July Challenge “BEACH, SUMMER, VACATION” – Enter to Win

We enter into summer with a challenge we are all very excited about…”Summer at the Beach.” Whether you have been to the beach, live by the beach, plan to travel to the beach or just love the beach, this is the challenge for you.  We are looking for creative projects that remind us of the sand, shore, waves, shells, rocks, mermaids and more.  The colors for this challenge are the softer side of the beach with blues, turquoise, naturals and whites.  Mixed media art, layouts, trays, crates, banners, cards….your art your way. Just stick with these colors, add a little beach touch and you are good to go.  


Every challenge has a great prize and this one is no different.  Feast your eyes on all these goodies from 7gypsies, Tattered Angels and Canvas Corp that were gathered by the Crew for you.  


Our 3nd Challenge this year is all about the Water, Summer & Vacation! Most people love the summer and look forward to the summer vacation with joy. We would love to hear your story – what is special about summer where you live? Do you travel or stay at home to enjoy the local surroundings? Do you go to the beach or do you favor a pool?  Tell us – what is summer and vacation to YOU! Share a memory or a dream.  Or just create with inspiration from the pictures in the moodboard. To participate all you need to do is link up your project using the linky tool at the bottom of this post.
