Ever since I started dreaming of the future lavender harvest I hope to have, thoughts of lavender keep creeping into my mind, so I had to do something lavenderish (spell check says that isn’t a word – it should be!) I’m going to think positive that I’ll have lots of lovely lavender soon, but in the meantime, I made a new lavender sign for my obsession.
I grabbed an old board in my stash, and put a light coat of light paint on it. I did it a little heavier than dry brushing, but not so heavy that it is solid white. I left all the edges of the wood alone, because I wanted it to look like an old sign. I asked my hubby to pick me up some lavender craft paint on his way home from work, and I whipped up a stencil to add the word. I lightly distressed it it, so the word looks a bit worn, then used E600 to glue an old little bottle onto the board. I had just a few sprigs from the few little plants I bought last year to put in the bottle.
You can’t read the words on the bottle, but it actually says “motor oil” on it! You have to get up close to read that though, and I like the raised text on the bottle, so I didn’t mind. Since I only used a tiny bit of the lavender craft paint, I’m going to need to think up more lavender-inspired projects to use it on!
