Summer Lovin' at Scribbles Designs

 Following the challenge theme of Sizzling Summer over at Scribbles Designs Challenge Blog, I created a set of coasters. To keep them together and organized, I colored up a Scribbles Designs image called Farrah Flamingo. She is one of my favorite characters in the Scribbles Designs Store.  I used apiece of patterned paper from Hobby Lobby (I had to dig deep for this one- my Hobby Lobby store closed several years ago). After using Mod Podge to initially adhere the paper to the paper coasters, I sealed them with Liquitex Gloss Varnish so that they would be water-resistant for those hot summer days when I want to put down my iced tea (or Sangria, Mudslides or Frozen Margaritas,  etc.).
Once I had four coasters, I used a piece of ribbon and hot glued my Scribbles image, colored with Copics and embellished with jewels, onto the ribbon. The coasters fit into the ribbon and I have a pretty way to show off  my coasters, as well as use them.
Even in the summer, I still drink my morning tea, and I can use my new coasters for my mug of caffeine as well!
Remember, the theme at Scribbles Designs is always Anything Goes, but if you choose to  follow that option, you have a chance of getting your project in the Scribblers Hall of Fame. Winners there have a chance to win $10 worth of digis from the Scribbles Store. Just don't forget to link up your project with the main blog!
