Green Pepper Press -- Summer colors continues!

Ok, after all my experimenting with new summer colors, I had to do my favorite summer color - AQUA!! These pages were inspired by having coffee on my deck this morning. The birds were singing and the tree I planted years ago is so big!! Enjoy!

Green Pepper Press Street Team - Crusade #52

I joined the Green Pepper Press Crusade this month. Michelle challenged us to think about our color palette and if it changed during the seasons. I love all colors, but my summer palette is usually aqua with celadon, lavender and sky blue. If you scroll down and see the mermaids for Cat -- those pages pretty much show my summer palette. However, this challenge inspired me to try something new! I tried a different palette of pale ale (inspired by a new spray ink) combined with celadon and dusty plum. I sprayed the entire page with pale ale, spraying over wildflower masks. Then added the layering of colors, images and paper. There's very little contrast on the pages, but I'm glad I tried some new yummy colors for summer.
