Arrow IC503 - Beach House {07-25-15}

I hope that you are enjoying the summer weather as much as I am. One of my favorite places to go in the Pacific Northwest during this time of year is to Canon Beach in Oregon. It has miles of beautiful beach and rockies that help to clear the mind of worries, and set the scene for relaxation. Could you imagine living on the beach, and being able to enjoy that feeling at any time, all year long!?

THIS WEEKS' CHALLENGE SITE: Join me this week as we take a dreamy journey to life lived on the beach, and explore the wealth of inspiration there from the Beach House Pinterest Board by mokrissy II. My big tip to you for this challenge site is to look deeply into the images; steal a painting from the wall, or a soap dish off the sick, or even just a beautiful bird in the sky, for your inspiration! Locate something within the images that clears your mind for relaxation, and allow it to inspire you to create something uniquely beautiful of your very own, or to be a gift for someone who could use more peaceful thoughts!

EXTRA CREDIT CHALLENGE: Here's an optional side challenge for this week: Get out of the house, and go visit a REAL beach sometime this week (or a lake if you're inland), and take a picture of something there that inspires you using your phone or camera. Make a card (or Scrapbook page) from that REAL outdoors inspiration, and then post your inspired project on SCS with the keywords "IC503-RealityShow" (please don't include any spaces in the keywords). If you want to share your personal photo - share it on this forum below please. I think you'll have as much fun as I did finding inspiration in the beautiful things outside!

My CAS Embossed Card #1
My CAS Embossed Card #2
My Reality Show Card on Friday Harbor FYI: My reality show photo is the first of the attachments below. It was taken on San Juan Islands Friday Harbor.

If you are unfamiliar with how to grab the hyperlinks from a Pinterest Board, here is a helpful video:




Please remember that all inspiration links for the primary challenge should only be inspired by images from the Beach House Pinterest Board
.


Use the keyword: IC503 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

IC503 Gallery

IC503-RealityShow Gallery

For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many images to choose from, I've uploaded 10 of my favorites. So just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration. Click on the images below to see them bigger and to get their links on SCS. Don't forget to let us know which photo served as your inspiration piece please.

How to Play ~ View the attached images. You may be inspired to recreate the pieces ~ but that isn't necessary ... get your inspiration from the colors, layout, style or 'theme'. Just enjoy wherever your inspired creative journey takes you. Remember, if you are inspired by the creation of another artist, please do not use print-outs of the art in your creation or directly copy their work. Make the inspiration piece your own. Don't worry ~ no card is 'wrong' and there is no time limit for uploading your card for the challenge. There are no rules, so let your creative juices run wild ~ be *inspired* and go get stamping!

Don't forget about No Upload Sunday - Let's give the gallery moderators a day off and not upload on Sunday (unless, of course, you are a Fan Club member - yet another reason to spend a little money on your favorite site). Also, remember to link to your SCS gallery on this thread. Thank you for joining me on this inspiration journey.

I had a hard time making a card this morning - I do not know why! This is my third try and I am sticking with it. Although I did not find a picture of a lighthouse, this was the closet I had to work with this morning for a beach theme.

Audrie this was a fabulous website today!

Smile IC503 Smile Bag

Loved this board, Audrie! I was inspired by the St. John's pillows and went with a gift bag project, with a coffee sleeve stamped decoration and some festive ties. Here's Smile Bag

Default IC503 Just For You

Was inspired by the beach glass with its soft colors. I used a cute flower stamp, and added the matching sentiment. Did a sponged sky, and added rough twine, light blue fabric, and a white button for embellies. Here's Just For You

I was too literal because I thought I was to use the photos! But, I had an enjoyable time taking a ride over to the beach anyway.

I made a card from the site. When I saw the coral rug I instantly wanted to make it into a background. So here is my card: Seahorse
