I really enjoy making signs for around the house.  It is such an easy way to give some character to any space, yet can easily be changed out with the seasons or holidays!

So, when I was challenged to create a project for the Imagine Artist In Resident design team, I couldn’t think of a better project than a glittery wall sign for our laundry room… and I may have made an identical sign for the bathroom in the basement as well!

For this project, I used wood pallets I found at Michaels Craft Store, while the rest of the supplies came from Imagine 2017 product catalog!  I used:

  • Turquoise Iridescent Creative Medium
  • Imagine Palette Knife
  • Sheer Shimmer Spritz
  • All-Purpose Ink in Blue Bayou
  • Fantastyx

This project does has a lot of dry time, due to the creative medium and all-purpose ink needed time to dry.  Otherwise, it was a rather quick project to complete.  I think that is why I completed two for our basement doors!

Another trick for adding the creative medium is to use the back of the palette knife.  Because of how the knife is curved, I used the back to scoop the medium from the jar and for rubbing it all over the pallet.  Then, I removed some of the creative medium from the breaks in the boards with the tip of the palette knife.

The signs add such a nice touch to the space that I updated for the One Room Challenge back in the spring!!
