PSA Essentials Day 3

Okay so...today is day 3 of showcasing the fabulous PSA Essentials! I love these stamps. Did you see what the fabulous DT did yesterday OMGoodness!

Okay so I had to step up my game because my dt sisters were leaving me in the dust. I decided to make a 3d item for today. Here is what you will need to make this with me...

This is a 2x2" square block that I bought in a 6 pack at Hobby Lobby (with coupon 2.30)

 Mark with a pencil from corner to corner and where the two lines meet drill a hole about an inch deep. (Thanks Hubby)
 Choose your choice of wire (found at Tuesday morning for pennies) Make sure you opt for the thicker wire.
 Some acrylic paint, I also used Gesso but didn't put it in the pic for some reason? (Note: the more expensive acrylic you buy has more pigment in it which is better for a wood type of project. Otherwise all of the pigment just seeps in and you have to add like 5 coats; TIME CONSUMING!) I'm secretly talking about the Joanns brand in the back.
 A little embarrassed to show you my hot glue gun yes but she's been good to me over the years and I love her. Plus you will need one so I took a picture to show you.
So This is what you are going to do take your wire and cut it to about 8". Remember about an inch of it will be inside the wood and the top portion will be curled. So take your paint brush or anything circular and curl the top portion of your wire. Once you have it looking the way you want it position them all together. I only used three strands of wire but you can add any amount that will fit into the hole on top. Then you will take your glue gun and just let the glue drip into the hole. You can also do this after you have painted your entire block. Totally up to you.

Next get your acrylics out and paint away. You can use any colors you'd like. I also added some Gesso to make the whole thing lighter. Then using Stazon ink I stamped the pretty little hello kitty. She is from PSA Essentials and can be found here.

This is what the finished project will look like...
