Is it a pet rock??? paper weight?? garden decor? Well it could be whatever you want it to be!!
Here's what was used:
fine point marker
|I used a hummingbird sticker and placed it where I wanted. |
Luckily this rock was smooth and had a semi flat bottom, so it was perfect.
(the rock was washed and air dried the night before)
|Using my fine Sharpie I carefully traced around the foam sticker. |
(please excuse Ms. SausageHands Mcgee) I have little fat fingers.....lol!!
|After carefully tracing around I then removed the sticker!! |
I was thinking about leaving it on and continue.
|Here is my handy-dandy little brush that I used. I just squeezed a couple of drops of the color that I chose onto the paper plate. (this is not pictured)|
|I carefully painted in my tracing. That tiny little pink dot is where I'll paint the eye.|
|All done....well with the painting part!|
|Mod-podge time!! ☺ I cut out some pages of Lilacs from a magazine and arranged the pieces on the rock. I put some on the side like the hummingbird was taking the sap and I put it along the back side too.|
|I applied about 2 coats of Mod-Podge. I left it to dry over night since I was too tired to sit there and watch it dry!! lol!|
|Pretty cute huh?!?! Since the bottom is pretty flat, I cut out a oval shape from the felt and just hot glued it on. Just in case it stays in the house as decoration. I don't want any scratches on my furniture!|
|Sorry for the blurry pic!! I wanted to see it near my plants by the window.|
Well take a stroll outdoors and see what you can find.......let a rock inspire you!
