Full Reveal of Kathy Peterson's Design My Adirondack Chair

{August 17, 2010}

by Julianna Hudgins

A huge thank you to Kathy Peterson and Cedar Store for inviting me to be a part of the Design My Adirondack Blog Hop. I had so much fun designing my chair. My inspiration came from my trip to Puerto Rico this past June where I taught several workshops for Sizzix. I met the most amazing women while I was there. They truly filled my heart with love and creative motivation. I will never forget you and the joy that you brought to me. Te amo mucho! This chair is for you!

I used my Sizzix Big Shot and some of my favorite dies.
Sizzix Big Shot Machine, Bigz Tattered Florals Die by Tim Holtz, Originals Phrase, Enjoy Die, Originals Phrase, Dream Die, Bigz Flower 3-D Die and Bigz Decorative Accent, Swirl #3 Die

I also used white vinyl for my flowers, Viva Decor modeling grass, beaded fringe, peacock feathers, cabochons, Hot Fix crystals, Zebra fabric and LOTS of Aleene's Tacky Glue.

I painted my chair Turquoise Sea SR1109 Valspar Signature Color Seaside Retreat from Lowe's.
Then I laid out my designs in the form of tattoos on what I would call the shoulder, arm, belly and ankle of the chair.
Here's the shoulder with Hot Fix crystals running down its arm, titled Enjoy Life!
Here is my chair's belly, titled Dream Big!

And here is its ankle with a little swirl and layered tattered flower.
