Painted Wood Veneer Layout

Saturday, June 17, 2017

I have a new layout and process video to share with you today! I found a spot of free time and wanted to make as many videos as I can before we move. Here's one!

Raise your hand if you have more wood veneer than you know what to do with?! MEMEMEME! I have a whole box of 'em and so for this layout I decided to give a few of them a makeover by painting them for the "dipped paint" look and then use them as fun embellishments on a travel-themed page.
I started by digging through said wood veneer stash and pulling out all of the pieces that went with travel - maybe a few things were a stretch like butterflies and cats and cows... but hey, it's alllll good! With my chosen wood veneer I pulled out a roll of washi tape and covered a section of each wood veneer. Then I picked colors of Deco Art crafter's acrylic paint that matched my Take Me Away collection and spent some time giving each piece three coats. The paint dries quickly and has great coverage. Once dry I peeled off the washi and ta-da! Fun new embellishments! It's amazing what paint can do to things whether it's wood veneer, furniture, hair(???)...
Figuring out what to do with all of the wood veneer took some thinking, I wanted to use all of them since I had just spent a couple hours making them, so the best way I could think of was to use them in a large shape and a geotag seemed to fit with the travel theme. The layout came together and evolved from there which you can watch in the process video below.
I hope you are inspired to try painting your wood veneer and giving them new life!
