I hope you all a Merry Christmas. I had a grand time spent with Derek, my mom and loads of cousins up in Longview, WA. The food was great, we did a buffet and there were lots of different items to choose from. Everyone was very sweet and asked how my ankle was doing, but they also said we soooo missed your deviled eggs and better then pumpkin pie cups at Thanksgiving. I felt very happy!
Okay, today’s post is the second Sneak Peek design I created using the cute lumberjack inspired set (Wood You Be Mine). I challenged my self to create three designs from this cute set. I posted the first design several days ago. If you missed it, you can see it here. I really had to work at getting my masculine mojo flowing. I think this turned super cute and great for a guy. The Occasions Catalog will be available January 6th.
I really wanted to give the feel of a saw blade and the Starburst Framelits and Silver Foil paper did just the trick. I lightly sponged Stazon Jet Black ink around the pokey edges to look more like a blade. Then I colored the wood slice with my Neutrals and Pink Pirouette (in the Occasions Catalogs available January 6th) Blendabilities Markers. I have to say I’m becoming a fan of these guys. To give a bit of texture I added the serged edge from the 1-1/4″ Burlap Ribbon that I had cut away from a previous project. You just never know when those bits and pieces will come in handy!
Thank you for stopping by today and have a great Saturday!
