Altered Wooden Shapes Blog Hop

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month we are highlighting the wood embellishments that Close to My Heart offers. This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique.  If you are coming from Michelle Loncar’s Blog, you are on the right track!

Wood shapes are great because you can use them in their natural state or use a number of different color options to customize them to fit your project. For the wood images in this layout, the title is colored with the TriBlend marker, and the stars are colored with a shimmer brush. I do not use yellow very often but I am loving the bright color of theLemonade Shimmer Brush and it adds a nice pop of color!

Supply List:  Party Time Paper Packet + Sticker Sheet, Fancy Borders Thin Cuts, White Daisy Cardstock, Nectarine Cardstock, Sapphire Glitter Paper, Birthday Borders stamp set, Nectarine Ink, Wood Stars, Love Today Wood Titles, Lemonade Shimmer Brush, True Blue Shades TriBlend Marker, and Black Journaling Pen (.03).

Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue onto Darlys Recker’s Blog where you will find some additional artwork highlighting this technique!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought of my variation and happy hopping!


  1. I love this layout and the use of the shimmer brush & marker to alter the wood.

  2. Love this layout and I love all the different wood shapes!

  3. That pop of yellow is so pretty (and I am not normally a yellow fan)! I like how you still see the wood texture but also have the bright shimmer.

  4. The lemonade looks so great with this layout!

  5. I would not have thought you’d get that much color from the yellow shimmer brush. Good to know; TFS!

  6. Lovely layout, love the colors and the shimmer colored stars and title.

  7. LOVE to see layouts on these hops and LOVE your layout and those BRIGHT stars and wonderful title!!! TFS, Wendy!
