"I love summer time so much and beachy projects, plus the new collection Santorini with this amazing shade of blue, it is perfect for them!! Here I created a canvas using the blue stripe paper : Santorini - 12x12 Sheet - Santorini Moments . I created this with mostly mixed media products and flowers! I added a layer of Texture Paste in White Crackle on my background, then adorned my canvas with different flowers from the Santorini and Saint Tropez collections. I played with Dragonfly Color Bloom spray and Acrylic Paint in Deep Waters for adding color and contrast on my background. " ~ Nathalie

"It's been quite a while since I created a Mini Album. I have so many beachy, summer photos of my tribe I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to document them. I had an old perspex album that I used as my front and back covers. The album became quite thick by the time I had finished it and I tied pieces of material to bind it all together. " ~ Stacey
I used the Santorini collection and played on the blues and mints of the collection. I just loved decorating the front of the album with gorgeous flowers and that cute shutter. Santorini is the perfect collection for those summertime photos.

"I’m so looking forward to the summer vacations and some time on the beach! I thought since I can’t go right now, I might as well create something that will remind me of good times spent there each time I look at it. I created this canvas with the new Santorini collection. This blue striped paper just screams beach and ocean to me." ~ Karine

"For today's theme I made this beachy mixed-media canvas. Blue is my favorite color when it comes to summertime projects, so I used both Impasto paints in Jade and Cobalt, along with Watercolor Confections in Tropicals to to add color and depth to the canvas. I also made use of lots of Art Stones and shells to give texture to the background. " ~ Jaya
