Hello Stampers! Today's project is for Global Design Project #151 theme challenge.
This project was a real joy for me to make! I made this for my brother who recently had a birthday and just moved into a new apartment. He wanted something to hang on his wall and gave me a few hints on what he likes: mermaids, wood, seaside, teal, twine, and copper. I tried to incorporate all those things and more. When I showed him some examples of samplers on Pinterest he told me he liked the ones that didn't have the squares all the same size. I'm so happy with the end result and so was he! He was beyond excited to receive this as a gift and I was beyond happy to create it for him! Win/win!
We framed it with a scrapbook page frame that was purchased from Amazon (not pictured).
The background paper is a 12"x 12" sheet of Springtime Foils DSP that I sponged with Coastal Cabana ink. The Sampler Square is an 8"x 8" piece of Early Espresso. Each bigger panel mat (Bermuda Bay) is 5" x 21/2" and the stamped panel is 4 3/4" x 2 1/4". Each smaller square mat measures 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" and the stamped panel is 2 1/4" x 2 1/4".
