An "Anchored" Petaloo Lantern

Authentique Paper and Petaloo are teaming up over the next week to bring you tons of "Nautical" inspiration using Authentique Paper and Petaloo products!


After you check out the projects here on the Authentique Paper blog, be sure to head on over to the Petaloo blog to find out what the talented members of their Design Team have in store for you today!

********************

Hey everyone, it's Hilary here today, sharing with you another fun "Anchored" project using some "Teastaine Deejarling Petite blue Dahlia flowers" from Petaloo, a fun Sizzix die, and a couple of SVG cutting files.  This is my little lantern, (which will light the way towards the beach), with a little tea-light inside, and it's perfect for any nautical themed party, or just a fun addition to your summer decor.  I hope you enjoy!

I made this lantern with the "luminary" Sizzix die from Tim Holtz, and some SVG Cuts.  I really had fun creating this.  I just adore this "Anchored" collection, I think I have used every square inch of the collection I've had, and I still want to to create more with it.  It's absolutely perfect for any summertime project and the colors and patterns are amazing.


For the windows, I used vellum, and for the top of the lantern, the seagull's wing, and the tops of the surfboards, I painted on some "Clear Rock Candy" crackle paint, then distressed some more.  Being seaside means that most everything is chipped, crackle, sand-blown or salted, so I tried to reflect that in my project. 


I love the crackled look on the surfboards.  Growing up in Ft Lauderdale, and having two brothers that surfed practically every day, (and still do),  I love the look of waxed over boards, so I tried to emulate that with clear crackle paint. 


I adore the teastained petite blue Dahlia's from Petaloo.  They are the perfect shade of color to coordinate with the "Anchored" collection,  I simply adore the distressed look to them.  The are a wonderful addition to any "Authentique Paper" collection.

Thank you all so much for stopping by today!  

I hope I've inspired you to create your own nautical lantern. 

For this project, you will need:
6x6 "Anchored"bundle, and "Anchored" Details Stickers


additional supplies:
Tim Holtz "Luminary" die for Sizzix, and die cutting machine, such as a "Big Shot", SVG Cuts "Beach Bum II" and "Beach Bum III", (for the seagull and surfboards), an electronic cutter such as an "Eclips" by Sizzix, or a "Cameo" or "Cricut" along with eCal software. 

Miscellaneous supplies:
vellum, vintage photo distress ink, clear rock candy crackle paint, hot glue, white small picket fence, cotton cord, a good permanent tape runner and a battery operated tea light.

  9. The seagull made me laugh. On vacation years ago, my daughter was 2. We stopped in a park alongside a lake for a picnic lunch. A seagull ran across our blanket and stole my daughter's sandwich right out of her hand. Too bad I didn't have a camera ready to capture the look of shock on her face. My husband's face would have been a great shot too.
