Summer Tales Layout with Elisa

Hi everyone!!!

I'm so happy these days because it's July!  And July is my month!! Ok yes, the weather is hot. But, I love summer and I love to celebrate it everyday!

I started thinking..on summer every trip, every walk, every coffee with friends.. they could all become a tale! This is way I decided to use the first pictures of this month to create a LO entitled Summer Tales!

I used the BoBunny Celebrating Freedom collection and I had a lot of fun with the pictures. I didn't want to use their real color and was searching for a vintage look, so I applied a 50% Black & White Mask before stamping them. Since my images were vintage, I wanted a funny background to pair them with! So, I thought about something that could seem a watermelon.

To create the watermelon effect, I chose the Damask Double Dot Dusty Rose Cardstock and the Watermelon Paper by Celebrate Freedom to assemble my watermelon background. For the black seeds I decided so stamp some little flowers here and there in the center of some dots in the dusty rose cardstock.

And now let me show you some pictures of the details:

Near the main picture, I used the bigger embellishment. The two pinwheels (of course in pink and green) and some embossed flowers made with Simply Flowers Stamp Set.

On the other side, I used a pick butterfly, a little red flower, and a a red resin star.
Behind the pictures I created some layers using the "Celebrating Freedom" and the "Happy" 12x12 papers.

Of course I also used some of the Noteworthy Flowers (I cut a branch of flowers into single ones) and the little glittered dots you see are in the Celebrating Freedom Thicker Alpha.

For the title I used two Thicker Alpha: Celebrating Freedom (red glittered) and Sweet Clementine (pink with red foiled center).
Scrapbooking Tip: I really love writing my journaling with a gray pen. Black is really too strong and I don't love it on my LO.

Thanks for following along! Until next time,
