Faux WelcomePlaque Collage wm

 Today I made a faux welcome plaque using Smoothfoam and Clearsnap ink!!! The beauty of Smoothfoam is that it is moldable and lightweight so it makes DIY decor projects go lickety split.PLUS, the smooth surface is paintable and inkable so it is easy to decorate. Check out how I made this plaque here:
