I have to admit that summer is probably my least favorite of the seasons. I am not a fan of heat and humidity...something we have seen a lot of this summer in the Sandhills of North Carolina. For me, the rich blues and greens are the most refreshing colors that cool the hot summer sun. I would like to share a tag I made for my daughter during exam week.
She, unlike me, loves the summer and the heat and aspires to work in the marine biology field. The background was made with Mermaid Lagoon and Broken China Distress Ink and I sprinkled water to add some sea like bubbles in my ocean. The turtle is die cut from green cardstock and his shell is patterned using Mowed Lawn Distress Ink and then crackled with Rock Candy Crackle paint. The sentiment is a Dyan Reaveley's Dylusions stamp and fit the occasion perfectly! I colored some cheesecloth and used some blue string and charms from my stash to make the bottom border. I tied Paper String Stripes in green and blue in a bow to finish the tag.
