Adding Personality to Projects using re·design!

Do you love to add your own personal touch to your projects? Today, we are featuring CrysDawna of Bella Renovare and how she added dimensional pattern to her thrift store find using re·design tools. Her pieces are always filled with amazing character and color and she was kind enough to share with all of us, some of her techniques when it comes to creating one-of-a-kind pieces…

CrysDawna  added some dimension on a few areas that just needed a little something. So she got out the re·design  Cornelle Garden  Stick and Style Stencil Roll (638344) and some  Dixie Belle  Mud and got to work! She began by adding the strips to the panels on the sides of the door. Unroll, stick and trim to fit if needed.

She then added painters tape around the stencil roll and began applying the Mud over the design. Here, she used a plain scraper to scoop out and spread over the stencil roll.

After it has completely dried, you can then add glaze, wax, or whatever medium your heart desires! The results are going to be amazing no matter what you choose.

So even though this process has been explained throughout this post, CrysDawna created a video on her  YouTube  channel too. Some of us just need to see the actual process—-we get it—-and here you go:
