    Here is how our design team were inspired by the colours and the picture

    I simply adore the colour choice for this months inspiration. I had this beautiful photograph of Mel (who is a friends daughter) that I  knew would be the perfect fit. I used paint, stamps, Copics, embossed card, Prima and KaiserCraft embellishments to complete this 12" x 12" scrapbook layout.



    Ahhh summer colors for this challenge ! Summer finally have start  here (in the Netherlands) with some crazy temperatures, we even have a heatwave this week. On the photo we had a hot summer day a few years ago and had some pool fun in the backyard!



    I, too, love the colours and image ... not a beach photo but a summer photo on my beloved island of Naxos!!! I hope my layout inspires you to create something!!

    Here are our design team projects:

    I used ribbon, paint and yellow from the above list to create this tag. I normally colour stamps using Copics but as these were not n the list I decided to use paint. I was surprised that it turned out as well as it did as paint for me normally involves lots of paint and mess! The tag and stamps are all from PaperArtsy and in case you were wondering I do not have shares in PaperArtsy but I am starting to think that maybe I should!

    The recipe I used for my page is; yellow, paint, white space and ribbon. The yellow was so bright, but so was the seahorse at the aquarium, lol. I always love to work with bright colors, they are my favorite. Let's see what recipe you will choose :-)

     Recipes challenges are so much fun! I've used white space, yellow, paint and a bit of fluff!



    I knew instantly that I wanted to do a paint printing background for this card.  I also decided pretty quickly to finish my recipe with a banner and ribbon.




    I created a Flora Art Tag and used Yellow, Ribbon and Paint from Kerry's list. I wanted the color yellow to be the most prominent feature in this project so all the elements I used have various shades of this color.
