MTTC theme to make it beachy focus starts 25 June 2021

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My Time To Craft challenge blog has a great new theme challenge that got my artsy-crafty heart excited to try something a bit different. I wanted to do a framed paper-crafted home décor that will go in a glass photo frame very soon. I also wanted to do a paper peeling type layered collage so imagine a light filled airy sky that transitions to water, some grass, and some soil/sand. It's as if the flamingo is dancing on the beach...maybe even on her own island! :)

What: my design team project

Who/what: MTTC challenge blog #460

When : starts 6/25/2021 for 13-14 days

Why: new theme challenge 'make it beachy'

Have a flamingo summer! =

Check to see what the other DT members have made for this theme and read the participation details:



a. cardstocks are either manufactured by Neenah/Astrobrights or Pen + Gear

b. wooden die-cut palm trees were a brighter painted green; I applied green glitter paint pen on top of each tree

c. palm trees and stickers were found at Dollar Tree

d. the digital image "Flamingo Dance" is from Createful Heart Designs and colored with markers then somewhat fussy cut to make it appear like the flamingo is dancing on its own beach

link to purchase CHD digital images has been switched from Zibbet to Etsy; CHD owner and graphic artist Mary Smith was notified this week that Zibbet is shutting down July 1st, I believe. So use this Etsy link=

*note the company is based in Indiana, USA; I'm in Illinois but somehow on my computer the prices are coming up as British pounds...hopefully this is just me and doesn't affect where you are....
