I wanted to make sure to share the two projects I made with Color Cast Designs July releases before the August product hits the shelves next week. The first project I made was a layout documenting a recent trip to Lake Tahoe. I was heavily influenced by the colors of the sand and the blue tones of the water and the sky so I got out my watercolors and just started laying down some paint to mimic the two distinct areas of the photo. Lake Tahoe is my daughters favorite place so I knew when we got there I wanted a photo so I could document her love of the lake. I used the white Right Now piece from the Currently set and mixed in some of the blue sea glass stars from the Twinkling Stars set because the color was just right. After the paint was dry I taped my photo right on top with a plain piece of masking tape.
I used the Peerless Watercolor Papers in Warm Sepia and Robin Eggs Blue for the background. The journaling was typed on vellum and adhered with my tiny attacher.
I love the sea glass accent against the blue.
My second project was a Project Life® spread for July 3rd and 4th. I loved the new items Jessica made for the fourth so I used the 4th of July set and the Stars, No Stripes set and I also added the 'this moment' circle is from the Currently Set to complete this half spread. The flag card I used is from Studio Calico's July 2014 addon, the diagonal text card is from this years July 2015 addon. I sprinkled in some gold and silver glitter stars along with a blue star from Jessica's store. The gold glitter Lucky is from the Lucky Me set that is sold out.
I just loved the interchangeable circles and stars and had fun playing with different combos to dress up my cards.
