Another Gypsy Project...

Hey guys! Well, I had so much fun playing with my new Gypsy earlier this week that I decided I had to pull it out and play some more. As some of you may already know, my mother is a 5th grade teacher. She has been altering these wooden letters for each of the teachers in her grade. She is decorating each of them in a coordinating theme to the teachers room. So, long story short....she let me decorate one. I chose to decorate one for Mrs. Mayfield. Her room is decorated in a pirate theme. I used my Gypsy and the following cartridges for this project: Paper Doll Dress Up, Happy Hauntings, Doodlecharms, and Life Is A Beach. I did a little tinkering with the Gypsy on the 'skull rock' and the 'waves.' I used my Gypsy to flip one and stretch another. I used a cloud patterned paper on the letter. I also added some blue swirly looking paper for the water. I added Glossy Accents to the top of that paper to give it a wet look. I then added some sand paper for the 'beach.' I cut 'Mayfield' out using the Happy Hauntings cartridge. I covered those letters with Glossy Accents as well. Here is the altered letter:
I cut this treasure chest out using 'Life Is A Beach.' I filled it with some rhinestones to give some dimension.
I used Paper Doll Dress Up for both the ship and 'skull rock' in the background. I'm not sure if that what it is supposed to be in the Cricut booklet, but that is what we saw. LOL. It reminded me of 'skull rock' from Peter Pan. I shaded it with some chalk.
A little pirate girl and pirate boy from PDDU. I added Glossy Accents to the little boy's pirate hook to add stability.
To show the dimension of the rhinestones....
Hope you all have a great day! Thanks for stopping by my blog! Have a wonderful Labor Day holiday tomorrow! Happy Scrappin'!
