Garden Shed Artist Team Challenge

Welcome to the Club Scrap Artist Team Challenge.... This month in keeping with the Garden Shed kit the Club Scrap Artist Team was challenged to use some sort of wood embellishment in their creations.  It could be some element actually made of wood, a wood grain stamp or embossing folder, wood grain paper, etc.

Well I gave it some thought and was so inspired by the kit theme that I went ahead and made a Garden Shed Journal and holder....



I made the "holder" from book board glued together with CS Book Binding Glue.  I then painted it with green paint and added all sorts of foliage and flowers.  I had a length of picket fence that I aged with a touch of white acrylic paint and chocolate brown glaze from Deco Art.  The little welcome mat is actually a wood label from the kit that I painted and free-hand wrote welcome.


The album covers are chipboard from the pizza box the kits come it and some of the papers from the kit.  I used popsicle sticks to make the door which I also glazed with the same DecoArt medium.  The dark brown pieces on the door and roof are actually a fun foam that I heated with my heat tool and put tiny striations in to mimic wood grain.

(sorry for the blurry pic)

Here is a picture of the door open...you could put any sentiment you like behind the door.  I used a small velcro circle to hold it shut.


Inside I used some of the pattern and plain cardstock from the kit as dividers - in between the dividers are sheets of watercolor and mixed media papers to alter/decorate as desired.


And there you have it...my garden shed journal made from the Garden Shed kit!
Hope you enjoyed this bit of inspiration.
