This is a wonderful stamp set from Stampin Up called Gorgeous Grunge. I don't sell Stampin Up but I saw my friend show this in her haul video and I knew that I would use it. It is nice to be able to create that "misted" look using my inks versus a spray.
This is also a nice set if you do art journaling/collages.
This was a fun layout to create! Thank you for looking. See you on the next post.

My vacation mini album is open on my desk and waiting for me to work on it!
I filmed a What's In Progress video over the weekend showing you what I am working on for the summer. Lots of catch up on Project Life and mini albums.

I made a fun summer vignette in my kitchen to display some vacation pictures.
I wanted to add some color to my kitchen counter for summer. I love red and aqua so that is what I chose to work with.
The first thing I did was painted a plain wooden frame aqua so that I could add some fun vacation pictures to it.
The plain wooden frame came from Hobby Lobby. I used Indian Turquoise paint and then added some screws and wire to the back of the frame so I could add pictures.
I used small clothes pins and some patterned paper to embellish the pictures.
I made these fun pinwheels and glued them onto a skewer. I placed them in a blue tinted mason jar from World Market. I added some curled scrapbook paper to help hold the skewers in the jar.
The paper collection that I used for the frame and pinwheels is called I Heart Summer by Simple Stories.
I bought this red clock from a Cracker Barrel while we were on vacation in Georgia.
I added some faux candles to the top. They are on a timer and come on in the evening. It looks very pretty in my kitchen.
This was a fun and easy project. I love looking at our vacation pictures while working in the kitchen.
Thank you for looking!
See you on the next project.
