When Miss Thing was teeny, I took them both to a park in Canby and our social butterfly, Mr. Mitchell, immediately made a friend and they started playing pirate. He used his hand to improvise an eye patch and it just cracked me up! I inked the chipboard letters with the included red ink pad and then used Glossy Accents on them as well to give a super dimensional look. I also Glossied-up (new technical term) on of the square chipboard buttons after I inked it brown then I adhered it over a piece of the navy ribbon to mimic a pirates belt and buckle.
Quick tip~If you use a ton of Glossy Accents on your pieces (me! me!) make sure you give them enough time to dry. I got this layout put all together except for the chipboard pieces. I put them on a piece of wax paper, Glossied them and then let them dry overnight. I also outlined the piece first and then filled in with tons of the stuff. This keeps it from spilling over the edges so you can get more of it on your pieces.My second layout is a quick documentation of Mickey's pajama day at preschool.
Finally, a more formal Thinking of You card. I went a little nuts and used up almost every rub-on in the package. Hee!
So there you have it! The June Dixie Pieces kit, School's Out! Check back tomorrow for the sweet little mini album I made with DP's add-on kit!
