I’m getting a little crafty time in before my weekend at work, I wanted to try my hand at the Summertime Blues Challenge going on at Flying Unicorn. Denise posted this challenge and her example was fabulous. And seeing I  am having such summertime blues right now I needed a little pick me up. This is a picture of Lacy’s 3 beautiful daughters, she has such an eye for awesome pictures, and this is So Summery.


So there were Denise’s guidelines to the Summertime Blues challenge.

  • Stencil – I used TCW Love Post
  • At least 1 Mixed Media-paints, gesso, mists..etc. – oh yeah I hit this one.
  • Chipboard –Precious from FabScraps and  A chippie from Blue Fern Studios
  • At least 2 different stamps – Prima Butterfly Stamp set, and Treasured memories 6
  • At least 3 embellishments  –Tear drop crystal adournements, tiny pink flat back crystals, wood accents Prima Forever Green.
  • At least 8 flowers – This was so welcoming, bring it on only 8. lol
  • You can use more than the required items, but you must use what is listed to be eligible to enter.

 I love this paper Crush paper collection from Authentique. It worked perfect for the blue part of this challenge. I added the accents of pink to match the flowers.
