Summer's Here

And here at scrapware we are celebrating with some summer inspiration.

First up we have this delightful number by the super gorgeous Renee.

I am just so in love with this layout, the gorgeous bright colours and the little creatures just scream summer! And what a fab idea to add some stitching detail to those leaves on the branch.

How stunning does this title look? Renee has embossed them with the cuttlebug, and then over the top with some ink.

Wowsers, these flowers blow me away. They look awesome!

Renee has used:LB27 Marilyn Blooms

LB28 Kylie Blooms
CH191 Branches Large
AZ08 Antique Lowercase Alphas

Next up, Trizzy has given this memory box some summer treatment. A stunning black frame with flourish corner trims, and correboard alphas, then decorated with some fabulous summery embellies.

Here's how Trizzy created her project:

The memory box was painted with acrylic paints, the outside heated till it bubbled and highlighted. The alphas were sprayed with memory mist and silver gilding wax was applied. I adhered some gauze and hot glued glass pebbles, shells and glass tiles to the piece.

CH329 Swallows

And lastly my mother-in-law gave me this sweet pic of my husband on holidays with his family some 25yrs ago. It was just screaming for some bright summery treatment.

Tee hee. Just check them out. How sweet!

Here's a close-up of the title alphas, which I sprayed with glimmermist, then applied a light layer of embossing powder.

And for the sun, clouds and bird, I used a white pen to outline the shape, then applied some ink, followed by some glimmermist.

I have used:
