I've had this one on my "to do" list this month and got around to working on it yesterday and today. I knew when I saw the sketch at UmWowStudio I was going to follow the hexagon pattern on it, as I love UmWow's hexagon chipboard. I basically followed the sketch and knew I had the perfect picture for my layout, a daisy from a planter on my deck. Now there is a story behind the planter. I actually call it my "magical" planter, as none of the perennial plants in it I planted. Years ago I would place some annuals in it and then stopped as I would always forget about the planter when it came to watering. About five years ago plants appeared in the planter and have made their return every year.
I recently bought some Tim Holtz distress markers and used the Wild Honey one around my torn edges. After I apply the marker, I dipped a paint brush in some water and and painted the edges to bring a little of the color into my white background and then inked it with some SEI bark ink.
Here is the June sketch from UmWow:
Here I used an UmWow butterfly chipboard which I stamped with a flower background from Dylusions Background Love stamps. I then applied some yellow liquid applique. I also used the Dylusions stamp on parts of my background.
Here I used a UmWow daisy chipboard.
I painted the top of it with some Americana Marigold paint and then sprinkled on some yellow flock. I also watered down the marigold paint to add some splatters on my page.
A little cluster to top it off!
It was a hot and humid day today, perfect for staying indoors and crafting. Thunderstorms are in the forecast for everyday this week and throughout the weekend. It puts a damper on outdoor plans, but then again it's a good excuse to stay inside and create!
Thanks for stopping by!
