At the Beach
It's time for a new blog hop from Sparkle N Sprinkle and this month our theme is At the Beach. The blog hop goes from May 9 - May 10. So you have plenty of time to check out all the wonderful creations.
To create my tropical island, I've used a couple stamps from both the Surfin' Woody set (Beach Fence and Palm Hammock) and the Serena Mermaid set. I started out by stamping the Palm Hammock image and then masking it so I could design the sponged background. Distress Inks were used for the backdrop. In addition, I added Mudd Puddles (Tropical Beach) to the island. If you've not used this product before, it's something you should try because you get lots of texture when the mixture dries. It really does look and feel like grains of sand.
I colored my image with Distress Markers and paper pieced the hammock. The sea shells and the sentiment are from the Serena Mermaid set and I heat embossed both of these with Clear Detail embossing powder. For specific details, you can always visit my SNS Art Gallery.
Hopefully you arrived at Anne-Made from Karalee. If not, you will want to start at the beginning - SNS Blog and go from there. Plus all the details are posted on the SNS Blog as well as a complete list of all the designers participating. Be sure to leave each of us a comment as there will be winners selected from three Mystery Hosts, as well as an overall winner. Now it's time to head on over to April and see what she's designed just for you.
