{ Papertrey Ink Blog Hop - July }

The challenge: your twist on anything text integrated into a fun project! Cut it, punch it, tear it, distress it, paint it, ink it, brayer it, stamp it, stitch it, layer it. Use it as a background, border or a focal point. Use several text styles on one project or just focus on a single look. Try a technique layered on top of text like emboss resist or watercoloring. You could even run it through an embossing folder. Most of all, have fun and experiment! Branch out and try something new! We look forward to seeing all of your fabulous creations! I used this newspaper print patterned paper by October Afternoon, Norm's News from Hometown collection, to make the umbrella, flower and the border. I stamped the umbrella on polka dot paper and then the newsprint. I cut each section out and distressed it. The flower is layered with patterned paper and tissue paper, distressed and sprayed with Glimmer Mist. Here is a close up of the flower. Supplies: Papertrey Ink cardstock, patterned paper, buttons and stamps (Scattered Showers). October Afternoon patterned paper, Glimmer Mist, tissue paper, Fiskars border punch.
