Windy here! I hope that you all are having a great start to your Wednesday and a great start to your summer. Oh yes, today is the day! The first official day of summer!
Are you ready for all of the fun things that summer holds? Like outdoor picnics and trips to the pool?
I remember one of my favorite things to do as a kid in the summer was to collect and press flowers and leaves. Oh and the summer that my mom bought me a box of solar print paper. Wowie! I was in heaven!
Do you remember making solar prints (or cyanotypes) when you were a kid?
The “Playing with Paint” section of the July/August 2012 issue inspired me to create a card of my own that is reminiscent of a solar print. But this card also puts some of the fun spray mists that I have in my crafty stash to good use.
It’s pretty simple to create your own. Find foliage from your yard. Lay it on a piece of cardstock.
Spray with spray mist.
Then you allow your image to dry. Stamp a sentiment and mount on a card base.
So who wants to win a collection of Tattered Angels spray mists and paints, a set of card bases by Canvas Corp, and a copy of the July/August 2012 issue so you can start playing with paint? Just leave a comment here telling me what your favorite summer crafting activity is. All comments must be received by Friday, June 22nd at 5pm MDT.
Here’s to a great summer!
