Blitsy Summer Trends Blog Hop!

**This post contains affiliate links when possible at no cost to you. As a part of the Blitsy Creative Team, I receive product for use in my projects. The great thing is I'm able to choose what I use so all the opinions remain my own and as always I only share what I personally love to use!!**


Hi Everyone! Welcome to the Blitsy Summer Trends Blog Hop! You should have arrived from the Blitsy Blog, if not, be sure to head there right now and get ALL the details on what you need to do to enter to win a $50 Blitsy Shopping Spree. You are going to want to collect all the secret words from each Blitsy Creative Team Member and if you haven't guessed my word by the end of the blog post, I'll reveal it then for ya!


For this fun blog hop, Blitsy sent each member of the creative team a mystery box of fun products that fit the theme of summer trends. I had a fun time unboxing my video LIVE on Facebook so I would love it if you went over and joined my page so you won't miss any future live videos. You can even watch the replay if you want. In my box, it was pretty clear from the beginning that my theme had to do with the awesome pineapple trend this summer. You can find them on clothing, home décor, art and even on the names of craft products! The products I received where a fun Echo Park Pineapple 6x6 stencil, Ranger Crushed Pineapple Stickles, Little B Pineapple stickers, Lindy's Stamp Gang Flat Fabio Pineapple Paradise Spray. I couldn't wait to create a mixed media project and of course, I was going all out with the Pineapple theme. I really enjoyed hand lettering this quote that one of my Facebook followers suggested! I used a sharpie brush pen for the first time to create this look and I love the look of different hand lettering to create a shape which is what I did for the arrow.


I want to say right now, I filmed my entire process for you like I usually do BUT hit a huge snag with my editing software and I just couldn't get it worked out before the blog hop. It breaks my heart that I don't have the entire process for you. I'm honestly at my wits end and if you have any suggestions on programs to use other than iMovie, I am all ears.


With that said, I started by putting gesso on my art journal page and then using the Echo Park Stencil with the Lindy's Stamp Gang spray created a patterned background. I had never used a Lindy's Stamp Gang spray and I'm loving the vibrancy and color of it. I was curious to see if it was permanent which is a huge factor in any spray I use for my mixed media art which is why I used it as a background layer. In my experience with it on this page, it is not permanent when layering over it with other wet mediums but that didn't really bother me so much but it is something to keep in mind as I use it in the future. It definitely won't stop me from adding more colors though because the application, coverage and pigmentation is spot on!


This Little B gold pineapple sticker is the cutest! Such a fun added detail that I think would make a great card embellishment, too. I would love to create a card using this hand lettered look as well with that cute detail and the stenciled background. So many great ways to use these fun pineapple themed products!


I am not usually one for drawing anything in my mixed media (hello, stencils to the rescue) but thought I would push myself a little this once. A pineapple is just truly an oval with some details and that crown of leaves shooting out of the top...how hard can it be?! I cut out some text paper into my shape by hand and then using matte gel medium attached it to my page. I added some color using my NeoColor II crayons and Inktense pencils then created the outline with my Stabilo All Purpose pencil. Of course, this is where the stickles also come in to play. I added a thin layer around one side to create a bit of highlight and texture spreading it out with my finger.


Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this mixed media page. Be sure to check out the Blitsy Summer Trends Sale to find these and all the products the creative team is showcasing today for your next project! By the way, have you guessed my secret word yet?! It's PINEAPPLE!! Yep. How creative. haha 

Now you are off to see what fellow creative team member, Chrissie, has created with her fun Summer Trends mystery box! I can't wait.
