Making a Splash at Paper Issues

Happy Monday! There's a new theme over at Paper Issues, Make a Splash! You can create anything splash-related, just be sure to include paper in your project!! For my contibution, I created a piece of wall-art that is hanging in my bathroom to welcome summer:

I first painted a canvas with a few shades of rust and brown; layered a roughed-up sheet of chocolate cardstock and a sweet photo of my kiddos splashing in the waves. I then pulled out my stash of Magnetic Poetry, and added the words, "beautiful with the promise of sun, water and play" (just love how those little boxes of words can make me feel all poetically taletend!!). Clipped it all onto a fabulous jumbo clipboard painted with chakboard paint, and wrote "hello summer"!

Now it's your turn! Hop on over to Paper Issues and link up your splashy projects- as many as you want, old or new, and maybe you'll be featured in an upcoming post! =) T
