Do I Scream Summer?

Hi Scrappy Friends! Do you ever come across images (digi, stamp or cricut cut) that you like but you feel as if you cant use them because they are seasonal? I do. Do you think it's fair to wait over half a year to be able to use them? I don't. So because of that I like to alter my images to give them new life (whenever I can).

Take this image for example: this is Beachy Tia, a summer image from Some Odd Girl. I decided to omit her body (which is dressed in a bathing suit) and chop off one of her arms. It isn't a drastic change but it's something. So what do you think? Does she still scream Summer? Because in my head, i still see the bathing suit. Lol!

I used the Ink Pink Sketch #8. Ill also be playing with: SOG - B/W and Color. Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes. Thanks for stopping by :)

Other Materials Used: Prismacolor Pencils. DCWV Cardstock and DP. Prima Flowers. Peapod Twine, The Twinery.


Speaking of Some Odd Girl, Kristy (Owner of SOG) is celebrating her 30th Bday all month long with Awesome Tutorials and Giveaways. There is still time to hop on over to wish Kristy a very Happy Birthday and to link up for a chance to win some goodies.
