Today marks the summer soltice in the northern hemisphere.
Inspired by the scenes Kristi created here using the PTI's Garden Variet,. I used her card layout with a tag and created my own little summer scene.
I knew I wanted to use this precious tiny banner on the picket fence. Then I thought of the bird house and bird to finish my scene.
Thankfully the picket fence and tag are dies because the banner, bird house, and bird requred hand cutting. I used an acrylic paint and small stiff stenciling brush to paint the fence and kraft impressed matt. I used a scalloped die and blue ink to created the mottled sky, and I colored the bird house and banner with Copics.
What are your plans for this longest day of the year?
