Colors of Summer

Today I am up on the Paper Issues blog sharing my lift of this Sunday's Scraplift challenge. This week we are lifting the inspirational layout by Jen McMurtrey.  I love the new collections from Pinkfresh Studio and used Be You and Let your Heart Decide for this design.

Here is Jen's beautiful original design using Elle's Studio Noteworthy collection:

I adore this design's use of color blocking
 and I had fun time sorting through my Pinkfresh collections 
in search of embellishments that matched these color families.

The use of foam pop dots adds to the height variety in the quadrant of photos. 
  I lifted up two of them to vary it and create shadows along with
 the use of puffy stickers and enamel shapes which add shine and texture!

The metallic alpha add the perfect amount of shine. I adore the many colors of the Pinkfresh mini alphas that are carrried in the PI store.

I used the packaging technique (small pieces of plastic packaging with watercolors added) dab on the background paper to get the splotchy, spotty look of the watercolors to coordinate with the colors.  For some of the colors, I mixed multiple colors from the watercolor palette to get the exact match.

The golden color paper and the bright green were both cut from the Let Your Heart Decide collection Escapade paper and it is a favorite as it is ombré!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.
