Hello friends!! I hope you had a good weekend! We have a long weekend here since today is a public holiday (national day). Anton and I went on a bike trip on Saturday. I am so happy that he now cycles well enough to be able to do that, because it is one of my favourite things to do. We found a beach at a lake and stayed there most of the day. He discovered a bush full of really pretty blue dragonflies and I am hoping to make a project inspired by them soon.
This week at the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge we are featuring products by Paper Artsy, and our theme is Summer Garden. You don't have to use Paper Artsy products to join, but it is always fun if you do.
I created a summer garden with stamps and watercolours in my large Dylusions journal, aiming for a sketch book look. I love flower stamps, since they are so pretty, versatile and can be used for so many different themes. Paper Artsy has a lot of wonderful sets with flower stamps. This was really fun to do and I took some step photos.
Here you can see the two stamp sets that I used. The ESN12 from Sara Naumann, which was used for the sentiment and for textures, and the ELB22 by Lin Brown.
The grass has a lot of texture, with the painting, embossing, stamping, masking and doodling. I also splattered black watercolour paint on the page here and there.
Here's another view of the grass. I used just the first part of the sentiment from the flower set.
I hope you will join us in our Summer Garden challenge. As every week, you have a chance to win a $50 gift voucher from Simon Says Stamp. You have until Monday 8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in.
