Club scrap lagoon blog hop

Hi all, welcome to the Lagoon blog hop! If you are hopping along then you are here from Hetty's blog. If you get lost along the way or want to start at the beginning head to Karen's post on the club scrap blog. For this months hop i am sharing with you a faux canvas i made using the lagoon kit. 

I say faux because it looks like a wrapped canvas when it's hanging.!it is a great way to upcycle too! So save those sturdy box/gift box lids to try your hand at making one.
Now because my box lid was already a beautiful glossy white similar the the paper i used I didn't have to paint the edges but for a box lid that has a color you don't want to see just paint it with acrylic paint.
I trimmed traced and trimmed the seahorse patterned paper to the size of the lid and used a liquid glue to adhere it to ensure it stays on well. I then stamped the saying onto the tan cardstock  and matted it on darkgreen cardstock then the burlap paper. Lastly, i added lots of shimmer onto the seahorses/ mermaid tail  and burlap with distressed & regular stickles- see closeup pics 

To get your hands on this kit and all things club scrap go here

 Finished  8 x 10 faux canvas

Close-up  of the tail- i fussy-cut the mermaid cutapart then used the dazzlers from the kit to layer on the tail to look like scales

A couple before pics---

Ipad box lid as my faux canvas 

I am lovin that lil detail bottle with the cs binding glue in it to get in those lil spots!

Using every bit of those gorgeous teal dazzler stickers  using a mini punch i punched seashells from the edge of the sticker

Closeup - oh and don't forget you can alter embellishments to match using a alcohol marker like i did for the starfish above

Next stop is cheryl's blog-
 Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!

What a great canvas and the shell idea out of the sticker material is a great tip!

Very cool use of the sticker5s for your mermaid. Well done.

That's gotta be the most clever use of those teal dazzle stickers I've seen to date! Love how you used a punch to make shells out of the edge of the parent sheet, too!

Cheryl Walker said...

Super cute canvas, and love how you punched out the darling shells using the sticker sheet, awesome idea! Love it!

Wendy Bellino said...

Your details are brilliant! The dazzling mermaid tail, the punched shell stickers, and presto/chango color change on the rhinestone starfish=FUN underwater scene!

Kay Williamson said...

Wow, what a great faux canvas, love that using a box lid idea. Such a great quote to adorn your super cute and clever under water scene canvas!

Wow...I can't believe you punched those dazzle stickers. My eyes cross just thinking about it. Looks awesome! Very clever to recolor the starfish.
