"Summer Fun" *Prima Marketing*
How is your week going, so far?
Pretty good, here..trying to enjoy the last of the beautiful weather here, it is definitely fall but still warm enough to enjoy. Soaking it all up before winter hits!
I also know it is fall, because I all of a sudden have that "nesting" feeling...I have this urge to bake, clean, organize..and bake some more :) Aside from scrapbooking, baking is at the top of my list as far as favorite hobbies.
Anyway, at least, I still have lots of summer time photos..and that means I will still be creating summer time layouts - my favorite! I am really enjoying the bright colors right now.
Today on the Prima Blog, there is the monthly "Scraplift" feature. We are given a beautiful layout from one of our team members to lift. This month, it is a stunning page by . You can see her page, along with the other "scraplifts" on the Prima blog today.
Here is what I came up with...
I really adored the design of Olga's beautiful layout, so I stuck with the cascading flowers from corner to corner. I put my own spin on it with bright colors and lots of mixed media background work! The Sunrise Sunset collection made for the perfect back drop for a summery layout.
The masking was created with one of the new Finnabair Elementals Stencils, using Studio 490 Embossing Paste in Metallic Gold. I went over that with Shimmerz Enamelz - Gold Digger. The rainbow of colors in my background is a combination of Shimmerz, and Twinkling H2O's.
This is the perfect opportunity to remind you of this month's challenge at Shimmerz..
be sure to share your "Bright" Shimmerz projects on the Shimmerz Facebook Page.
