I’m delighted to be guesting for Concord & 9th this month. I will be having fun with their new release soon (see below) but for today I thought I’d pull out this previously released but oh so fun Pop Art Pineapple to create a miniature focal point that still packs a punch! All supplies are linked at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used.
Concord & 9th are a relatively new company taking the world by storm with their creative ideas which are always bang on trend too. It was a hoot to meet one of the owners, Greg, at CHA and he was such a trooper and totally unfazed by having lunch with a bunch of slightly crazy women – when we get together we can be a bit loud ;) You can see these new June products over at Concord & 9th and Simon Says Stamp.
Back to the pineapple! I started by stamping the two parts, leaves and body, in Antique Linen Distress Ink and then used that as a guide to watercolor on top. I added highlights of gold paint to take things up a notch. I foam mounted the pineapple to a Stitched Rectangle of Arches watercolor card with a quick wash of blue watercolor. In doing so I trapped a swirl of gold thread too.
I stamped the sentiment on the banner from the set and then lightly watercolored before adding on top of the pineapple and then scattering a few sequins around. This panel is then foam mounted on a Fog card base splattered with Heidi Swapp gold spray.
I will be sharing projects with the new release later in the month so keep an eye out for those :D
