Hello again! Kay here with my Authentique & Petaloo project! Two wonderful companies have paired up for some fabulous projects that are sure to jump start everybody's mojo! :-)
For my project I did a toy wooden sailboat all decked out in Authentique's 'Anchored' paper line. I found this wooden toy boat in the kiddie hobby section at my local craft store. It came in a bag and one has to assemble it together & design the boat to their liking. It's amazing what a bit of paint, paper, flowers & trim will do to a simple wooden sailboat!
All of the flowers & seashells seen on the boat are by Petaloo. The trim that goes around the bottom of the boat is by Petaloo as well. I painted the bottom of the boat red & then sanded it down to give it a worn look.
Here's the back of my boat. I named it 'Anchored'! lol How befitting & original eh?
This little guy will be displayed in my son's room for now. It ended up being just the right size & best of all, the colors match his room!
Thanks for stopping by & enjoy the rest of the week.
Before you know it, those patriotic holidays will be upon us like Memorial Day and the 4th of July. And what better way to help set the mood than an easy to create festive canvas piece for decorating around the home! The great red, white and blue inspired patterns found in the "Anchored" paper collection makes decorating for these American holidays a snap!
Begin by covering a canvas with "Still" paper and trim to size. Highlight edges of the covered canvas with Delicata Silver. Cut strips from "Cruise," "Deep" and the backside of the "12 x 12 Enhancements" sheet to create the patterned stripes, and the solid red pieces from the "Foundations One" paper. Edge all strips with Delicata Silver. Use dimensional adhesive for the patterned paper strips and adhesive of choice for the solid strips. Add ribbon over the solid red stripes.
To create the blue star field, use the Rounded Squares die to cut the larger layering piece from "Particle" and small piece from "Guide" paper. Attach the blue lace ribbon around the "Guide" paper and add a label plate with included brads onto of the ribbon before adhering the pieces together.
Finish the the canvas by embellishing with dahlia flowers from Petaloo.
