Anyway to put myself in a summery mood, I used the gorgeous Surfing digi from Alicia Bel to join in with their challenge #9 Anything Goes with the option of summer holiday. I actually got this stamp as part of my winning prize from the previous challenge and just had to use her!
I found a new way to use Dutch Doobadoo's structure paste today. I used the clouds stencil and filled in random clouds for the sky and couldn't be bothered to wait for it to dry in between the placements of the clouds, so heated it up with my heat gun. It made the paste go all bubbly and dried it really quickly. Then when the bubbles went down, it gave the clouds some real fluffy like texture. Love it when I find out new things like this by accident!
