Broad Stripes and Bright Stars Patriotic Wood Slice!

 Broad Stripes and Bright Stars Patriotic Wood Slice!
We had a huge windstorm in May and ended up with lots of logs!
I decided to put all those free materials to good use!
 Wood slice painting art is so much fun!
 First.
Bake wood slice in the oven for 1 hour at the lowest setting.
Letting it bake over time helps prevent it from splitting.
 I didn't sand it or smooth it off.
The paint makes it nice and smooth enough to work with!
 I used Plaid Apple Barrel paints.
Paint a layer of white paint, leaving a nice edge.
 Then use a pencil and write it on SUPER lightly!
Then follow along with black paint and a paintbrush.
Brush Calligraphy is so much fun!
It's the greatest way to add pizzazz to any project!
 It's easy to do with a paintbrush too!
If you aren't that confident...just trace it on with pencil and fill it in with paint.
 Then I added some fun pinwheel stars.
 2 tones for extra depth!
 Red, White and Blue awesomeness!
 It's the perfect patriotic art piece for the entry way, front porch or even hang it on a wall!
