WOYWW – Summer Dreams Collage Card

Summer Dreams - Collage Card

Summer Dreams Collage Card

Happy WOYWW to you, dear friends! What’s on your work desk this week?

I am celebrating the arrival of summer with the creation of this inspirational card – designed in neutral colors and elements that make it particularly suitable for the men in your life – with soft, whispery tears that emulate the waves of the sea!

I love creating collages. Not only do they set one’s creative spirit free, but they are perfect for using up the odds and ends you find lying around your craft room!

  • Incorporate leftover paper scraps into your design!
  • Look for images, die cuts, sentiments, and other odds and ends to add visual interest!
  • Don’t forget the embellishments! Use up remaining ribbons, fibers, brads and other goodies!

    Thanks for sharing over at Pause, Dream, Enjoy for our Beach Theme. I love the colors in this card since it’s great for the theme plus I often have a hard time sticking to neutrals and also making masculine cards which this one is great for both. I also am a huge fan of the tearing technique that you used.. it looks so gorgeous!!

  32. great looking card Joy! I thought I commented on it but see I am dreaming. Have a great week. Vickie #19

  33. Lovely colours on the card – and, as you say, a great way to use up a few more pieces of leftovers. Refuse to call them scrap – they are simply pieces awaiting use!
    Have a good week.

  34. Mary Anne says:

    I am reminded of something I saw in a quilting mag or on a blog at some point, where someone made an actual lap quilt from the scraps in the bins and under the tables at a quilting retreat. We crafters seem like pack rats, up cyclers, cheapskates…depends on the spin you put on it, but it all means the same thing. Making something from nothing gives us an unreasonable amount of joy…. 🙂

    Happy WOYWW!
