Summertime, Summertime, Sum-, Sum-, Summertime!

Happy Hump Day!  I hope you're all having a great week and are getting to enjoy some fun things this summer.  Here in Arkansas, we've had rain EVERY SINGLE DAY for the past few weeks.  I don't remember a summer like this, and I grew up in Arkansas!  We need a few days WITHOUT rain so everything can dry out, and the kids can get outside to play some.

The Design Team's Challenge this month is to show what we love to do in the summer by using Linnie Blooms' canvas, stencils, and/or masks.  In my family, we LOVE to sit outside and grill while the kids play in the yard, so I created this fun outdoor grillin' card:

First, I painted the canvas sun with watercolors, using yellow around the edges and a combination of red, orange, and yellow in the center.  While that dried, I painted the bottom of my cardstock with green watercolor for hills and the top with a combination of blue, red, orange, yellow, and purple watercolor trying to simulate a sunset.  Using some stamps I found in my stash, I then created the scene with the grill, deck chair and umbrella, and tub of beer & wine.  I used a couple sentiments to finish off the scene, then I adhered the sun with Liquid Stitch fabric adhesive.  I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out!

Here are the supplies I used:

Thanks for stopping by to check out my project!  Be sure to hop over to the Linnie Blooms shop to pick up your own canvas pieces and try your hand at creating a project showing what YOU love to do in the summertime.  Have a great rest of your week, and be sure to come back to see what the rest of the Design Team has in store!
