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

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

New Release- Stamp and Photo Storage

All month the Inspiration Team for Eileen Hull is thrilled to be showing off the her newest Book Club Collection.  Here's my little glimpse at the Stamp and Photo Storagedie.  There is nothing this decent size die can't do... or hold!  In this case Letter's to Santa.  I even combined the Trinket Box & Frame to frame out Santa.


I stamped the Woodland Winter Santa designed by yours truly onto watercolor paper and used my Scribble sticks to add a little color.
I cut a piece of clear packaging and ran it through my little Xyron Disposable Sticker Makerto create a cover for my Santa.  Perfection!

I colored up the Floral Arch and Words arch to attach to the bottom and top and attached.  I used some Distress Woodgrain Cardstock to wrap my Stamp and Photo Storage. I cut Super StockCardstock to fit inside.  Inking and stamping like crazy all tied off with some postal twine.  The Correspondence Stamp Set is perfect.


I mounted the Trinket Box & Frame to the Stamp and Storage…

Snow Scene Cloche

Sometimes it starts with an idea... like silver rich brush bottle trees.  OH YA IT DOES...
Do you remember the ghostly cloche... well I am repurposing the cloche for Christmas.  Why buy more when I can use it again by simply creating a removable base.

There's the empty cloche and a new cut out base.  Gather a bunch of trees and ink up some glittery paper for die cutting.

More inking and die cutting the Snowman Scene snowman then assemble this adorable snow stopping snowman.  I had some left over gold deers from last year so I snapped them up for a little added gold.

Here's the inspiration... this brushed pewter brush bottle trees.  Once dry brush some distress collage medium coating the trees and coat in distress glitter.

They look like flocked Canadian trees.  Too add more gold I inked up an adornment star with alcohol ink topped to the tree.

Mini Holiday Green cut and the little berry's in more gold.  I rolled up woodgrain paper to look like wee logs.  Then wrapped the b…
