Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by today. I have a fun project to share with you featuring the new collection by Authentique Paper called, "Anchored". I absolutely adore this collection. It is the absolute perfect, I mean PERFECT collection for all your nautical projects. I made this lantern using the Tim Holtz "Luminary" die and also added some fun SVG Cuts, (the seagull on top as well as the surfboards resting against it), and some fun distressed flowers from Petaloo. I hope you enjoy! ;)
and a few close ups...
I distressed the top of the luminary as well as the surfboards and the wings on the seagull with Clear Rock Candy distress paint, because everything at the beach is wind blown, sand blown, chipped and cracked, therefore I tried to add that to my project.
I inclued a small white wooden picket fence around two corners of the lantern, and twisted and bent them to make them as rustic as I could.
I love the little flowers from Petaloo, they add the perfect touch of color to my lantern and what nautical themed project wouldn't be complete without a tied cotton cord wrapped around the bottom.
...and here is it with a tiny battery operated tea light inside. I love this lantern, and I hope this inspires you to create your own.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! :)
