Beach Bum - Bold Color Challenge
Today at Frosted Designs, our challenge is to Be Bold! You can be bold in your colors, title or subject matter.
I took these pictures from our Mexico trip and scrapped them in bright bold colors. We had so much fun in Mexico and I hope to return before my passport expires!!! This page is for Tyler's album so the title is singular even though all three boys are in one of the shots.
I grabbed my Gypsy and found this image from Paper Trimmings. I sized it to 11 inches to use as a backdrop for my photos.
I cut out this layer in orange cardstock.
I cut out the shadow of the image (also at 11 inches) and cut it out in bright polka dotted paper from Hobby Lobby.
For the title, I wanted Beach Bum but not the board shorts. I grabbed this image from Life is a Beach and sized it to 2.65 inches. I cut it out of blue cardstock (the same cardstock I used to mat my photos).
I trimmed off the board shorts.
I needed a bright embellishment and used my Epiphany Crafts square punch and punched a tag from Quick Quotes.
I ended up using the square of the larger flower. I adhered it to the square charm settings (also Epiphany Crafts) and put a bubble cap on top.
I tied a bit of blue twine to the top.
I added some blue stickles to the title.
I stuck a little tissue tape below the yellow ribbon for a little bit of fun!
Here are my beach bums - the older two are burying the youngest one in the sand. Bliss indeed!
What is your favorite vacation spot?
