Vicki Robertson GDT for June

I'm Vicki Robertson and wife to my best friend, mother of two beautiful, married daughters, and grandmother to three amazing grandchildren. We live in the Pocono mountains of Northeast Pennsylvania where I spend the majority of my time crafting.

I have been paper crafting for many years. Cards, scrapbooking, altered art and mixed media are my crafting passions. Using my hands to create gives me a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment while preserving memories for future generations. 

I am thrilled to be a guest designer for Just Imagine Crafts during the month of June. I hope that I can inspire you with my use of Just Imagine Kreaxions products.

A

With Father's Day just around the corner, I thought an altered project for dad was in order. I also wanted to show the versatility of the Just Imagine Kreaxion punches. So here is a fun beach chair gift! I started with an unfinished wooden beach chair and gave it a coat of Gesso to seal the wood.

B

Then I gave it a coat of Nautical Blue to go along with the beach theme.

C

Using the Kreaxion's Punch #310 with the A plate, I made a border stencil. I found that if I lined up the flourish edge of the previous punched outline with the edge of the A plate, the spacing was perfect.

D

Next, I placed the stencil across the front of the chair. I used white acrylic paint and stenciled the punched design on the chair.

After the acrylic paint dried, I added some detail using a Zig marker.

2

A beach umbrella was the next accessory to go along with the chair. I found some fun MME paper in my stash and cut the pieces for the hood of the umbrella. Next, I punched each of the pieces with the Kreaxions #310 punch without any plates.

3

I cut an umbrella hood from Bazzill Bling and added the patterned pieces. To make the punched image pop, I added orange cardstock under it. Then I used the Zig marker again for some faux stitching and added a Queen & Co candy dot at the top.

4

 A printed seat cover, some ornamental seashells and a "Happy Father's Day" sign to hang over the back, complete the chair! 

5

Here's my completed project including an "Oceans of Love" card to go along with it. I use the Kreaxion's #310 punch on the corner of the Rogue Redhead Design stamped image to represent the water current. I hope I have inspired you to try these amazing punches on your cards and projects!
