Vintage Travel CHA Release- Adirondack Chair

Ready for another look at a new CHA 2015 Eileen Hull Vintage Travel Release! Get relaxing with this awesome Adirondack Chair!  This chair is a blast to put together and super fast.  Leaving lot's of time to add some fun embellishments.
 
 
I started by inking the chair with distress paint brushed corduroy.

 
Now to embellish...

 
I am no sewer and judging by my terrible pillow that is obvious.  But, nonetheless I had some scraps of Electric Elements fabric that I stuffed to create a pillow.  Lol... I tried!

 
I used a mini wooden spool to tuck a tattered pinecone flower in. Then an added pinecone and some greens.
 
 
As soon as I saw this chair my first thought was a "Gone Fishin" sign.

 
I stenciled the wood grain.  But a texture fade with grain would work too.

 
Don't forget the back! 
 
 
The best part was adding all the fun embellishments.  This whole thing took me about 45 min to make.

 
Finally all my projects made it to CHA and are on display along with the rest of the Inspiration Designers creations.  The Luggage Tag I made is tucked behind the Adirondack Chair.

 
Thank you for taking the time to visit and share your excitement.  I'm so relieved everything finally made it.  It was a nail bitter!  
 
Check it out!  The rest of my Teammates are sharing and linking their Vintage Travel projects HERE.
 
I'll be entering this cute chair and "Pillow" in the Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge!  The awesome Inspiration Emporium is hosting this round of giveaways...YAY!  There was a lot of fraying going on but I sewed most of it up.  So, it may not count ;P

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

NEW Make Art Blendable Dye Inks

I am so excited to be apart of the new Wendy Vecchi "Make Art Blendable Dye Ink" release.  These inks have the robust colouring of the Archivals however you can blend them!  Even combining colours to make new ones.   Ohhh delicious! 

Watch the quick video below how I blended.

Ohhhh they create stunning colours.

I even dipped my ribbon for some colour!

The butterflies are an intense rainbow of colour.

Each colour is blended over the other creating hues of other colours.

I kept the tag simple so the inks could shine with these vibrant inks.

Make Art Blending Dye Inks are a must!  Thanks for taking a look.

Watercoloring with Butterflies & Oxides

The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials all month long.  I do have a video tutorial for this card but it won't be read for awhile.  Hey, it happens.  I at least have a couple of photo's until the whole video is posted on Creative Scrapbooker Magazines website.


Loving the new Oxide inks especially as we approach those soft easter pallets.

A little stamping.

I know it's not a box or cool journal.  One of my favourite dies is the Birds & Butterflies thinlit.  Yep, there are pretty little dies perfect for card making too.



I love the intricate butterfly to layer over.

A simple card and no it's not even a journal.

I will share the video when it's all done and posted.  I will even embed it in the post too.
Onto next month...
