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

Jarred Florals

How's your summer so far?  Me... I am just returning from a long vacation from down south.  So I am probably folding a lot of laundry. TheXyronTeam andACCOare playing all week with staplers and cutters.  Which means anything goes creatively!  I am so thrilled to use their Guillotine Trimmer LiteI don't own one so this is super exciting... 10 papers at one time!  
(all supplies used is linked for your convenience)

Time to crack into my new Flower Jar stamps and Framelits dies and a whole lot of colouring.
Once the colouring was done I added a little touch of dimension to these teeny wildflowers with a stylus and water.  It's my first cut with the Guillotine Trimmer Lite, dang thats sharp.  Even for small cuts.
I ran the stitched circle cut through the Creative Station then used the Create a Sticker for the adorable teeny wildflowers.
The Pondering Words "WONDERFUL" cut is perfectly cut with the Guillotine Trimmer for this 3/4" cut.  I popped it on the edges …

Fall Colours

OK, I know, I know we are only half way through summer and already there are fall leaves on my blog!  I really couldn't help myself.  I mean... you know me! This week Xyron and Newton's Nook are teaming up for some... AWESOMENESS!  Of course I had to go for these gorgeous leafy stamps.  Can you imagine these embossed or in an art journal!  So many creative ways to make stuff.

I gathered some goodies including my Tag and Tie to make a Kraft Tag for the sentiment. A little bit of stamping and inking goes a long way.  

I stamped the wee pumpkin from the Falling for You set (linked below) and coloured with Stabilo Woody 3 in 1 pencils.  These are great for watercoloring too.  Yep, it happens from time to time... I fussy cut the pumpkins out.

I stamped the Beautiful Leaves stamp (linked below) with a blend of Oxide Inks.  Stamping again on inky scrap paper with large maple leaf... yep, more fussy cutting.  Oi...

More stamping on the background and then run through the Creative Sta…

Wanderlust

I am pretty sure I have the "Wanderlust" bug!  I wanted to try something different so I decided to try some texture paste on the cover.  The matboard is tough enough to handle some texture paste.  I used chalk paint and texture paste to decorate my cover instead of paper.


Cut the superstock paper to fir the journal, 8x8 scoring in the centre to create a page.  I used oxides and stenciling to create a dynamic page.
Die cutting on pattern paper for some great elements.  Love the brush and foam for those small dies Especially the Gearhead die!  
See, all those little bits popped right out!  More inking and layering for these pages.  Making life easier with the Creative Station and these smaller detailed dies.
Lets make some trophy's!  I coated them with hammered metal embossing powder and coloured some distress crayons to distress it.
I cut and inked the Heart and Soul flower with more pattern paper.
I love the Ornate Frame #2creating some great vintage elements for this …
