Spring Wood Fun With Michaels: Gray and White Photo Prop Board


Michaels Spring Wood 2015 Photo Prop Board

Disclosure: I wrote this post as part of a paid campaign with Plaid Crafts, Michaels and Blueprint Social. The opinions in this post are my own.

I have been meaning to make something to help me with taking pictures of jewelry projects and when I recently had the opportunity to work with Michaels, Plaid, and The Blueprint social, this idea came together. Michaels has a wide assortment of unpainted Spring wood pieces that are a perfect blank canvas.

For this project I used:
  • Large scallop edge frame ( 11x14 opening)
  • Plaid Folk Art paints in Steel Gray and Titanium White
  • Plaid Folk Art stencil “Ditsy Floral”
  • Paintbrush
  • Paint Spouncers
  • Recollections Gray and White Floral scrapbook paper
  • Washi tape sheets
  • Mod Podge ( Matte)
  • Foam Core
  • Fabric
  • Cotton Batting
  • Trim
The washi tape sheets, fabric, batting and trim I had on hand. All other supplies are available at Michaels.

Step 1:
Paint surface with two coats of Steel Gray paint. The picture below shows one coat and I debated about whether to add the second because I liked the almost stained effect of one.

Step 2:
After applying the second coat, I used the floral stencil to add some detail on opposite corners of the frame with the white paint using the spouncers :

Step 3:
Using the spouncers, I randomly added dots of white around the frame and tore pieces of the scrapbook paper and applied as shown with Mod Podge.  I added torn pieces of the watshi sheets and then sealed the whole thing with another coat of Mod Podge.

Additional Steps:
To fill the center of the frame I cut foam core to size, covered with cotton batting and canvas drop cloth. I probably should have ironed the drop cloth but I’m sure the wrinkles will smooth out :)

I adhered this to the frame from the underside, attaching with strong carpet tape. To finish, I hot glued upholstery trim around the covered foam core.
