Yikes, the color palette this week for the Summer of Color is tough: two shades of purple plus one shade of yellow. Well, last weekend a friend gave me a pack of yellow Prima flowers, so I thought I could do something with those. And then I remembered that I have an unfinished mini album with some floral stamping and yellow paint in the background of one page. So I decided to finish that page, and this is how it turned out:
This mini album documents a trip that my family and I took to Silverwood Park in 2013. Silverwood Park is dedicated to celebrating the arts, so there is poetry posted on signs along the walking trails there. There are also signs with phone numbers to call (and QR codes to snap) in order to hear poetry read aloud. I just checked, and you can still hear a poem if you call the number on the sign in my photo. Or, for a shorter poem, you can read the posted piece in the photo below.
This arts-centered park was fun to visit, and I took a lot of photos there. I really had too many photos for a scrapbook page, so I decided to make a mini album. I started this mini album last year. I had gotten as far as doing the mixed media backgrounds for the pages, but then I ran out of steam. It turns out that this Summer of Color palette was just the push that I needed to get back to the album. In addition to completing this page, I went ahead and finshed the rest of the album, too. This blog entry focuses on the one page that is my Summer of Color project, but I'll show the completed album in another post at another time. Bye for now!
