Whiff of Joy August Post 1.

Good morning everyone! Today I am sharing a new Whiff of Joy creation. This is my first Whiff of Joy post for August. Can you believe it is August? Wow! Christmas sure is coming up fast .. Yikes! And the kids are back in school! I can't believe how fast the year is flying by. I think it goes by faster the older I get LOL!!

Alright.. here is my creation:







This is Helmsman Henry. Isn't he adorable!! I colored him up with my Copic Markers. I did a bit of decoupage. I added stitching around the edge and then stitching along the edge of the photo where the banners are. I added the banners with the different papers from this wonderful Carta Bella Ahoy There paper pad.  I created the Thanks for guiding me through the rough seas sentiment and I've added some sequin. The inside has the die cut piece which was cut with my Cameo and a few sequin on the inside as well. That's it! I hope you love Henry as much as I do :)

Copic:
  • Henry: E11, E13, E15, E35, E51
  • Pylon Wood: E33, E35, E37
  • Blue: B24, B26, B37
  • White: E40, E41, E42
  • Pylon Top: E50, E51, E53
  • Pylon Bottom: C3, C5, C7, C9
  • Ship Helm: C0, C1, C3, C5, C7, C9
  • Mouth: R59
  • Tongue: R22
  • Tail: R20, R22
