Come On Along.....

Summer is here!  The first of June means we are in full school's out count down mode and headed to summer!  It also means the Technique Junkie Designers are hoping along with new images and a blog hop full of inspiration.  Won't you come along?  To start at the beginning, you can head to the Designer's Blog.  There you will find the entire list of designers who are hopping and a few other details too!  If you've been hopping all along, you have just come from Kathy Stacy's blog.
My first project features the beautiful background image called Sea Urchins.  I'm not gonna lie....I totally had to google sea urchins.  I really had no idea how to color rendition might not be realistic, after all, but it sure is fun to look at!  I used a variety of distress colors and some daubers to add the rainbow hues.  To finish things off, I added a simple sentiment, Beach Day.

My second project features the Seagrass Lighthouse image along with an sentiment called Better Things.  I started this piece by heat embossing the lighthouse image and then water coloring a sunset sky.  I really love to use my distress inks to water color--it makes me feel so arty!

You can purchase the entire new release at a discount until the 8th of the month, so be sure to head over to the store when you've made it through the whole thing!  You are now off to see what my pal, Beth Norman, has instore for you!  Enjoy!

TTFN, Be Awesome!  Jane


  1. Oh, who needs realism--great coloring! Love the watercolored sky in second project!

  2. Love, love, love them. The watercolor card is so gorgeous. I need this stamp.

  3. Love the sea urchin card for its color and the lighthouse card for its serenity

  4. Your shells made me fall out of my chair with it's beauty. I didn't realize they came in various colours either. You certainly did justice to the stamp. Your lighthouse is watercoloured beautifully. I must open my unopened packages of Distress Markers and try my hand at watercolouring. I've only had the markers for about five months -- LOL.

  5. I love the light house card! Beautiful!

  6. Love the cards and the colors you chose.
