Love Me Some Kraft

Hello freinds, I was in charge of Friday Focus this week over at Frilly and Funkie so this is basically a repeat post, but I know some of you might not be readers of that blog and didn't want you to miss out.

I really love the warm country feel that projects made with kraft paper gives me, from corrugated cardboard all the way to the more sophisticated feel of Tim Holtz's kraft core and kraft resist papers.  Here's a little wall hanging I created using the corrugated cardboard that I sell in the boutique as a base.
I used the Butterfly On-the-Edge die as well as the Distressed Doily die to make the top edge and the free hanging bottom section.  Everything was given a brush of Picket Fence crackle paint. The flower was cut from the kraft colored corrugated cardboard plus one layer from the white corrugated cardboard.
The flower sections were cut using both the Tattered Florals and Mini Tattered Florals movers and shapers and were sponged on the edges with Vintage Photo DI and then coated lightly with Enamelware EP.

The backing for the floral resin medallion was also sponged with Vintage Photo and embossed with Enamelware EP.  The "enjoy the journey" was cut with the Artful Stacked Words decorative strip die from Kraft Core paper and lightly sanded with my Sanding Grip to reveal the kraft core.
I've provided thumbnail links to The Funkie Junkie Boutique for all the products used here that I sell.  And be sure to check out our Friday Focus section.  The kraft paper products will be on sale for one full week from Friday through the following Thursday.  PLEASE NOTE, HOWEVER, THAT I WILL BE TAKING A FEW DAYS OFF AND WILL NOT BE SHIPPING ORDERS FROM APRIL 29TH THROUGH MAY 7TH so order soon if you don't want to wait until I get back.
