Master Detective Arrow with Graphic 45

“Well my dear Graphic 45er’s who doesn’t like a good Master Detective project!  What better way but to create a project showing the way to uncovering the mystery of your creative space! I knew the 12” arrow I purchased would be just right with Graphic 45 Master Detective for my project…  plus, it would be a great addition to my studio because behind every door, underneath every piece of paper or sitting right there in front of me there is always something to be discovered. I know you will know what I am talking about since most designers are in the same situation…so have fun creating your own Master Detective project to hang in your creative space; it will be a great reminder to never stop looking around to see what you will discover, what you miss placed or what you forgot was purchase.” Pam

Photo 1: Adhere pattern paper to top of arrow.
Photo 2: Cut excess paper away with xacto knife. Sand edges.

Photo 3: Apply Boss Gloss to top of chipboard pieces; sprinkle rust embossing powder over the top. Heat set embossing powder.
Photo 4: Fussy cut two set of pattern paper images from the Master Detectives collection.

Adhere prepared chipboard to arrow along with fussy cut pieces that are layered together with pop dots.

Add metal scissors to top of arrow.

I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial on how to create a Master Detective Arrow and try to make yourself a fun home décor item. Hugs Pam
