Add Wall Art to Your Gallery Wall

Ever since we found out we are expecting a baby GIRL in June this year, my mind has been in creative overdrive thinking about how I am going to transform our spare room into a pretty nursery. As many of you may not realize, I was absolutely convinced we were having another boy…so the fact that now my world will soon be filled with pink and more pink is truly a very unexpected (yet super exciting) surprise!

Once we complete painting, I will soon begin on the baby’s gallery wall.  However, until that time has come, I am slowly working on creating decor pieces to add to the rooms walls once the painting is complete.

Today I want to share one of these pieces with you and how I am choosing to incorporate the Heidi Swapp Wall Art words into my decor.

I am using the beautiful Wall Art word ‘welcome’ that is done in Heidi’s signature handwriting.   You can see all of the available words here. These are now available and exclusive to Michaels Stores.

I am going to transform my Wall Art word by taking things one step further using some paint.

I will be using Deco Art Metallics paint in Rose Gold, along with the white Heidi Swapp paint from the White Wash Gallery Wall Paint kits.

To begin, I am going to transform the small chipboard pallet sign using white paint.

Simply apply the paint to the pallet sign, using as much or as little paint as you wish.

Set aside to dry when complete.

Next up to customize is our Wall Art word.

Because I am using the Deco Art Metallic Rose Gold paint, I want to add a light coat of white paint to the Wall Art word first.  This will really help pop our metallic colour.

Once the white paint is thoroughly dry, we can now add on our Metallic Deco Art Paint.  You can add on as many coats of paint a you wish to achieve your desired look.

Once you are done this step, find your pallet board.  It is time to add a little stamping!

I am completely in love with the brand new Magnolia Jane collection that debuted at Creativation 2017 back in January.  Not only is it filled with gorgeous colours and artwork, but it is PERFECT for a baby girl’s nursery.  So I am going to use the floral art from one of the Magnolia Jane acrylic stamp sets on my pallet board.

I am adding some subtle floral detailing to the edges using black archival stamping ink.

Once everything is dry, it is time to adhere our Wall Art word to our pallet using a hot glue gun.

Apply small amounts of hot glue to the back of the word and gently place onto the pallet board.

Because I want to hang this pallet sign, I am using some gold chain that is part of the Gallery Wall collection.  The chain and clips make it super easy to display projects!

I took my project one step further and decided to layer my sign over top the large Gallery Wall DIY Frame Kit.

I even added a piece of my favourite Magnolia Jane floral paper into the frame for added design.
