Boardwalk Blog Hop

Welcome to the Club Scrap Boardwalk Blog Hop!  If you've arrived from the talented Tina's blog, you are in the right spot. If you'd like to start from the beginning, please head over to Club Scrap to see what wonderful project Karen has created for you.

My family recently started collecting wooden plaques for our cabin.
Our color theme is red so the Boardwalk collection was perfect for my design.

I was inspired by this sign on Pinterest while browsing for beachy ideas. 
I thought I'd channel my inner Julie and create a sign out of a pizza box. 

Start with unfolding your Club Scrap pizza box the collection came in. 
Using a utility knife cut several 2"x 12" strips.  I created extras just in case.
Pull off layers of the cardboard to distress. 

Paint the strips with white acrylic paint. 
Be sloppy about it, it's supposed to look weathered.

Adhere 1.5" torn paper strips to cardboard strips with bookbinding glue. I started with 12" long strips and tore the edges off randomly.  I felt the paper was too bold so I applied water to my acrylic paint and gave the papers a "white wash" and then wiped off excess with a paper towel. 

I used the same bowl of water and white acrylic paint to flick paint drops on the strips. Next I juggled the different strips around until I like the color balance.  Using bookbinding glue I attached the strips to a 10" x 10" cardboard square cut from the top of the pizza box. Die cut letters, add to strips. I used the stencil from Mirror, Mirror to hand cut the arrows. Of course origami Calvin the Crab HAD to make an appearance. 

I can't wait to hang my sign on our next trip!

Club Scrap cardboard box, papers, stencil. Sizzix alphabet dies.

Club Scrap is challenging its members to create their own Shibori artwork with tissue papers. This Japanese dye technique uses different folds and twists to create patterns on cloth. Today I'm playing with re-inkers and tissue paper. Julie gives a great tutorial on the Club Scrap blog. Using the re-inkers I had on hand and folded tissue paper, I created these background Shibori panels.  I then adhered the tissue to manila tags using bookbinding glue to make the panels more sturdy. Time to create cards with the gorgeous panels. This blue panel was created using Color Burst powders dissolved in alcohol.   If you'd like to join the challenge for a chance to win a Club Scrap gift certificate, enter your artwork via the Linky party on the website.
