Summertimes

The air is heavy and the heat makes it vibrate in the merciless sun. It’s not hard to remember a vacation in Mexico a couple of years ago. But honestly… It’s warmer here then it was in Mexico at the time.sommartiderI’ve played around with different kinds of mists and mediums. The two background papers are from the Maja Design Vintage Summer Basics collection. I’ve used Glimmer Mist Chalkboard Mint Chocolate Chip, Glimmer Mist Moonlight, Patina, Frost and Granite for the background. I created the mask with my Gazelle, saving a buck or two. :)sommartider2The white texture is plain white Texture Paste, used together with a Prima mask. The green texure is Shimmerz Texturez Patina, used with a Tim Holtz mask. Here you can really see the difference between ordinary texture paste and texturez.

I’ve used papers from a number of Maja collections. The new Coffee In The Arbour, one of my favourites-Vintage Autumn Basics and the old goodie Crea Diem. I used a Fiskars circular border punch I bought at Michaels a couple of years ago for the circular die cut. I think it turned out quite nice. Big rose and crab by Prima, the other flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. The chipboard has been misted with Glimmer Mist Slate. I’ve used three different Distress Ink’s… Salty Ocean, Walnut Stain and Pumice Stone.sommartider3Here’s another angle where you can really see how the Texturez shines.sommartider4And a final close up…

The scraphouse has airconditioning, so don’t be too surprised if I start posting like crazy… Jenny
