Scrapbook & Cards Today February Colour Suite

Click HERE for the American Crafts blog hop.

I was so excited that Summer Fullerton asked me to join her for her February Colour Suite for Scrapbook and Cards Today.  I got to meet Summer and fell in love with her personality.  I loved working with her on the Lily Bee team.  I was always amazed by her designs.  So I am honored she would ask me.

She picked a beautiful suite of colors.

So many ways to interpret the colors and amounts used.  I had this layout in mind to make, and Summer's Colour Suite was perfect.  I got to work right away.  
I cut the scalloped background (it is an old Silhouette file from the Silhouette software, I could not find it, but I know there are similar ones).  After I cut it, I cut "into" it...I didn't want the entire 12x12.  Then cut strips of pattern paper to adhere behind it.  Before adding the scallops to the top, I brushed on watered down gelatos, splattered some Hero Art Daubers, dropped some ink splatters.
I really did have this layout in mind, so I knew the fish photos had to be circles.  Fish are really hard to photograph by the way!  So with the circles, I cut more circles out, and then added the embellishments and title.
I the embellishments light...wanted the color, the photos, and texture to be more noticeable.
Please head over to Scrapbook & Cards Today to play along and be sure to also see what Summer Fullerton has created.  Amazing and so inspiring.  Love her work!
