Billy Sailor Boy

Happy Thursday everyone! How's your week been going? Today at Crafty Sentiments we have a special challenge in honor of July 4th! We want to see projects using

Red, White, and Blue

For my project this week, I altered a page from a chipboard album. I used Billy Sailor Boy from Crafty Sentiments Designs. I colored him with my copics. I added some gesso to a sheet of flute and then cut out the clouds and ocean swirls. I painted the swirls, sky, and ship. Then I sanded the ship and added blue star brads and Perfect Pearls Mist. I applied some gesso over the dimensional elements to help them stand out. Then sprayed all over with Perfect Pearls Mist and finished by covering with Mod Podge. The anchor charm is from Hobby Lobby and the Journey tag is Tim Holtz. I haven't altered anything for a really long time, so I hope you like it! :) Thanks for stopping by and please join us this week in our Red, White, and Blue challenge!
