Altered Sailboat for Graphic 45

Hello lovelies! Back today to share my latest project for G45. I had a blast creating this little sailboat using the Come Away With Me collection and a smidge of By The Sea. 
I have had this wooden sailboat in my stash for quite some time. All I did was trace the map shape out of the fabric sails that were already on it. Easy peezy. Hope you like what I have created :)
 And more importantly you MUST go check out the blog HERE  to see Nichola's AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING
 sky zeppelin ! I am in AWE of her creation. She is my crafty muse. I tell her all the time what a huge crush i have on her hehe! She truly is just phenomenal! 

 The propeller is an Ingvild Bolme junkyard finding.
I also fussy cut the globe out of the paper line, so my lady captain could know where she was going of course.
 I used a spool to make the chain holder for the anchor. The anchor is just cut out of the By The Sea paper. 
In the net I have resin starfish and a crab.
 I made a steering wheel (is that the same name on a boat? LOL) for her out of a Staples
metal key and an Ingvild Bolme junkyard finding. And she is of course the captain of this boat!
 The resin sea horse on the front of the boat (by Ingvild Bolme) was actually my honey's idea! He sanded it down to size for me too! HE's a genius :) And the port opening (Ingvild Bolme) has the man working down below !
 I loved making these sails out of the Come Away with Me paper! So fun!

 I pulled out chippies from various companies and painted them all metallic.

The Petaloo flowers are so beautiful!!!!!! Look at the colors! The Botanica collection is def my fave!
I tore apart one of the Petaloo flowers to have the petals flowing down the side of the glass, as well as the chippie dandelion piece.

An Eerie Tale Altered Typewriter

Hey everyone! Here today to share my latest project for Graphic 45 using my FAVE An Eerie Tale! 
I really love this little typewriter! I'm always scouring for things to alter, some are easy , this one was a bit harder. There were a lot of uneven surfaces i had to sand to be able to cover with paper. That usually the first question I ask when I see something that I want to alter, "Can I cover it with paper?" And as long as I can, its alterable to me Lol. No matter what it is. Anyways I did lots of fussy cutting and just had a blast making this one! I really hope you all like it, make sure to check out the Graphic 45 blog for Jane's amazing work as well today! Hugs!

And here is my project :) 
This was a true labor of love! I saw this box of an airplane model kit, thinking it would be super easy to construct I dove right in. It took FOREVER! But it was fun, and I love the outcome! I coated the entire thing with brown wax medium when I was done constructing it, made it look vintage wooden. Then I just cut strips of paper to fit the grooves. Some time consuming efforts, but this paper just needed an airplane. Hope you like it ! Hugs!
