First off, it is my day to post over at Pink by Design so head on over and check out the fun Easter basket I made ;-)
Both of my little guys are in Awana at our church and last week was the Grand Prix. Each child gets a wooden car to put together and decorate and then they race each other on a pretty cool downhill track. My husband is in charge of putting the tires and weights on, and it is my job to decorate them! (My kids are still a little young to do their own)
My youngest loves Lightning McQueen so I tried to make his car resemble him the best I could. I used vinyl for the lightning and then used my cars digital kit for the 95 and Rusteze symbols which I put on with modge podge. The rest of the details were painted on with acrylic paint from Michaels.
I decided to do something a little different for my other son's car and make it a beach theme. I painted the car blue, sponged on brown around the bottom to look like sand and then used vinyl for the surfboards, palm trees and crab. I then painted on the eyes and the bumper/fender. All of the vinyl cuts were found in the silhouette store and I scaled them down to fit the car. I love how small it can cut and still give that detail!
My boys were excited to race their cars and ended up getting 2nd and 3rd place for design ;-)
Just another fun way to use the silhouette for something other than paper projects!!
Have a great day!
