|Layers of fiber...
|Just look at those layers!
|Oh, the irony...
- Ranger base tag painted with a mixture of white iquitex gesso and some generic brown acrylic paint scraped on with an old hotel room-key.
- Cardboard panel from some packaging painted at the same time in the same fashion.
- "Aloha" written with a DecoArt paint pen
- Twine from stash
- Yarn sent last year by the fiber-lovin' (and fiber-sharin') Andrea at Snapping Monsters.
- The flowers were made by using the sponge-tip of Distress Paints in Picked Raspberry and Broken China on to old typewriter paper. When dry, I used the DecoArt paint pen to draw the flowers
- The faux water droplets are Mod Podge Dimensional Magic
- The last thing I added was the greenery... which is Mini Greenery by Tim Holtz cut from some paper that Autumn at Sew Paper Paint sent a year or two ago.
There are a few things unique about this project that make it special to me:
- I thought of my oldest daughter the whole time while making it because she loves Hawaii, and we visited Maui together a year ago
- Parts are from two inspiring crafty friends (Andrea and Autumn... huge hugs and thanks)
- There is no black on this project! (Now, that doesn't make it special because I love black, but it definitely was a choice I made, and I don't know why, to stay away from black on this project).
I'd love to share this with the folks at:
