Eileen Hull's Art With Heart Challenge: Summer Fun!

The sun is shining and I'm having Summer Fun with Sizzix!
As you know, each month I participate in the Art With Heart Challenge with Eileen Hull. This month, the theme is "Summer Fun". The Inspiration Team has been busy creating Summer fun with Eileen Hull's Sizzix line of dies and folders. I've been inspired by the beautiful patio planters that have been appearing in my neighborhood. I'm not much of a gardener, but that hasn't stopped me. Here is what I created...
Yes...It's a REAL, live succulent! This wee little pot would make a darling party favor, but I am going to put mine on my desk to brighten up my office. I created my garden planter with the  Sizzix 3-D Scoreboards Die Candy Cup and the new Sizzix Thinlets Flower Layers and Stem Die Set.

The beautiful crackle effect was created with the DecoArt Media Crackle Glaze and Paint

The DecoArt Antiquing Cream is my all-time favorite!

Please join our "Summer Fun" and take the Art with Heart Challenge!
We want this to be a place for everyone to create, inspire and share.  We would love to see what you can do with Eileen Hull’s fabulous products but this is not a requirement.  Use what ever products your artful “heart” desires.  Art is for everyone so come along and share your Art with Heart!

We want you all to create freely there are no rules here, just a few simple guidelines…

1.Create a new project following the Art with Heart Challenge Theme (however you interpret the theme) OR if you have created something that fits the theme previously create a new post with a photo and link to the original post.
 2.Include a link to the current Art with Heart Challenge in your post so others can play along too!
3.When linking up your project please include a direct link to your post.
4.You are not required to use Eileen Hull Products in your projects.  However, those who do use Eileen Hull products will be given two entries into the prize draw.

I've had a lot of fun working with these dies. :) I hope that you've found my latest projects inspiring and will join us for some Summer Fun!
