Graduation Sign

Hi everyone, I am participating in the Designer Crafts Connection blog hop this month.  And this month we are working with Mod Podge.

My son just graduated from college so I wanted to create a graduation sign to document his accomplishment.

I received a nice selection of Mod Podge projects to use, including a set of Mod Podge ® Decoupage Tracing Templates.  I selected the letters I wanted, then using them as stencils, I cut them out of Rinea Foils in Glossy Gold/Gold.

I used my Proxxon Delta Sander to sand the wood panel then painted it with FolkArt ® Brushed Metal™ Acrylic Paint in Dark Grey.  

I wanted some dimension on the panel, so I added some molding paste with The Crafter's Workshop Stencil.  Once dry I used Mod Podge ® Brush Set, Decoupage with  Mod Podge ® Ultra Matte Chalk Finish as a sealer over the panel.

Once dry, I brushed on a 2nd layer of  Mod Podge ® Ultra Matte Chalk Finish  and placed the letters on the panel.  Mod Podge ® Ultra Matte Chalk Finish can also be used as glue.  Once dry, I painted on another layer of Mod Podge ® Ultra Matte Chalk Finish to seal the letters.

To finish, I die cut a graduation cap from cardstock and added Whisker Graphics Black Diamond Twine.  I wanted some dimension so I added pop dots to the cap and placed it above the letter A.  Several flourish stickers were scattered about and sealed in place.

Thanks to Plaid Crafts for supplying the products used in this project.
