Altered Anchor

Hello crafty friends. I took a wooden anchor, and started to alter it by adding layers of multi-media products and paper, Then one all dry I started to add the embellishments.

The wooded anchor has a layer of gesso, and scraps of paper from Anchors Aweigh was randomly paced on the frame with a thin layer of Mod Podge, Once the aper was dries the paper was trimmed around the anchor then lightly sanded.I painted a layer of white wash over selected areas of the anchor.Then I mixed up wall compound and stencil paste together to place in the to several stencils strategically placed

Hand made flower using basic rose from heart felt creations. 

Petaloo flowers added to the center bottom of the anchor and a flourish stencil was added to the right side. I have 3 charms hanging down the center of the anchor.

Napavine Tigers 2017

Graduations are happening all over from pre-school to college. I am here to share with you a 12 X 12 layout, I created for this time of the year for our local high school. I have mixed and matched several paper collections to create this layout. Don't hesitate to play with the papers to create a project. Many of the paper lines go hand in hand.

The 12 X 12 base paper is QQP-AW101. 

The middle of the layout, I die cut the balloons out of the same paper as the base paper, then layer ed on to black card stock. I distressed the balloons using Corral PowderPuff chalking Ink (from my stash). The strings and celebrate also from black card stock. 

The lower right of the layout. Here you can view all of the quotes that was used. I used quotes from 49 shades of gray QQP-SH500

Lower left - show cases the flower created with QQP-AW109 with 2016 Berry Jam PowderPuff Chalking Ink distress the edges of the flower with a brad center.  The quotes came from QQP-SH 500. The quotes can be seen as well,  The photo mats are from 49 Shades of Grey QQP-SH102 and Windsong QQP-WS100

The upper right of the layout, I used a large graduation cap cut out ( which was created from glitter paper)  with 2017 already cut out of the cap, I added glossy accents to make the year pop. I added the letters cut out of QQP -AW101 .

Quick Quote Supplies Used:
