Then after waiting 15 min I did some blending with soft pink and taped up a diamond pattern on one just to try something different.

After 15 min they were dry and ready to decorate.  You could hand paint, use stickers, decoupage or your vinyl cutter to print out a design.  I printed out some designs and applied to the signs.

I applied one coat of Gator Hide to each sign and they were done.  

The Kissing Booth was my favorite!
