Seaside Summer Mixed Media Tag for Frilly & Funkie “In the Good Old Summertime” Challenge
Hello, Friends! I have the privilege of hosting the new challenge over on the Frilly and Funkie Blog. I’ve prepared a lovely Seaside Summer Mixed Media tag to share with you today, but first, let’s take a look at the challenge theme, shall we?
In the Good Old Summertime Challenge
It’s time for those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer. Whether you vacation at the beach, in the mountains, or enjoy a relaxing “Staycation” in your own back yard, your challenge is to create a vintage or shabby chic project that shows what you love best about summer. Use summer colors in your project, and be sure to tell us in your post what you love about summer, and how you’ve represented that in your project.
Seaside Summer Mixed Media Tag
My favorite place to be in the summer (or anytime, really) is at the beach. Our family has taken a week at the beach together for over 25 years now. The beach is where we go to relax, unwind and bond as a family.
One of the things I love the most about the beach is the amazing range of colors. I tried to incorporate those soft sandy tans, blues, greens and golds by using Distress Oxide inks on this jumbo manila tag background.
I added embossing, some collage work and lots of different mediums to try and capture all the various textures found at the shore.
