hello crafty friends!
it is JUNE already and it is time for the CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS' monthly challenge. this month we've got a beautiful inspirational picture for you -
the challenge is to use the photo above as inspiration and the twist is to add something nautical to your project. let us know how you were inspired by the picture. REMEMBER you only need to be inspired by one element of the photo perhaps the colors, water, sunset , lighthouse, etc.
here is some inspiration from me -
"BY THE SEA"
for my background i used white cardstock, which i altered with PRIMA marketing mask and PANPASTELS. then i added a second pattern layer on top using DISTRESSED CHICKEN WIRE stamp and RANGER brown archival ink.
i used PRIMA marketing "seashore" collection and a lot of different chippies to embellish my layout.
for the white baubles i used CE 6×6″ lattice panel circles, which i altered with white embossing powder and brown self adhesive pearls.
and because the twist of this month challenge was to add a nautical element to out projects i used CE nautical anchor chipboard...
...and CE nautical compass chipboard to embellish my page. i altered both of them with TIM HOLTZ distress embossing powder.
i used the word #SUN form CE social hash tags chipboard set to finish off my design.
i hope i managed to persuade you to join the CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS' june challenge!
i can't wait to see your creations!
