Flourishes Timeless Tuesday blog challenge #122. Maki is the hostess and asked that we do at least one circle and one square shape on our creations. My circles are the sentiment and birdhouse entrances and the square is behind my sentiment circle.
I'm using the Flourishes Home Tweet Home stamp set. I hung the birdhouses on my wall/fence and stamped a branch.
I wanted to try this technique of direct to paper and make an ocean whitewashed faux wall. Lydia aka Understand Blue has a tutorial for this technique on Splitcoaststampers...see Resources.
This is a quick post as I'm being carried shopping by a friend for my birthday to a wonderful scrapbook store and probably hitting Michael's, Hobby Lobby, and Jo-Ann's today. Lunch, also. What a fun day ahead.
I'm entering my card in this challenge: Crafting for All Seasons Challenge Blog #3-Summer-what summer means to you. Summer means being at the beach to me, although this doesn't show the ocean, I want it to be an outside fence or wall at the beach where I hang my birdhouses for the summer.
