I have a "twofer" for you today, as when I was creating my OCEAN background, I didn't like what I came up with at first. After completing another that I liked, the rejected one kept staring at me...so I worked with it and actually like what I came up with! But first one first:
As a young girl we took a family vacation for 2-3 weeks every Summer and visited a lot of the U.S. as my dad was a big history buff...especially going out east as he really loved anything to do with the Civil War. To keep my brothers and I happy, he always included trips to the ocean and I remember those as magical times. Hence, I went with a bit of a whimsical sentiment on my card that started out as a oops...
You may be wondering where the oops is...before I added anything, I didn't like the darker blue in the center of the background. I don't know why...I just didn't! But anyway, after I added the die cut cattails and grasses and seagulls (both AliExpress) and added a die cut circle frame, it wasn't so bad. And then after adding the sentiment from MFT's Seaside Seagulls, I liked it even more! Guess the moral of the story here is DON'T THROW ANYTHING AWAY!!
You will be blown away by what the rest of the DT has to inspire you with, so check it all out right HERE, and then play along with us. Make sure you also check out our Guest Designer Robyn this month...she is amazing!! This challenge is open until the 24th.
