When I first saw the Renew Collection, I sighed aloud. It's gorgeous. I just love the bright yellow against the gorgeous teals, white and black. I found this wonderful wooden hanging decor piece from Sierra Pacific Crafts. I usually buy my wooden pieces from my local craft and scrapbook store, but I know that the big box stores also have similar items. I also snagged a piece of Oracal vinyl in Black, as I wanted to create a title for the piece.
I started with the back side of a piece of Rejuvenate. I loved how the black title would pop against the yellow pattern of the paper. There are a few things I use for creating wooden decor items: spray adhesive, an emery board/nail file, and an electronic nail file. Spray adhesive is great for wood, as it won't create any bubbles or get the paper wet. Cut your paper out using a craft knife, then spray as directed and adhere. When the paper has dried for a bit, I use the emery board to smooth off the edges and a little bit of the wood. This way, the paper will not peel from the wood. For any holes, use the electronic nail file to make perfect holes. I grabbed mine from a discount store. Just a little hint... both are better if not brand new. Use those nail files that you were going to previously toss!
