Hero Arts: You're freaking awesome





Aloha!  So, if you follow me on FB or IG you may have noticed that I've been on vaca for the past week.  We had a glorious time in Maui.   My first crafting project back from vaca had to be hawaiian influenced:


I managed to use 4 different Hero Arts sets:

Color Layering Pineapple
Tropical Foliage Bold Prints
Wave Pattern Background
Hello Gorgeous

Let's start at the bottom and work our way up.  I started with a Foliage panel that has the Tropical Foliage Bold Prints stamped with Lime Green.  I inked up the edges too.  I layered a Sunshine panel that has been stamped with the Wave Pattern Background in Butter Bar.  

I used the Circle Infinity Dies so I had a space to stamp the sentiment from the Hello Gorgeous set in Intense Black.  I always seem to fall back on pink pineapples, and hello?  Why wouldn't I?  Love the Color Layering Pineapple set.  The inks for the pineapple:

Soft Pink  •  Cotton Candy  •  Bubble Gum


The pineapple greenery consists of:

Lime Green  •  Fresh Lawn  •  Green Hills

The bloom:

Butter Bar  •  Cotton Candy  •  Intense Black

I topped it off with twine, washi and enamel dots from my stash.

Thought I'd share the pics on my blog.  I use this as a diary, not just for my design work.  Darin took this gorgeous sunset photo, absolutely gorgeous eh?


LOL...Darin took this one of me.  I always look so excited when I have food.  This was Shave Ice with Mochi (the white stuff on top) and the bottom has Azuki Beans....a japanese delicacy...personally I could live off of the stuff.  If you're ever on Maui, make sure you check out Ululani's!
