What a fabulous challenge for this week over at BBTB2! We had to use a pineapple cut so I cut my pineapple from the Paper Dolls cartridge. Living in Florida now, I wanted to create wall decor for our home. I cut the pineapple twice, one from yellow patterned cardstock and another from green patterned cardstock. I traced it onto brown cardstock and hand cut a shadow for it (the cartridge doesn't have a shadow, or layers for the image). I also traced and cut the straw from a red striped paper, just like the old time soda fountain straws! I embossed the yellow cardstock and inked it in brown. I took gift ribbon, and curled it in different directions then attached it to the leaves of the pineapple, adding a green flower and rhinestone to the center. I wrapped the entire pineapple with bakers twine and attached it with pop dots to the wall hanging. The background for the wall art is an 8.5 x 11 piece of corrugated cardboard, covered with melon colored paper and topped with a border punched glitter stripe cardstock. It made me think of a beach towel! I then added alpha letters to spell "Welcome", and paper flowers with sea shell centers. Go see the other designer's creations at BBTB2! Have a wonderful week!
