July - A year in time!

Good morning, hope you are all enjoying this gorgeous weather and having a great weekend, Sue D here with another page in my Graphics 45 Album. How many of us have unfinished projects? How many times do you start a project excitedly only to get bogged down in everyday life chaos... well I have and do often and I am sure it's not going to change in the near future. I am always starting new projects which get put on hold because I discover a new product or technique and sometime a new craft! My promise to myself this year was to finish all my 'works in progress' starting with the 'A Year in Time' album. I do love the G45 papers and the unique vintage inspired themes.

This months page, July is of my precious little girl at her new school helping prepare their sustainable garden. They didn't let a little shower of rain put them off. All the children happily planted seedlings or tiny trees throughout the school. It is going to be so nice to enjoy the fruits of their labor :)

1.  Using the front of the G45 July foundation A Place In Time page I cut and distressed all the edges, ripping a small about at the top (purely by accident!).

2.  The colour wasn't really working so I decided to cover the flower. Splashing some yellow and blue dauber paint to help bring the colour of the photo through.

3. Yellow card stock from my scrap stash was adhered on a slight angel to the photo with three pale blue pearls. Then placing a small doily behind, which was sprayed with glimmer-mist and inked with distress ink.

4.  Using the coordinating cut apart from July I chose the patterned script. Cut the postcard out and rolled it to look like a scroll and placed on a twine bow. This was then adhered to a small off cut of chipboard fence.

5. Using Prima flowers, leaves and Kaiser filler roses arrange to cover right corner.

6. Using same coordinating pattern script paper make two pennant flags and place in top left corner, arranging Prima blossoms and bottle-cap embellishment.

7. Lastly add Say it with Pearls spray, Collections butterfly and We R Memory scrapboards alphabets.
