Summertime Friends Blog Hop

Hello and happy weekend to all! I’m hopping with a few friends today to celebrate summer and the US holiday, Independence Day. I’m so glad you can join in on the fun and inspiration!

We are starting the hop at Taylor Usry’s blog where all the details about the hop can be found. Even if you see it here in my post, she will be the official list and guidelines keeper.

If you have been hopping from the start, then Mary should have been your last stop before arriving here.

If you feel like a chance at a prize we have just the ticket for you! Go back to the beginning of the blog hop list and comment your way through as your creative mind catalogs all the great projects. You have until Tuesday, July 5th at 6:00 PM EST to comment on as many blogs as you can. Winners will be drawn from random comments on blogs, and announced on Wednesday July 7th (on Taylor's blog.




My project today is inspired from the new mixed media trend and a few outstanding artists like Sherry Cheever who I’ve come across for inspiration in “Chunky Art”. I've made a wooden price tag cut from a 2 x 4 plywood using my miter saw (love it), and some old touch up paint sanded away for the worn look. I combined a couple of flower techniques made from unused coffee filters as the paper. My blossom nestabilities for the shape and some old college watercolors for the color.



It's time to stroll on to Erin's blog for some adorable inspiration!
