Hey, there! If you're hopping with Club Scrap today, you probably just left Lisa's blog. If you made your own way here a different way and want to start at the beginning of the hop, click here to go to Club Scrap to see what Karen has today and to check out the whole hop list.
This month, the team was challenged to visit Club Scrap's Pinterest account, choose a Pin with a technique or tutorial that inspires us, and make a project, page, or cards based on the Pin. I chose to make a wall hanging similar to the one on the right. I used materials from the lush "Lagoon" kit.
First, I covered the outer edges with the scale paper from the kit and then glued the section of paper I wanted as the background onto the front panel.
I attached the two mermaid tails I'd fussy cut and then covered them with a Spectrum Noir clear glitter pen. (Sadly, I couldn't get a photo that really shows the beautiful shimmer the tails have.)
Next, I added Glossy Accents to the shimmery tails. While I waited for HOURS for the Glossy Accents to dry, I trimmed out some of the seaweed to use in front of the tails and stamped/layered the sentiment for the corner of the box.
I toyed around with adding one of the starfish from the kit to the box, but it didn't look right to me with the paper. I thought aboud some sand at the bottom - yes, Dollar Tree DOES sell sand, in different colors even - but chucked that idea because I didn't think it would add anything to the scene and might ruin the good thing I already had going on! (After it was all said and done, I went back and sponged the edges of the frame, but that's all the embellishment it was going to get!)
This is going somewhere where it can be seen in the library where I work. Kids get encouragement from places and things we don't even realize. Maybe this will resonate with one of them and make a difference!)
For you younger chicks, or you older chicks who had to watch it repeatedly when your kids/grandkids were little, there's Disney's The Little Mermaid from 1989. I'm sure you know all the songs by heart, yes?
Well, that does it for me. Next up on the hopping trail is Wendy. I hope you have a terrific day and look forward to you visiting again!
