The Wooden Spoon Project - Earth Safe Finishes

Hello, Crafty Peeps!
Here with my post for Earth Safe Finishes
Remember all ESF Products are VOC free!
This week I am featuring a quick little up cycle project using a wooden spoon hubster found at The Goodwill Store.  I trashed my original project because it was just "UGLY!"
Earth Safe "Chalk It Up" Paints eliminate the need for a gesso base coat.  Since I decided my original project was just "not right," I had to create this project in about two hours so not needing that additional coat was a great timesaver!
So sorry I did not get a picture of my pretty little butterfly nestled in the bottom bouquet!
I had fun playing with the Lavendar Cream and Plum Preserves.  Trying to get the gradation just right was challenging.  The color change is not as subtle as I hoped, but it works!

Supplies Used:

Earth Safe Finishes "Chalk It Up" - Lavender Cream and Plum Preserves
Earth Safe Finishes "Chalk It Up" - No VOC Varnish
Craft Designer 1.5" Vine Wreath
15mm Berry Beads
Flowers of your choice
