Sneaks Day 2: In Nature!

Welcome to Day Two of Flourishes June Releases!  We're thrilled to show off more nature-inspired offerings for you today. One of the things that makes summer so special are those tranquil moments spent in the outdoors.  Think of those peaceful places of solitude away from the hustle and bustle of daily life! In honor of those special places, we bring you...........
  InNatureGraphic 

You can feel the solitude in this beautiful and earthy set penned by Lauren Pope. Whether it's catching the great outdoors by canoe, or sitting by the lake front cabin, this set delivers a serene dose of nature. The images are great for nature lovers or even for the men in your life!

On to my creation!

I chose the cabin in the woods image for my creation and I knew I would have a blast adding a splash of color. I stamped using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and then grabbed my Copic markers to bring this image to life! (See my supply list below for a list of what colors I used!) The layout is really simple but is one that I would love for any of the men in my life. I used two strips of green patterned paper, matted it on brown decorative paper, added some twine, a button and the sentiment in the lower corner. Don't forget the paper piercing!

Here's a close up! I did, for some of my coloring stipple my color to make it look more free flowing.....


And that, my friends, is it! I have to tell you - we have some beautiful creations to show you with the In Nature set, so take a trip on over to visit the Design Team today to see them, and don’t forget about today’s…
