For the theme this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we want to see your "Mid-Summer" creations. Whether your creative mind wants to take a vacation or be inspired by Shakespeare; play with a Farmer's Market inspired paper line or stamp into a starry night frenzy - we challenge you to create and share with us.
I created an altered anchor to display in my son Christopher's ocean themed bedroom.
Summer reminds me of ocean, and ocean reminds me of an anchor. Christopher loves everything about ocean. So for this week's challenge, I decided to alter an 11" chipboard anchor that I purchased at local craft store to display in his room.
First, I prepared the chipboard with applying a layer of Gesso on it using a paintbrush.
Create some beautiful stain pattern on the chipboard with Prima Flower stencil and Modeling Passte.
I gethered different inks in blue shades such as Distress Stain, Izink ink and Distress Ink, then applied them on the chipboard anchor. Distress the edges with ColorBox Mix'd Media Inx Chox.
Decorate the anchor with Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Words Remnants Rubs and Border Stickers.
To finish off this project, I tied a string and the decorative trim on the chipboard anchor.
Attach the distressd keys to the anchor.
I hope you like my chipboard anchor and I know that Chrisopher will love it!
