The final Summer of Color challenge for 2014 has a palette of raspberry and tangerine, with lemon yellow as an accent color. A luscious palette, to be sure. Since it's the final color combination for the summer, I carefully considered how I wanted to use it.
The theme for this year's SOC is "Smudge, Splash, and Pop," which refers to our options for using the accent color in each palette. So far this summer, I have made DIY patterned paper with watercolor splashes, and I've made some scrapbook pages with pops of color, but I had yet to do any smudging. So, I decided to do some smudgy bubble wrap stamping with pearlescent yellow paint on my scrapbook page this week.
I also had a personal goal to use some beads in at least one SOC project this summer. I hadn't done that yet, so this week was the week! I "encrusted" some areas of my scrapbook page with beads and rhinestones. It's quite a shiny page. :)
After all that babbling, I had better show you the page itself. Here it is (above), and it's another page for my cat album. The journaling says: "Perched atop a big pile of freshly folded laundry, yet still looking dissatisfied, Maggie reminds me of The Princess and the Pea.
My son has not gotten around to playing with this week's SOC palette yet, but the photo collage above shows what he did with last week's color combo. He wove a bookmark on his Rainbow Loom!
Thanks for stopping by to see my scrapbook page and my son's bookmark! I look forward to checking out the blogs of the other SOC participants, to see what everyone has made.
