Fun In The Sun Layout By Kay

Hello fellow Berry71Bleu fans!  Kay here with my take on this month's challenge.  It's all about the color yellow this month.  Whenever yellow is thrown as a challenge to me--the first thing I always tend to think about is summer!  Bright sun, beaches, sand, ocean, waves, hot weather that's exactly the approach I took for this month's bright challenge!  I went with a summer/beach themed page featuring my sun having a little fun in the sun.

Here's this month's mood board hand picked by this month's challenge host Tanya.

All papers used are by Authentique.  The design of my page is based on a fabulous sketch by The Nifty Pixel.

The circle chipboard frames are by this month's sponsor Blue Fern Studios.  To give the chipboard that shimmer I first painted them with gesso, next I applied red/orange acrylic paint & finally I heat embossed them with Star Dust clear embossing powder.  The embossing powder is what gives the chipboard that fabulous shimmer effect.

Underneath each of my flower clusters I tucked a sea shell & a bit of dried moss.  I like the effect the moss gave the overall layout--it gave the layout more of a 'beach' feeling.  At least it did for me!  :-)

Looking forward to seeing all your fabulous creations!  Now onto this months prizes...
