Holiday Celebrations and Festive Distressing with Ranger Paints!

Ready to be festively distressed once again? The Dream Team have been playing with Ranger's Distress Paints, and are ready to inspire you to be distressed as well...paint distressed that is! Dreamweaver Stencils are the perfect choice to mix with all things festively distressed, as nothing shows off color and texture better than great designs. By following our hop and leaving love along the way, you have the opportunity to win a great prize package including five Ranger Distress Paints (thank you Patti and Ranger!) and five Dreamweaver Stencils! Here's the lineup for today, including our November Guest Designer:


Before I get into today's post, I'd like to congratulate the winner of our October challenge, KT-FIT KITTY who's card can be viewed HERE. Send me an email with your address and the stencil you'd love to win at lynell@dreamweaverstencils.com. We had some wonderful creations linked for our October challenge. Thanks to everyone who participated. If you haven't played with our challenges, you can find the info on how to link HERE.

Today is our first posting day featuring our new monthly challenge, "Holiday Celebrations", and for the entire month we will be demonstrating ways to use Beacon Adhesives' entire line of products with Dreamweaver to create special projects in home decor and gifts of love. Here's what I'm posting via Pam Hornschu:

Pam here! I happened to pick up this runner on clearance for $3 at Marshall's, and knew precisely what I planned to do with it.

Using the new Oak Leaves stencil, I taped it down over the runner, and using stencil brushes, I pounced the Ranger Distress Paint colors over the design. Since the paints come in a dabber bottle, I removed the cap and poured out a small amount of each color (Rusty Hinge, Weathered Wood, Broken China, Frayed Burlap, Gathered Twigs, and Peeled Paint) onto a clear acrylic block as my palette. I repeated the stenciling process several times over the runner. To ensure that the colors stay put, I brushed some Beacon Fast Finish over the stenciled areas, which dries quick and stays flexible.

This project was so simple, it took me only about 30 minutes to complete. I love the colors of Tim Holtz's Distress Line...paints, stains, inks, embossing powders, glitters, etc. More muted and artsy. Now I'd love to buy some napkins and stencil them to match! Got any other bright ideas?

I love the table runner! What a great find for $3! And perfect embellishment with the very pretty fall acorns!

Papertangler said...

That looks so lovely. Matching napkins is a good idea. Even if you start with just plain white. Or make napkin rings. I wonder how the napkins would hold up to repeated washing.....

Terrece said...

WOW!! Gorgeous!

awesome table runner!!! It would look fabulous on my table!!! Thank you for the great idea and inspiration!

I Love the colors and design of your table runner. I don't think your design is laundry proof, so the runner would be fine but I would stick with napkin rings.

Leanne said...

Beautifully done.

Janice said...

What can I say besides... "Fabulous"! You have done a beautiful job! Have a wonderful rest of the week!
