Isn't he just the cutest! I just love that cardboard airplane. That's something that my son would really enjoy. So......I hope you can see my stitching. It doesn't always show too well on camera. I machine stitched all of the dp layers. The dp's, btw, are from BG's 'Oliver' collection. This is one of my fave boy collections of paper. I originally purchased two 6x6 pads and I'm trying to make them last as long as possible. Anyway, cs is by SU. The Stampendous sentiment was stamped on a tag that I cut with one of the Magnolia DooHickey 'Dream Tag' dies. Then I ripped it up a bit, crinkled it, and gave it additional age by rubbing the edge with some DI (I think I used both Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo by Ranger). I also gave some cheesecloth some age with the same method, but I finished it off by spritzing it with water and rubbing it between my hands to take away the edges of ink pads.
I grabbed buttons from my stash and laced them with some natural string. The gears are chipboard pieces from MIC. I painted them with a silver paint pen and then rubbed them with a bit of DI for some age. The image is painted entirely with watercolor with DI's. Here are the color details:
Ranger DI's: tea dye, tattered rose, antique linen, vintage photo, walnut stain, scattered straw, weathered wood, tumbled glass, shabby shutters, peeled paint, black soot, pumice stone
Well, that is it for me today! I absolutely enjoyed making my first La-La Land project and I can't wait to get started on the next one. You'll see it here next Friday. Until then I'll look forward to showing you my other creations.
Thank you so very much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed your visit and will take a moment to leave a little note letting me know that you were here.
