Laundry Day

Sunday, July 28, 2013

Today is Monday!  That means that there's a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog.  This week's theme is "Ode to Sunshine".  My project was inspired by sweet memories of hanging the laundry out to dry on beautiful sunny days. 

This project was so much fun to create. I began with an old, shallow cigar box and blue acrylic paint.  The clouds were stamped in distress ink and cut into squares.  The canvas dress was painted and stamped.  A paper pinafore was made with Crate Papers DIY 6x6 pad.  And some of my Grandmothers old clothespins were used to hold the clothesline.  Grandma would've liked that. :)

This lady thinks laundry is fun no matter what the weather's like.  No, wait....Is that a glass of wine that she's holding?  Oh...nevermind.  ;)

For more great ideas please pop over to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog and take a look at my fellow design team members. They have created some incredibly inspirational projects. Please sure to play along and link your "Ode to Sunshine" creation for the chance to win a $50 prize from Simon Says Stamp

  15. Michelle! Leave it to a MEGA talented woman like you to make something like laundry (bleck at my house) radiate beauty! This piece is wonderfully emotion-evoking and I stared at it so long that my husband thought I had gone into some sort of computer-induced trance!
