Thank you for dropping by today, I have my altered Burlap Panel to show you for the latest CC3C challenge, but firstly I would like to say a huge Thank you to everyone who visited and commented on my last project Missed the Bus. I was overwhelmed by the response by everyone who said they liked it and it got pinned on one of Tim's Pinterest boards too! wow! so proud. I did have a little help from my best friend Anne as she posted the project on her facebook page which let it be seen by some who may otherwise have missed it - Thank you Anne.
Back to Linda Ledbetters CC3 challenge 6. This time we are asked to put our own spin on the tutorial on page 37 which is an Altered Burlap Panel. I can't show you the technique involved as you need to buy Tim's fabulous book for that which you can purchase Here.
The Funkie Junkie Boutique is back to sponsor Challenge 6, and owner Linda Coughlin is offering a fabulous $25 shopping spree to one very lucky winner.
A little different to my usual colour scheme, this little panel was named after one of my favourite comedy films Planes, Trains and Automobiles starring John Candy and Steve Martin, as they are the 3 forms of transport featured on this journey (albeit the automobile turned out to be a bus rather than a car).
The Red White & Blue Theme came from the colours of the French Flag as it was soon becoming apparent that our journey was to Grande Paris (Barn Door, Picket Fence and Chipped Sapphire). The panel was backed with Melange tissue and most of the tickets were taken from the Expedition ephemera pack.
A couple of cogs and spinner were added
plus a wordband and chit chat stickers. The Eiffel Tower was stamped onto a journalling ticket and cut down to fit
I wrapped a piece of eclectic elements fabric around a piece of card to give it strength before adding a buckle and an eyelet to secure it
I thought it looked a little like a luggage strap you would wrap around your suitcase when travelling
so I wrapped it around the edges also and secured it with glue
The Hotel Mondia in Paris centre is the final destination lets hope the travellers have a lovely time.
Thank you as always for your visit today.
