Hello and welcome! It's the 15th today - halfway through! - and that means it's time for the Gossamer Blue team to offer up some mid month extra inspiration.
The first thing I do when I open a kit is look for some special colour combinations. That was easy with the July kits : there are lots of beautiful blues, some yellows and reds; but as I moved it all about on my desk I also discovered some sophisticated neutrals
I especially loved that Gossamer Blue cork board paper (Add on 2) and the Main Kit alpha from Ctate paper. I could see lots of options - maybe pair the cork and wood with reds and think about doing a Christmas page? Maybe not. Or with the leaf greens? No: I'll keep that in mind for the end of the summer.
Instead I went back to that cork and gradually started adding more colour...
.....and in the end I started loving the colours so much that I even got out some paint and dip dyed those neutral alphas...
so that they picked out the blue in the stunning Crate Paper feather pattern. I have plenty of letters left to try the same technique with a different shade.
That's it for this month. See you next time? Now click on a name to hop round and check out the inspiration from the rest of the team. You're sure to find something to get you summer scrapbooking.
