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 …

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…

An Experiment... Hit RECORD!!!

OK, super funny maybe not funny story.  
I just got these Studio Style lights for filming.  I thought... Ohhh I'll make some pages in my Media Journal and test the lighting.  Meanwhile, you get a video out of the deal.  Ya... that would have been the best if I hit "record".  UGH...  a did this whole thing too with Scribble Sticks and Paint.

Check it out!  Ranger has Mixed Media Embossing Powders that I just got.  Ya, that was cool on video if I hot record.  There was all this stenciling and powders flowing!  Oscar nominated stuff.

Dylusion Paints and Dina Wakely has new washi tape so yep that went on too.  

See the face see, see!  That's the scribble stick awesomeness!  All this dipping in water, scribbling and blending with the Dynasty Brushes.   I was all like "ya this is cool"!  No proof it was me...

Check out the Mixed Media Embossing Powder.  All close up and everything.

Layers and layers of paint, stamping, stencils, tissue.

If only there was a video…
