This is my favorite of the three!
These were pictures Eli's Aunt Mandie took of my brother, Kolby and I trying to get Eli dressed for Halloween.
When I started this page, I wasn't quite sure where I was going with it, I just knew I wanted that boat on there. So instead of it being on there, I made it come through the page.
I cut a big hole right where I wanted it to be and then sat the boat underneath. I started tearing the edges back until the boat was completely exposed. Using the vintage photo distressed ink, I darkenedit to look like it was burned. Then I added a fleur de lis chipboard piece, inked it in walnut stain distressed ink and embossed it with walnut stain embossing powder (NOTE: if you have not used these powders before, know they are not like other embossing powders - ask me why :-) they don't change color as noticeably therefor I kept using my heatgun on it until I burned a hold through my powder plate - only took a day to get the smell of burned plastic out of that room - did have a hard time explaining that one to my husband).
n For the pictures, I used a piece of corrugated board and my trusty distrez it all tool to the edges, glued it down on top of a piece of netting. The "brads" are pieces of paper that I ran through the cuttlebug using my new embossing plus folder for tags. Then I handstitched the corners of the photos to the tags and pinned them down with brads.
The word pirate was cut out using the black letter cartridge on my cricut and the word becoming was cut out using the gypsy font. The piece of chipboard that the word becoming it sitting on was inked with faded jeans distress ink, then I painted over that with white acrylic paint. Once it was dry I sanded it down until it was just right!
Supplies: Patterned paper, corrugated board, mesh fabric, distressed inks, gypsy font and black letter cartridges, chipboard
