June Midway Ike's World Challenge



 ANYTHING GOES/option of 


June is here and hot so why not retreat to the craft room and have some fun?  Then, of course!, drop it at Ike's World Challenges HERE for a chance to win a happy and have us come by your blog for a glass of ice cold tea!  June is known for weddings although why anyone would want to brave these hot temperatures that we have here bewilders me!  (I have also put no wedding months in my daughter's upcoming nuptial planning!)  Excuse my wandering thoughts and back to the challenge!  I love the  Wedding Cake at Ike's Art and have wanted to work with it for ages!  My plans for a paper pieced project were smashed when I realized it was the LAST day to post my make!  Procreate swooped in like the hero and I was able to use a background of marbled paper that I had made and saved months ago!  Then I loosely colored the image in Procreate and yes, I did want the cake green :)  
So here we sit waiting for the next opportunity to visit a wonderful blog and I hope it is yours!

Day 1 of the Bubbly Depths Blog Hop presented by LeighSBDesigns

 Leigh has a brand new blog hop firing off today to celebrate the Bubbly Depths SVG and Cutz Collection!  We will run through the June 30th so check out all the details HERE and find the linky party, too! Make a splash this month and enter your Bubbly Depths SVG Cutz, mermaid, ocean, sea and nautical themed makes for this fun blog hop!

I painted 6 cereal boxes cut down with acrylic paints trying to make each layer a slightly different ocean color!  I spritzed some Distress Oxide Spray and some Lindy's Stamp Gang Moon spray on some watercolor paper for the shark and starfish.  I added some gray watercolor over the shark to give him some umph!  I inked around the circle with mermaid lagoon Distress Ink.  A bit of green glitter glue gave the starfish some shine.  I took the photo against the watercolor paper that was left over and decided I like the way it looked all together!  Happy accidents forever, Bob!
All of the elements are in the Bubbly Depths Bundle including a rectangle tunnel, net, and the shark's pals....another shark, 5 fishes, and a mermaid silhouette!
Thanks to Leigh for another fab blog hop and this gorgeous new collection for our cutting machines!
