We’re so ready for summer sun, lazy days on the beach, and wearing sandals!  Our JUNE Color Challenge was inspired by the casual, easy colors of the summer season. Are you ready to catch some rays?!

“Beach Cottage Tote” by Chana Malkah Harris


My friend, Nicole, is moving to Tybee Island, Georgia.  Her move to a new home inspired me to design this Beach House Toolbox.  I created the brick facade by painting on a thin layer of gesso and using the direct to surface technique to apply ColorBox™”Mist” Archival Ink. . The window shades were made from non-woven cloth that I tinted with ColorBox® “Seaglass” Pigment Ink.   I wanted texture in my window shade design so I crimped fabric and  applied a light coat of the Crafter’s Desert Sand Ink to the raised areas.

BeachHouseFloor_CMHarrisAn Artsy Beach House needs a snazzy floor. A piece of heavyweight chipboard covered with  gesso and stenciled with the ColorBox™ Art Screen Starpoint© to apply the pattern.was the perfect solution. The floor panel is covered with transparent shelf lining to resist spills and splatters.

“Teacher Thank-You Gift” by Rose Powell

Hi All! It’s almost time for us to bid adieu to the teachers and thank them for tolerating teaching our children for the entire school year. For the June Color Challenge, I created a Layered Ink Stenciled Gift Tag to attach to our end of the year teacher gift.
