"Smile Inspire Dream" Shimmery Wooden Wall Art
From the Designer: "A shimmery and vintage-looking wooden wall art that is easy to make and will inspire others. The project starts with a wooden base- and with a few strokes of a paint brush- transforms to a shimmery base. After drying, the base has a doily texture stenciled in one corner and inspiring words adhered. Some small embellishments are added and the wall art is complete! A fun project to create with family, friends or on your own! Once you make one, you will dream about your next shimmery craft project!"
