CCG Flashback Week 1

Thursday, August 1, 2013

Hey, y'all!  We're doing a little flashback, over at Color Combos Galore, this month, meaning we're asking you to take a look back at all the fabulous inspiration boards in the CCG Album, pick one that inspires you, and show us what you can cook up.  Each week, we'll take a year back in time.  So, for this first week, we want you to pick one from this current 2013 year (ie Inspiration Boards #230-249).  Next week, choose one that inspires you from 2012, the following week from 2011, and the final week from way back in 2010.  It's not necessary to focus on the prompts.  Just go with the color palette and be inspired, in your own way, from the photos in the board.  Here's how I was inspired this week.
I started this layout by creating the sun from varying colors and patterns of yellow, paper strips, as well as a circle center and anchoring it all with mustard-threaded, straight, machine stitches.  A trio of die-cut clouds were later added to help set the scene.
I then matted my photos with Whisper White cardstock and backed them with a number of color-coordinating, scrap, paper bits, as well as a piece of vellum.  I then grounded them with the "SUMMER adventures" title.  The first half of the title was stamped in More Mustard ink, and the second half was cut, from Lake House cardstock, using my Cameo and glittered.
A bit of "HERE", arrow flair, as well as the stamped, in Chocolate Chip ink, "JUL 23 2009" date, grounds the title's left end.
The seal was stamped, in Daffodil Delight ink, on a White, cardstock die cut and filled in with the Visitor's Center, Omaha, NE info.  It was then backed with a Cameo-cut arrow and flanked with a bit of white string, tied in a bow, and "JUL" flair.
A heart, chipboard tab...
as well as an "all SMILES", chipboard phrase, complete the design.
Additional inspiration for this layout came from City Crafter Challenge Blog's Week 170: Summertime, Let's Get Sketchy's Anything Goes Week, and Shimelle's Sketch Twenty-Four.
And here's my chosen 2013 Inspiration Board #245.
Can't wait to see what you all cook up with your chosen boards!  Please be sure to stop by the CCG forum link above to check out all the challenge details.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Be blessed!
