With Summer just around the corner, I’m beginning to feel those outdoors happy vibes that long, warm days bring. Who’s with me? Hi friends, Linsey here today sharing my latest craft project inspired by my love for all things Summer! Come along and take an adventure with me into the great outdoors!
Bringing the Outdoors In!
I started with a 12″ long unfinished wooden canoe and covered it inside and out with designer patterned paper. I was delighted to discover that Adhesive Sheets 12 x 12 inch work beautifully for this process. Because these are actual sheets of high quality, permanent adhesive, they cover the entire piece of paper so you get no bumps or lifting around the edges. I highly recommend them for a project like this and a whole lot more.
Next, I went to town decorating my canoe with a variety of paper die cuts, chipboard pieces, cardstock stickers and metal embellishments. Everything is packed for a fun weekend of camping, fishing, canoeing, hiking, roasting hot dogs and marshmallows for s’mores and sleeping under the stars!
I used both Thin 3D Foam Squares Black Mix and 3D Foam Circles Black Mix. Love that they offer both 2mm and 1mm heights as well as in white option. It allows for customized embellishment placement which is really nice, especially for a 3D project like this.
With my trusty E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser, I secured pieces in a few places too. No matter what the project, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® has you covered!
Thanks so much for stopping by today and allowing me to share my altered wooden canoe with you! I hope you’ve been inspired to create something fabulous! Until next time, happy crafting!
