The goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project and link up! #festivefridaychallenge  At Festive Friday, you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion. I hope you’ll make a card, scrapbook page or 3-D project and join us. You don’t need a blog to enter Festive Friday. Check out this link on how you can play along with this challenge.  If you want help entering, please email me at [email protected] and I’d be happy to help you!  Again, your entry doesn’t have to have anything to do with World Art Day. This was a challenge for me because I kept thinking of a picture that was sent to me from my son.  He is a true artist and he enables his kids in all art forms.  It was this picture that my 3 year old grandson,Riley,  did that inspired my card.  In the video I said that I was going to use my other grandsons painting but I then realized that it was a video of his that I had.

Here is his work of art. IMG_6302 2

Amazing right? Lol

When I saw the inspo list, the one thing that jumped out at me was the easel. I then remembered the easel cards that we made years ago.  I had a lot of fun making this card.  Here is my card using the Inspo List above - Easel, Frame and Watercolor Paper. The video shows an interesting way to use your stamps and Watercolor Paper. I will be sure to include the supplies below. 

Oceanfront SU 1

I used the Timber 3D embossing Folder to make the easel.  Make sure you see the video to see how I did that as well.

The measurements for the card are:

Pool Party:  4 1/4" x 11" scored at 5 1/2"

Bermuda Bay: 3" x 4 3/8"

Fluid 100 Water Color paper: 2 1/2" x 4"

Basic White: 1/2" x 3"

Now make sure that you check out the video to see how to make the wood grained easel.
