Arjay's Room

Hello everyone Vicky here today with a creation.
Today I will show you something I made for my grandson's bedroom. He's mad about Jake & The Neverland Pirate's bless him. Also currently he is sharing with his sister while his mum & dad renovate his bedroom.
So I've used one of the AWESOME Dutch Doobadoo MDF Art Ship's Steering Wheel.......I loved, LOVED doing this & I will be ordering more. They also would make great gifts ;-)
The inside circle I painted first with Gesso then cut out a circle in the dp & the photo using the Shape Art Circle. I distressed the edges on everything & then ran it through the sewing machine. So there are bits of the white background peeping through here & there.
The outside of the wheel I used another 2 sheets of the All At Sea paper.

I used the Lighthouse & Gull die, I inked parts up with weathered wood distress ink.
I also used the A5 Wavy Stripes Mask Art with structure paste here & there.
Also if you look next to the lighthouses there is a small bottle which has sand in from the beach we live next to........yes we are very lucky as the sea is 5 minutes walking distance away from us.

I've also used the Anchor, Steering Wheel & Lifebuoy Die, above you can see the Steering Wheel cut from Kraft & had structure paste added & a Tim Holtz spinner through the centre.........kinda reminds me of a compass now lol.
The Anchor I cut from the paper art A5 Nautical set & then heat embossed it with silver embossing powder.
Here is the Lifebuoy cut out from Kraft card & structure paste added. I layered it onto burlap & added a button to the centre.
The hooped string at the top you can see is where I created the hanging hoop for his wall. I've used the banner die to add his name to.

Where each different paper meets I wrapped string around before attaching the back. I got the inspiration for this from something I have in my own bathroom...........
Pop on over ot my blog to see what it is ;-) Also see another project I recently made for my daughter using a Dutch Doobadoo product ;-)

The photo is of my grandson Arjay with his sister Payton, it was taken last month in my conservatory. I love making gifts for my family & Dutch Doobadoo & Noor Design make it sooooooooo easy with their awesome range of products.

Well that's it from me, hope you like my creation today.
Take care & hope you have a good day.
Lotsa hugs xxxxxxxxx
