Welcome the weekend, right? I have a lot going on today, but tomorrow…sweet nothing. I love days like that.
I came across this paper a while back, probably thinking I’d use it to scrap a page from when my son was into pirates. But that never happened. I haven’t had the best success with scrapbooking although I have every intention of trying again…someday. But as a card/paper crafting designer, I never know what’s ahead as far as stamps or pub calls, so I do tend to pick up odd sheets here and there, not really knowing if I’ll ever use it. But look what I have…a Lizzie Anne pirate!! And I had that one sheet of perfect paper! I love when that happens! 🙂
I used Copic markers to color my little pirate and although it doesn’t show well in the photo, I outlined him in gray. The anchor charm is tied onto the card using black hemp that I’ve had forEVER. Why I ever bought a pack of colored hemp is beyond me. The only hemp I’ve ever used is natural. It’s funny, the things you find when moving from one spot to another. I had so much “stuff” crammed into one small space. It’s so nice to have a spot for everything now…well, almost everything. My room isn’t quite finished but it’s close! (I’m still waiting for my project table….arrrrrgh!)
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a great weekend!!
