.:Guest Blogger - Amanda @ Every Crafty Endeavor:.

Hello Sumo's Sweet Stuff Readers!

I am so excited to be here guest posting for Summer while she is out with her darling baby taking it easy! I love Summer and all her fun ideas so I am flattered to be here today and teach you something!

My name is Amanda and I am the creative mind behind “Every Crafty Endeavor.” I am married to a dashingly handsome, hard-working man named Spencer and we have a little boy named Quinn! I work part time as a writer on a marketing team for an Engineering Company and craft in my “spare time.” I have been a “mommy blogger” for a couple years – and started Every Crafty Endeavor to showcase some crafty ideas that I have done. I love to craft and cook and I have lots of fun ideas and tutorials that I love to share. I am constantly thinking about things to cook, make or sew, accessories that pop, ways to decorate my home and things to photograph.
If you stop by and visit me you will find projects and recipes like:

Today I would like to do a tutorial about how
I made Glazed Wall Art for my bathroom.
But really - you can use it in any room!

I needed something so fun for the walls and I wanted a lot of color
to make the room pop a little.
First: Gather your supplies!
You will need:
  • 12x12 scrapbook Paper
  • 12x12 Plywood
  • "Pour-On" Glaze
  • Spray Adhesive
  • Glue Gun
  • Ribbon
  • Plastic Cups

Second: Spray the back of your paper with the adhesive
and glue them to the plywood.
(hint:) I had my hubby cut up a sheet of plywood in advance.
We found it in the lumber section at Home Depot and
one small sheet made 8 12x12 pieces.
I am making some without the glaze for my spare bedroom.

Third: Cover your table and set the wood up on plastic cups.
Make sure your cups are all they way underneath the wood,
so if you do happen to drip a little, it doesn't stick to the cups.

Fourth: Mix and Mix and Mix your Pour-On.
This is the same stuff you use for the Glazed Washer Necklaces.

Fifth: Pour it onto your paper and spread it evenly around.
I used the back of a plastic spoon, but you can use a Popsicle stick too.

(Hint:) The glaze will turn your paper a little bit see-through -
it's not big deal unless the back has really funky designs on it.
Most scrapbook paper has a plain color or white back which work better
than those with dots or other things.
Three of my papers had little designs on the back - Two looked really awesome!
One - went in the garbage.
Sixth: Let them dry for a day or two.
Seventh: Flip your art work over and measure 6 inches to find the middle.

Eighth: Hot glue your ribbon on the back.

Ninth: Hang them up and enjoy!!

When you have a minute, please stop by and say hello and see what other crafts I have been working on. I am always looking for new ladies to blog swap with and fun crafty ideas for my Friday Favorites.
