sea salt tag

Good afternoon :) I have a little tag to share today...I totally moved it around on various papers for about an hour trying to make it into a card!!....but decided   I like it best just as a tag/bookmark :)

Here is a close-up again to show the sea salt and liquid technique I used. You can actually still see a few grains of salt I didn't brush off well enough :)

I found this video on You Tube that shows this technique.
I can't wait to try it on glossy paper like she did in the video! Someone in the comments also mentioned that coarse sand does the opposite to find some sand :)
I am going to enter this in Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge: What do you say?  and into Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes

Hope you are having a great day!! Hugs TRace

Papertrey July Blog Hop Challenge

Good morning! I can't believe it has been 3 weeks since I have been posting regularly! Summer time really keeps me out of the craft room...too busy training for triathlons, doing garden work, and playing with friends :)
I was fortunate to spend five awesome days with a wonderful bunch of scrappin friends, and we did manage to get some crafting accomplished in amongst our water fun:)  
I have a card to share for this months Papertrey July Blog Hop Challenge:

Here is the gorgeous inspiration photo:

I totally gained inspiration/CASED this beautiful card, but I can't find the artist or link:( If anyone knows....please let me know so I can add credit here.
Here are a few photos of the girls scrap get together...

Funny how I don't have any crafting photos :)
Have a wonderful day! Hugs, TRace

Mixed Media :)

Good evening....I have a mixed media board to share :) 

The board base started out with a sea salt technique where you sprinkle salt on wet ink, let it dry completely and the salt absorbs some of the ink leaving behind a mottled texture. Here is a photo of the board with the dried salt on it:

Now I have a baggie of really pretty sea salt and not sure what to do with it....any suggestions :)

Have a great evening...I will be back tomorrow with another post and some summer fun pics.  Hugs, TRace

Good morning! I have a card to share that was inspired by the photo from Papertrey ink's Blog Hop, although I did not have time to play that day....I loved all the beautiful inspiration I saw so I "needed" to give it a go. This weeks Make it Monday #72 is to create your own embellishments :) LOVE that!

I used three different stamps sets to create the flower fun! I can see making up a few of these just for fun, would be perfect to just to have a few handy for a card when the mojo is lacking.

Here is the inspiration photo I used from PTI: 
Have a wonderful day!!  Hugs, TRace
