Surf, Sun, and Stickles blog hop
We're in the midst of a heat wave and what better way to cool off then indoors crafting with some Stickles?! This month's hop is all about using Stickles on those fun, summer-themed projects we all love to create.
I wanted to make a home décor project this month, so I decided on wooden blocks. Here they are all together.
I used Echo Park Splash 12x12 papers on these blocks, because it seemed like the perfect papers for our theme. I also used the stickers that were in the paper pack, and glitzed them up a bit with Stickles. I cut the letters out on the Cricut using the Type Candy Font cartridge. I'll show you a close up of each letter so you can see how they sparkle with the Stickles on them!
For each of the letters, I used watercolor paints and Stickles together, painting the mixture together to coat the letters. I used yellow Stickles on the sun.
The stripes of the fish are filled in with Tropical Tangerine Stickles.
The rim of the sand bucket has True Blue Stickles on it. The shovel has Goldenrod distress Stickles on it.
And, finally, the beach ball has a little Crystal Stickles on it to make it pop.
This is my final blog hop as an All That Stickles design team member. I'm moving on after this month. My father's failing health and too many commitments are making it hard to keep up with everything. I've enjoyed this experience very much and will miss my opportunities to share with you.
I'm giving away one last chance to win blog candy while on this team. I have some Stickles to give away (of course), plus ribbon, buttons, a 6x6 paper pad and brads. To be eligible, please follow my blog and leave a comment on this post. I will pick the winner next Tuesday when I have a tutorial on the All That Stickles blog.
