SUMMER OF COLOUR 2–rose tinted

Kristin provided another scrumptious colour palette for us to play with

summer-of-colour-3

The pinks reminded me of the roses that are blooming in all the gardens I walk past (in the occasional gaps between rain) and so I used the painting tools in PhotoShop Elements then added a stined glass window effect at the end. I decided to use a technique that is popping up in digi scrapbooking a lot at the moment for the letter - shadowed cut-out speech bubble.

SC-3 

half way through and I’m pleased with how my final word is shaping up with a good range of digital technique

CREATE-PROGRESS-3

As well as enjoying the creative process each week I’m also relishing looking at all of the wonderful pieces that others are creating and the wonderful range of techniques people are using – check them out here.

I'm in awe of your digital skills (as I mentioned previously). This one is a technique within a technique. As always, I like how you show your color palette. This is already IMPRESSIVE and we're only half way through the colors.

This is such a great project and you're doing a great job using the colors. Someone else is also moving through a specific project (candle jars for the patio in summer colors) and I think it's so genius to give the colors a structure!
