This is a project that inspired me, because I went to the craft store and found some very cool engraved rocks. I bought 3 of them, one said believe, another said Love, and the third said Live. I just thought that was so cool, and they were painted, and had speckles. And a Very Funny thing when I brought them home I showed my husband, and he says to me you bought rocks. I laughed and said to him there so cool, there engraved. He looked at me and said theres plenty of Rocks out in the yard icon .
This is the Materials I used to make this project. This was a fun and exciting project to make. The only difficult part of it was arranging the rocks and branches. Only because I am very picky, I would say Im a perfectionist. Sometime thats good and sometimes not so good. And the glue I used is very much like super glue, just much thicker. So one would have to be very careful not to get it on you or anything for that matter. The directions do say to wear gloves when handling the glue. But I hav a tendency to not be able to work with gloves on. And this project you will want to, strategically place the rocks and pieces of branches just where you want them. Before gluing, take a picture of the way you have them set up. Because there very easily moved from where you want them. And then you cant remember how you had it set up.
This is the preparation faze of this project, my pictures wouldn't cooperate. So the picture on the dark brown wood is the first layout, before I spray painted the plaque. And the other small picture is after I painted the plaque, and I was playing around with the layout. Then there is the Larger photo giving a better visual of the process of the layout.
This is another picture of the placement of all the bottom rocks, but there is a slight change in the rocks I used.
