Free to be you

Hey there . Hope you all are enjoying your summer. We have been swimming, eating ice cream, driving, enjoying the warm sun and travelling to new places. I always love the longer days and quiet nights as we sit outside unwinding from the days adventures!

  Steal some time away to get your artsy on this summer~!  I put together a fun bright layout by layering these gorgeous papers from Donna Salazars Antiquities line mixed with some scraps from Pink Paislee and Simple Stories... I had fun cutting and spritzing and being artistic! Donna's muted, shabby tones blend perfectly with other manufacturers accents and patterns to create a fun layering of grungy goodness!


I used some Smooch Spritz in River Mossy to add this rich blue coloring to a paper doily and a light coat of it onto the Artistic paper journal tag.

Here you can see the layering of spritzed and distressed pattern papers.

These dragon fly accents are by Spellbinders from the Fanciful Flight collection.

They are also spritzed to keep the color scheme consistent . Add some Fairy Dust Glitter to give them a transluscent look.

So I hope I"ve inspired you to squeeze some crafty time for yourself and try something new, play around and have fun this summer with your art!
