ENJOY THE LITTLE THINGS... like fishin'!

Hello Sweet Crafty Friends!

My last post for July.... 

I always enjoy working with my Lindy's Stamp Gang products so just had to do one last fun project this month.  

It was lots of fun!  This is on a 10.5 x 10.5 cedar board. 

I began by using DecoArt Crackle Paste and a Tim Holtz stencil to make the water. 

While that was drying I began work on the top panel and the sun!

Next adding embossing powder to the sun.

This was the most fun part for me... making the top panel look like a sun-rise or... it could be a sunset... whichever you choose!!! 
In addition to the July Challenge Colors I added California Poppy Gold Magicals - love that shimmer!

Here are the products I used in making the bottom panel. 
Lots of stamping with Stampin'Up and Rubber Dance stamps. 
As well as embossing with July colors! 

Here are all three pieces when ready to put together! 

And then I began putting things together. 

The dock is wood from the ranch - I sprayed some Dark Chocolate Truffle on the posts underneath to give them a little texture!  That's cheese cloth hanging over the side - hoping it looks like a net.  I painted the cheese cloth with a combo of Lindy's Bonjour Butter and a tiny dash of Dark Chocolate Truffle.  

The fish and lure are real fishing items from my tackle box - hook and all!  I put the rubber worm over the hook!!!

The pole is a tiny branch with cheese cloth texture wrapped around it and the fishing line is tiny red wire. 

The boat is held in place by twine! And that's a Tim Holtz metal tag - the name of the boat is "Wander".

It's hard to see but there are also a couple of folks fishing in a boat out on the lake. 

There is also a lizard, a turtle and a bird... as well as a string of fish hanging from the little fisherman's bag!  They are metal charms.

The rest - you can probably figure out pretty easily!! 

Here's a close up of some of the many textures!

The sentiment is from Dylusions Clear Stamps, Clearly Quotes. It's supposed to be floating on a cloud! 

Thanks bunches for stopping by again!!!  Hugs. j.
