It’s Wednesday and time for another challenge over at Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog!
This challenge is hosted by Kathy (Kathy by Design), who has chosen the theme BY THE SEA …Kathy says, “It’s summertime, and our minds turn toward the shore where we find sparkling sands, delicate shells and refreshing breezes. This sets the theme for our latest BY THE SEA challenge. Let’s take a virtual beach trip by creating any kind of vintage or shabby chic project that features a nautical or beach theme and color palette..”
This is the perfect challenge to return to the Frilly and Funkie design team after taking a break for a few months to move.
Our new harbour view inspired the tag I’ve made for this challenge.
This idea-ology photo booth photo reminded me of a summer tradition here in Denmark, where the graduating students ride around town on the back of a float wearing white graduation caps celebrating their success with their class.
I used a spritz and flick technique that I learned from taking Tim Holtz’s Creative Chemistry 101 online class for my tag base.
I love the versatility of this linen ribbon. By pulling and working it with your fingers you get this cool net look. Usually I would blend some distress ink over the top, but this time I left it natural to look like fishing net.
I added a word band, but it was begging to be distress crayoned!
It is SO much easier to add distress crayon than paint over the word bands, literally a 5 second job. I love how it makes the word bands pop and by rubbing gently with some kitchen paper you get this cool distressed look.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you will find time to join in the challenge and pop over to Frilly and Funkie challenge blog to see the rest of the DT’s projects. All the products I used are available from The Funkie Junkie Boutique.
