Since anything goes for this week's Inspirational #128, hosted by Lynda, for Red Rubber Inspirationals, I decided to scrap this photo of Fanny Bridge, in Tahoe City, for a few other challenges as well.
I was instantly drawn to these beautiful, summer, colors used for the July Design Seeds Challenge @ Scrapbook.com!
I got messy with some mixed media for category 1, for the July Four Categories Challenge @ Scrapbook.com. I started by smearing gesso on the background, creating little waves with a plastic fork, and then spraying over it with some Glimmer Mists, (Bahama Blue and Bubble Light Green) and Lindy's Stamp Gang Spray (Tibetan Poppy Teal). Then I tore around the edges of the white brick paper, (KaiserCraft ~BaseCoat) and painted them a green color that I mixed myself. I used my sewing machine to create the wavy border, and for the butterfly antennae, which I printed from Swirlydoos. From Red Rubber Designs, I stamped Tree Silhouettes along the top of the photo.
I made the frame on the bottom, sprayed it with some mists, and then added Ranger Verdigris Embossing powder. I used Ranger seafoam white embossing powder on the So Splattered stamps. The Script Background was inked with Burnt Umber Palette Ink. I used Mini Bet to stamp Fanny Bridge, Tahoe City, and CA.
Enjoy your weekend!
