Hello, G45ers!

 Have you joined this month's #G45MixandMatch – April Challenge yet?  If you are looking for some inspiration, Brand Ambassador, Kasia Bogatko has got you covered, with a stellar beach themed Wall Hanging.  Kasia mixed and matched our Sun Kissed and By the Sea – Deluxe Collector’s Edition paper collections together to create this home decor masterpiece.  


Beach Wall Hanging – #G45MixandMatch

By Kasia Bogatko



Today I have a project for our April challenge – Mix & Match. I love the marine atmosphere so I chose two collections in this type – By the Sea and Sun Kissed. These collections match not only thematically but also in color. I love both, and the "By the Sea" collection in Deluxe Collector's Edition is a real treasure.



I have prepared a marine banner for you, completely without any media or complicated products or techniques. I only splashed it in white, you can easily do it with white ink or diluted paint.



To make the project rich, cut out many elements from paper. Use stickers, die-cuts, pieces of string and gauze. Stick everything with foam tape or cardboard, then the work will have depth, it will be more interesting. I also distressed the edges of each element so that they do not melt with the background.



The last accent are the white pebbles that. Is important to choose glue, that will be transparent when dry. Then it will look more natural and aesthetic.


Reach for your favorite collections and take part in our challenge. Try to use the less obvious connections. And if you were inspired by my project – act! I have a movie for you that will help you in this.” ~Kasia
