Hello lovely CSI readers! I am so excited to be back here again!!
In case you don’t know me, I’m Ashley, and I blog over at Cherished Bliss
I am a mother to two of the most beautiful kids EVER and married to the love of my life!! How do I know he is the love of my life? The other day he used his lunch break to meet me at Hobby Lobby and watch the kids while I shopped… he even went inside with me! Yup, he’s pretty amazing! Oh and right now while I’m typing up this post, he’s putting the dishes away for me! Ok, enough about my amazing husband ; ) My family is truly my inspiration for all that I do though! So… I guess we aren’t done talking about my amazing husband because he was part of the inspiration for what I am going to show you today! : )
“How He Loves Us” Printable and Wooden Block Art
I originally saw this idea on Shanty 2 Chic. I pinned it immediately and knew exactly what I wanted to put on there! Here is their version
I chose the lyrics from David Crowder’s “How He Loves Us” which was originally written by John Mark McMillan. John Mark’s version actually says “and Heaven meets Earth like a sloppy wet kiss” and while I actually prefer his version of the song, that just didn’t seem like it would be pretty to read walking through the house. Anyways, my husband is a worship leader and this is one of his favorite songs to sing, and it is one my favorite songs that he sings…. and I have always loved that part of the song, so thus why I chose these lyrics. : )
Here is how I made my version
– 2×6 wood scrap (mine measures 6×9”
– scrapbook paper
– modge podge
– foam brush
– this printable
1. Cut your wood piece out to the size you wish. Mine is 6×9”. Then stain or paint it the color you want.
2. Then print out the printable onto scrapbook paper of your choice. The printable is 6×9” as well, I just cut on the inside of the border so that the wood showed behind the paper.
3.Once you cut it out, using your foam brush, paint a layer of the modge podge on the wood block, then lay your paper on top of it. Smooth out any bubbles and let dry a few minutes. Then paint another layer on top of the paper to seal it.
4. Let dry and you can do a second coat if you want, I just did the one though.
Easy right? And you can make any printable you want, I made mine in picnik (which I am so sad to see go)
A huge thank you to Dee for having me over again! It is always such a pleasure!!
