This week we are hosting a mega-cool truly international event! All friends at Stampendous, DecoArt, Princeton Brushes, and inspired by Willow Wolfe are joining to show what you can do with stamps and acrylic paint. You'll be amazed how great these two craft items work together to make amazing things!
Of course, there are prizes! DecoArt is sending three sets of their Media Fluid Acrylics, Princeton Artist Brushes, through Willow Wolfe, is supplying a Select Brush Set and a Catalyst Wedge, and Stampendous will be adding a Stampendous Creative Palette. What a fantastic selection of crafty goodness!

We'll draw three winners with U.S. Mailing Addresses. BUT because we have so many international players this time, DecoArt has agreed to mail out three nice sample packages to international commenters as well - so make sure to hop and comment!
Now onto my project today. I've altered an old frame I found in a charity shop and created a coffee themed wall art for my living room.
Here is the picture 'before':
I disassembled the nautical insert (and kept it for another project) and painted the wooden backing with Americana Chalkboard Paint. Then I added some stamping and heat embossed it with White Detail Embossing Powder. The stamps I used were: Perfectly Clear Elegant Borders, Coffee Talk and cling Kettle On.
Then I painted the frame with Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint in Lace and distressed it in place with sanding paper.
My hubby and I are both big coffee addicts and this chalkboard sign sums it all up for us:
And Put The Kettle On
And Pour Me Another Cup
I'm Having Another Cup
Happiness Is a Good Cup Of COFFEE
