So why not play along - join the challenge with the chance to win $25 at the Gecko Galz shop!
The past month or so, here in the UK, has definitely been Beach weather but this week its been thunderstorms, rain and more rain. Still warm though, but heavy, claustrophobic warm, it should be heating up again by the end of the week, so still plenty of Beach time left!
My first sample is a pack of four notelets, I chose four black and white images from 'Vintage Summer'.
Using Craft Artist Professional 2, I resized them to fit A5 cards, added an orange (Sunshine!!) border and then printed them out, then I just cut them out following the edge of the border and stuck them onto the card blanks. Hey presto retro notelets!
For my second sample I decided to do some atc's digitally and then print them out,
I picked three ladies from 'Summer Sweeties' and digitally cut them away from their pictures. Now, as the challenge is Beach Blanket Bingo, I decided to use a bingo card from 'Alter Me' as the background to each atc, I faded it away then added the lady and used the sentiments from 'Junk Journal Pages'.
I accidently printed two copies so I decided to cut the sentiments out and stuck them over themselves - edged in Cerise promarker - the pink is for Breast Cancer, and these 3 atcs are my tribute to a close friend of mine who has suffered the worst kind of breast cancer and beaten its sorry ass to the end of the world and beyond! Be confident, Be brave and Be amazing pretty much sums up what I think she is, I am so proud to know her and call her my friend. And she'd kill me if she knew I was being soppy....
