August 2018 - Sun, Sea and Sand

Welcome everyone to our August Challenge 
Our theme this month is Sun, sea and sand (make a summer or holiday themed project) chosen by the lovely Corrie

Hi everyone, 
I'd like to welcome you to the new Challenge which is hosted by me ! Yay! I have chosen the theme of Sun, Sand and Sea and I'd like you to make a holiday and/or summer themed project. 

I have made an art journal:

If you would like to see how I made this then please hop over to my YouTube Channel where you can see me do it ! 

I hope you will join me this month. I look forward to seeing all you projects ! 
I will be back soon with my second inspiration piece !

Good morning and welcome to August. The holiday season is in full swing, and many of us are chasing (or avoiding) the sunshine. My lovely lady is definitely beach ready.

Hands up who looks looks like this in their beachwear - no me neither. There are more details here on my blog, and I'll be back later on in the month with the other side of my giant tag. Have a fun month, and thanks very much for looking x

Hello there! I've been drawn to the sea for this challenge - I've made a hanger using board and paint, stamps and lolly sticks and string! Head over to my blog here for details. Hugs rachel xx

I tried to figure out how to build up a scene where there are sun, sea and sand at the same time. 
This underwater scene is one version.
On my blog, you can find the supply list and the tutorial.
Happy August everyone!!!

Good morning!! 
Teresa here with a seaside themed mini shrine, full of happy memories of family holidays.

You can find out how I created it on my blog along with more detail photos. I can't wait to see what everybody creates for our Sun, Sea and Sand Challenge!

Welcome to sunny August and it looks like this year the weather is behaving and we are being treated to some real seaside weather. For my inspiration piece for this month's challenge I have made a photo holiday journal after our recent holiday in Majorca.
This is the front cover, you can find the back cover, and a full step by step of how I created my journal covers over on my blog here. There are also some sunny holiday photos too. I would love for you to pop on over...remember those sun glasses!
Bye for now,
What a perfect theme for this August, especially with such an extraordinary
hot and DRY British weather! A beach holiday is in order, methinks...

 This month, I picked up Tim Holtz simple-but-oh-so-brilliant new product and experimented for your pleasure... Do come over to my blog for the low down on Alcohol Lift Ink.

August is the month of long holidays (at least for me 😀).
So the challenge theme this month is perfect!
I made a summer birthday card.

If you want to see, how I made this, you can watch the process video on my YouTube channel.

Of course you can also hop to my blog for more information.
Now I hope you´ll use your spare time and join the challenge!
Have wonderful holidays!
