Last Friday, over at The Pink Peony of Le Jardin, I saw Robyn's creation of The Mayflower after she was inspired by seeing Pottery Barn's version. After I saw that, I just knew I wanted to try to make one. I loved the fact that she used a bamboo placemat for the ship, but I had to use what I already had, so I dug into my scrapbook paper supply.
Here's my version...
I did however, go out and buy the blue glass rocks. I had this vision of the ship being in the water and beached at Plymouth Rock.
I had a pair of linen pants, that I had attempted to make probably 15 years ago, that I cut up and used for the sails.
Someday, when I just whip something up, I'll try to make the effort to record the step-by-step process so I can do a tutorial.
I love how the glass beads are creating a reflection like water on the side of the boat. Do you think my "Plymouth Rock" is corny?
I also found these two little pilgrims at the Dollar store. I think they totally add to my little historical moment.
I'm linking up here. Go check them all out to see all the other incredible creations.
