Pegs? Tools? Toolpegs?

A big HI from me to all of you out there.
Suzanne here to share a little something with you.

supplies I used
clothes pegs SW N13045
drills SW M13047
and screw heads
from plate 160 Hardware Findings 2 PLATESW160

acrylic paints
two step crackle
gelli printing plate
several stencils
TH frameworks die honeycomb and

Spring is (hopefully) all around and you can dry your laundry on the clothesline outside again ;-)
I primed wooden clothes pegs with acrylic paint buttermilk, painted the heads, and rolled them over the gelli printing plate with different acrylic paints and stencils - two of them were cut out from the packages of the TH dies themselves. Afterwards the images from the plate hardware findings were stamped onto the pegs - or I actually laid the stamps down and rolled the pegs over them.
When they were dry I added one layer varnish, two step crackle, and last but not least I highlighted the cracks with light blue paint.

I hope you like those wooden pegs a little bit - there certainly are more ways to use them: to embellish something, for family games ... whatever. It has been great fun to decorate them.
Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day everyone and I'd love to see you again tomorrow and any other day to have a look at the stunning DT makes.

Hugs, Suzanne xx

They look great! By using crackle they look like they are really old, also because of the colours you have chosen. I think it will be dangerous to use them for your laundry, when you are not looking they will be stolen! LOL
