July Mid Month Inspiration

Wow mid month already. That crept up.

Our July challenge can be found here and with a bit of mid month inspiration for you is Helen:

As you may have noticed, adult colouring books have become very popular recently, apparently colouring in is relaxing (something us crafters have known for years!) So with this is mind I took the Design Seed colours for this month and used them to colour in the floral design below. I enjoyed this challenge as the colours are not what I would naturally use with an image like this one.
When it came to the cutting out I left the intricate swirls as I was mounting the image on black, I simply coloured them in black and nobody would know they hadn't been cut out! The black card really makes the colours pop and I will now make a birthday card from this.

July Challenge

Welcome to July

I've gone with this wonderful palette from Design Seeds for July

As always your rules are as follows:

your project must be created during the period 1st July and 30th July 2015

  • your project can only be entered into this challenge and 2 others
  • we must be able to see clearly how you have been inspired by the picture
  • you must enter using the inlinkz button during the period 1st - 30th July 2015
  • you can submit a project using any crafts you like. We are not just about paper crafting
  • you must HAVE FUN and ENJOY your crafting

  • 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!!


    All the blue in the photo really spoke to me as equal parts water and sky, so I created this card.   I felt like that sky would have a hot air balloon show going through it on a perfect day.
