The Summer of Color 5: Week 4!

Hi everyone!  Are you ready for the 4th week of the Summer of Color?! It's here!


I had a touch of a virus this past weekend and stayed home today to rest.  The bad new is that I had to miss going to NCY to see the play "Finding Neverland" with my sisters and nephews.  I was so sad, but my daughter, Anne still got to go with her aunts and cousins.  And my sister, Karen, sent me some photos:






They all had a wonderful time, especially Anne!  She couldn't stop talking about it when she got home.

And the bright side is that I did get some time to scrap this morning after resting most of the weekend. Yay!

This week's Summer of Color colors are red + red + metallic.  Here is my worksheet:


I used a photo that I took of Anne in February of this year when we still had snow on the ground:


I converted it to black and white and added some magic:


I had all of the supplies in my stash this time, since red is one of my all time favorite colors.  I used Glimmer Mist in "Starfish Red," SEI red spray paint, and for the metallic I used Faber-Castell's "Texture Luxe" in gold and some gold glitter I had on hand.  I had fun working with the Texture Luxe and loved the texture it produced:


Here is my completed scrapbook page:



 . . . and here are some different views of my completed layout using this week's SOC colors:



I had such a great time with this color combination and cannot wait to see what everyone else does with this week's SOC color scheme!  Thank you once again, Krisitn, for hosting the Summer of Color!

I am off to take a nap now . . . Hugs to all of you.  Thanks so much for visiting my blog today.  I cannot tell you what all of your visits have meant to me!

  14. Sorry you have not been well and missing Neverland would have been a bummer :( BUT you have created a fabulous page. Love the magic you added to the photo and the quote.The little gold stars going up your page are a lovely touch. You certainly have created a style all of your own. I brought some gold embossing powder on the weekend , might have to have a play with it :) Get well asap
