RELAX Altered Board

I have been hoarding this board on my back porch for almost six months. It was aging through winter. Going for a nice natural weathered gray look. A friend handed it to me a while back after pulling it out of one of our local rivers here and said make something out of it.

At the time I was a bit perplexed.

This past weekend I walked passed it and I thought it needed to have the words "RELAX" on it. It was previously a paddle I think. Thinking of a warm sunny river and floating down in a canoe, this seemed to fit.

Modge podged on the title that I cut out on my Silhouette, added a bit of glimmermist here and there and a gesso/glimmermisted flower sun shape, and then went over the whole thing again with Shimmer Modge Podge.

And, here is where I installed it. Over my spare room bed! It had these predrilled holes that made running  a bit of wire a breeze!

Hope you find some time today to RELAX, if not, the weekend is peeping it's head around the corner!
