WMS Day 2 Sneak Peek - North Shore

Welcome back for Day 2 of the sneak peeks for the Waltzingmouse July 1 release!   Didn't you just love all the sweet fairy princess inspiration yesterday?!! (if you missed it scroll down to my post below!)  Thank you so much for all your lovely comments!

Well - today we're going to the beach with another mini stamp set called North Shore.  Vacations are all about creating memories -  so I decorated a 3 1/2" x 4 1/2" Mini Chipboard notebook where I could write notes of my summer adventures and place a picture or two (or 20!)!

I stamped this wonderful surfer image in Bamboo Leaves ink and cut it with an oval Nestability.  Then I stamped it in Bahama Blue on a scrap and cut out the surfer and summer part of the sentiment.  I stamped the NORTH SHORE in Black and the flowers in Rose Bud cutting out and layering the pieces over the original green stamping.  The surfer and flowers are popped up with foam tape.

Then I die cut the waves, stamped the sentiment and punched it with my word window punch adhering them along the bottom as you see.  Here's a side view so you can see the popped up pieces.
I added ribbons tied in double knots along some of the 0 wires -  they remind me of seagulls flying over the ocean waves!
Inside I stamped some images from the set you will see here tomorrow on Day 3 of the Sneak Peeks!
Once again -  we are off to see what the rest of the Design Team has to inspire us with this fun summer surf mini set!   See you tomorrow for Day #3!

This is a great idea and so effective with the way you've used different Memento inks to add colour. I love it!

Super fun, Julia! What a great effect you have created by coloring all the elements differently - fun paper piecing! The notebook is a great idea, too!

I love coming to your blog, Julia, because I know that I'm always going to find something creative and unique. Just like this project...what a great idea and a splendid way to take note of the fun things that happen over your summer. Love all the POP on your image and those tropical colors. Awesome job.

Gnarly, dude! LOL. I've been wanting to say that ever since I saw the sneak peek on Claire's blog. But really, your color scheme is gorgeous. And the addition of the waves is very cool. Love it!
