Summer Fun - Mixed Media & Watercolour Layout ~ Creative Embellishments August Challenge

Happy August! I hope you're enjoying a fantastic summer! It is the first of the month, which means a new challenge is up on the Creative Embellishments Blog! Here is this month's inspiration picture - and the challenge twist for August is to use hashtag(s) on your project!
The crazy-fun picture for this month's challenge inspired me to create a FUN layout using the CE Chipboard hashtags #SUMMER and #FUN from the Social Hashtags set. I painted the title with three shades of Prima Metallique paints (Deep Waters, Rich Turquoise and Mermaid Teal) to create an Ombré effect. For an extra fun touch, I added one of the Wood Veneer Geek Chic Glasses, which I painted with Prima Metallique Paint in Steampunk Copper.
I created lots of texture on the layout using Prima Mediums - including White Sand Texture Paste, Modelling Paste and 3 sizes of Art Stones; then, I coloured the scene using ColourArte Twinkling H2O Watercolours. Here are some close-ups and angles so you can see all the texture.

I hope you like my interpretation of this month's challenge - I can't wait to see what you create! Remember to follow the Rules for the Challenge so that you're eligible to win!
