While attending the CK Convention in Portland this year, I fell in love with Keller's Creations mini license plates. I have used the full sized ones for a wall hanging in our house, but as soon as I was the mini's I knew I needed a new project! I bought six of them and decided to use them to create a wall hanging for my nephew Landon's room.
I also puchased a package of cute blue and khaki patterned paper and matching buttons at Keller's Creations as well. I used those as the jumping off point for the solid papers that came from my stash. It was perfect because Landon's room is a nice shade of light blue!
I cut Landon's name out using Jubilee, creating a shadow and the overlay. I inked the edges to make sure that it showed on similar colored paper. Landon's room is decorated in robots, but I don't have a robot cartridge! I used George (my favorite cart!) to create this cute robot. I then slightly expanded the size of it to create a black shadow. I was inking the edges of the robot when I dropped my ink pad on the grey robot! It was awful. Luckily, I was able to ink over the entire robot to give it a "rusty look." That was a quick save! I added a few Keller's buttons with cream fiber tied through. (Hint: I used glue dots for the buttons and googly eyes so they wouldn't fall off!) I inked the edges of everything in brown ink for a cohesive look!
I attached each license plate together with a blue shaded fibers. I cut the duck from Create a Critter! (My brother and I are HUGE Oregon Duck fans!) A couple more googly eyes for character! Each mini license plate has a few buttons on it to add continuity.
What little boy doesn't like milk? I used this from Locker Talk and cut the first layer (the milk and carton) in white craft foam!!! It made the milk look like it had real dimension. I then popped up the center part of the red milk carton with pop dots and inked the edges of everything. I used a White Milky Pen to write "Milk."
The dog is cut from the last few remnants of my brown fuzzy paper. (I think it's from Every Day Paper Dolls.) I used a brown pen to add the accents and then layered on a cute pink nose and googly eyes. I inked the edges again!
The balloon was a simple cut, but I cut off the string that was attached and tied on a real cream fiber. I then flocked the patterned orange paper with orange flock to add a little interest.
Lastly, I added a car from Every Day Paper Dolls. I used black brads for the tires and added a details with black paper (pop dots behind the windows!) and a black pen for details. Lastly, I added a cute fabric tag with a curly q on it to mimic the "exhaust."
Hope you enjoy!
