SWAT Drill #37 - Watermelon Crawl

Our first drill for August over at SWAT is based on a song, Watermelon Crawl.

You can take your inspiration from any part of the song or the title, etc.  I went with the watermelon, of course, and I thought the song was about celebrating.

I did my very first free hand watercolor, not too shabby...
I used MME Miss Caroline and Fancy Pants Summer Soul paper for my card base.  The watermelon seeds are tiny chipboard raindrops for the new rainy day confetti over at UWS.  May Arts chevron twill, VLVS! sentiment (celebrate) and UWS hummingbird chip.  I used Distress Ink-Walnut Stain on the paper edges.

Don't those tiny drops make perfect seeds??!

If you are inspired to create by this song make sure you get linked up by the end of the month for you chance to win a scrappy prize!  Can't wait to see what you create!!


  1. I love your free hand watermelon! The rain drops are just perfect for seeds!

  2. This looks so yummy! I'd even eat the seeds!
