~* Nautical-Themed Mixed Media Altered Kraft Envelope using Magnolia Hula Hula Tilda *~

Aloha!
I altered another kraft envelope.  I love these "one-sided" cards.  I used the beautiful Prima Seashore collection and the adorable Magnolia Hula Hula Tilda image that I colored up with my Copic markers.  I added real shells, nautical clays pieces that I colored with my Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists (Crushed Shells, Clam Bake, and a brown-toned one), cheesecloth, glass pearl beads, burlap twine, a metal anchor charm that I distressed with molding paste...I did some masking with my stencil and molding paste, but most of it was covered up.  I also added some goodies from my friend, Bev, who owns The Piece by Piece on Etsy.  I used some of the net-like material, gorgeous teal petal trim, and blue loopy trim she gave me.  I added some milky iridescent halfback pearls.  I also added this beach mat-like material and Aged Ivory Fran-tage.  I sprayed Lindy's Stamp Gang Cactus Gold all over the project.  I finished off the back to write a message to a friend.

~* Mixed Media Beach-Themed Mini Canvas *~

Aloha!
Sharing a mixed media mini canvas that I made for my friend, Bev, visiting the islands.  I had a lot of fun making this beach-themed project.  I've been collecting a lot of beach-themed/nautical crafty things lately and have been itching to create!  I added gesso to the top portion of the canvas and sort of swirled it on.  I added some Martha Stewart stucco paint on the bottom portion to make it look like sand.  I sprayed Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist on the gesso and on the stucco paint.  I then stenciled with modeling paste over the top portion of the canvas.  I sprayed everything with Pearl Glimmer Mist so the colors ran over the stenciling.  I gessoed the chipboard letters and added Diamond Stickles all over them.  I added two pretty shells, some glass pearls, clay pieces that I sprayed with Glimmer Mists, and some burlap twine that I tied in a bow.  I adhered that burlap-like material and cheesecloth to the back of the canvas.  I rubbed gesso on everything and added some Fran-tage in Aged Ivory.

~* Vintage Hawaii Altered Kraft Envelope with Hula Magnolia Tilda *~

Aloha!
Here is an altered kraft envelope that I made into my "one-sided" card.  I used the beautiful Kaisercraft Tropicana paper collection.  I used the adorable Hula Hula Tilda Magnolia Rubber Stamp Sea Breeze Collection (my second Tilda stamp :))!  Love her!  I colored her up with my Copic markers and I distressed the image with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  I layered designer papers and cardstock diecuts and stickers from the collection.  Everything is distressed with the Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  I tied some burlap twine, used a paper hibiscus flower that I distressed and added the ship's wheel and a vintage-looking button.  I used a Dandelion Designs stamp, "fun in the sun!!" and the tag says "Happy Memories"
 On the back, I sealed the envelope and added diecuts from the collection.   I plan to add my message here.
