Hello everyone. I’m so glad being here on GHTR today to show you one of my easy project tutorials I’ve made recently.My name is Lou and I live in Frankfurt, Germany. I have a blog named Happy Serendipity which is all about crafty inspiration, handmade markets, I have a DIY tutorial each week and a free digital download as well. Being a sewing addict I have an Etsy shop – named HappySerendipity as well. Please stop by and have a look. I will donate 50% of all purchases to the German Red Cross these days to support the victims of Japan. Thank you.
– Slices of birch tree (available in craft stores or flower shops, I found these at Dawanda)
– Acrylic paint or crayons or sharpies
– Printout of artwork
– Tracing paper
Trace the artwork on the wood by laying the tracing paper between the draft and the wood.
Use a pencil to draw the lines.
After tracing everything it should look like this.
Now you can start to paint. For some I drew a black outline with a black sharpie before painting but that’s
totally up to you.
I used either acrylic paint and crayons.
The final result looks like this.
you can even use them as coasters!
