Anything goes - I can do that lol! We just got back from our amazing Incentive Trip to Italy and then the Greek Isles courtesy of Stampin' Up! and I'm beat. But when I saw it was anything goes - well - I can do this. So check out these fun projects and be sure to hop on through to all of the blogs on the list.
So for my projects I am sharing cards and a sampler. The Ocean has been my happy, peaceful, renewal place for years. The beauty of the sun, clouds and water; the crashing of the waves, when I'm there all stress is gone. A bit back we moved from California to Arizona - and believe me I miss the ocean! So I am just so in love with the "Come Sail Away" Suite of products and could not wait to make up some type of Home Decor piece with it - so here is the sampler I came up with -
I chose Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Crumb Cake and Gray Granite as my colors - and I used a ton of sets to create this - but it was oh so much fun. I started with a standard black 8 1/2" x 11" frame that can stand or be hung up. It has a pop out glass piece on the front. I used the black lining from inside for the base and then layered the images.
We made these at a recent Technique Club and I knew that this would not go with everyone's decor - so I also gave an option of just making cards from the layers - and they could have the frame to make something else. The cards are pretty much just the same - here they are -
Panel 1 card -
Panel 2 card -
Panel 3 card with the center circle -
Panel 4 card -
Basically I made the four panels and center just like in the frame - but then instead mounted them on full size cards. This would also make a great coordinating gift set for someone who loves the sea.
