Aye Aye and now for the projects!!
Shiver me Timbers, ye 'no I couldn't resist with one, aye aye?
All of my projects revolve around none other then Cap'n Jack Sparrow of course!!
Today I made a Jack Sparrow Handled Bag and matching Card!I used the JACK BAG layers and added them to the So Jacked Handled Bag -- these fit together so well! Now the Jack layers are free today only, but the bag file is in the store.
So here is the handled bag with the Jack Layers, I used Pirate Booty Stamps and Pirate Candies to make the awesome caramel bombs. I used Kraft twine and braided it to represent sailor type knots (I DID make the s knot but it didnt lie flat, boo)... the Mini Tag Dies 2 works so awesome with the overlook I was going for!
Mini Tag Dies 2 die.. I simply folder one ended and attahed to the underside of my candy..and added some Jute "fuse" to create adorable candy bombs!
My next project is actually NOT included in the hop files.. Its Jack's very own TATTOO of the Sparrow. I cut it out in Vinyl and added it to a Dollar Tree Black journal. I beat up this journal.. soaked it out in the rain for a few days.. then took sandpaper to make it all old and weathered. I really LOVE how it came out!
I think took some beads I had lying around in my storage and added them out. I love those Skull Beads (don't ask where I got them from, I have had them for like 7 years so I honestly don't remember!) I added another awesome stamp sentiment from Jaded Blossom's Pirate Booty!!
Inside of the stained pages, I added the Pirate Candy stamps to the corners!
Now for my Final Project today!
I have seen Michelle doing amazing glass etching projects for some time now. She makes it look so EASY, so I just HAD to give it a go!
I bought a glass canister jar at Walmart for like $5...
then I used the FREE Jack Head Silhouette and made this jar for a friend.
I love how it came out, although I dont tdon't my photo really captures it well. Its is quite hard to take a photo of glass!
I wrapped some jute twine around the handle and rims to give it a more masculine feel. Then I finished it off with a few mini tag dies and stamps...and another awesome Skull Bead!
I plan to layer this baby with some cookie mixture ingredients and call it her Jar of Dirt!!
