Welcome to Whimsical Twist’s first challenge! We thought it would be a lot of fun to also have a Blog Hop to celebrate our first challenge! How does that sound?
During the Hop you will be visiting blogs from several of our fabulous design team members. You will find so much inspiration on the way, that your head might explode!
The hop will start at the Whimsical Twist blog and end at Lisa Wilkinson’s blog. If you are just joining in, be sure to go to the Whimsical Twist blog to start. If you get lost along the way, just look at the list below to get you hopping in the right direction.
And you can’t have a Blog Hop without giveaways and this one is no different! In order to be entered into the giveaways, you will need to be sure you leave a comment on each blog on the hop. Whimsical Twist will also be giving away a $15 gift certificate to the shop to one random hopper! We will be announcing the winners of our giveaways on August 12th, so be sure to watch for the announcements.
Without further ado, let’s get this celebration started!
Our first challenge is inspired by summer! The photo below is our inspiration / mood board
I knew the perfect photos I wanted to work with for this challenge. These are some water park photos I came across a few days ago with my boys, 4 years ago. It’s hard to believe these boys are going to be in 8th grade and a freshman in high school in just a couple of weeks!
I used papers from Elle’s Studio and Simple Stories for this layout. I added in some different washi tapes for the border on the side of the photos to tuck into.
All of the sticker letters and accent stickers are from Simple Stories as well. I added some Liquid Glass from CTMH for the letters spelling WATER to give it that wet look.
I misted the top left corner with Mister Huey’s in the color Desert over a mask and then I accented with some of the beautiful sequins you can find in the Whimsical Twist Shop. I also used a mask and some ink to create a bubble confetti background on the bottom using CTMH Lagoon ink and then layered with some of the same beautiful sequins from the shop. The two colors I used are Pineapple and Caribbean. I adore these beautiful sequins so much, I think I may even use them more than my enamel dots! To adhere the Sequins I used the same Liquid Glass that I used on the title letters.
Now for something a little fun! As I said before, you will see giveaways along your hop today. I am giving away a set of project life cards that I made especially for our giveaway! Below is a little peek at some of the cards included. I am also including a little bag of sequins, a sample of all the colors offered in the Whimsical Twist shop! All contained in this little 4×6 case perfect to use as a project life on the go or journaling kit for your purse! Make sure you comment on each of the blogs today in order for a chance to win!
