TOFF#5: SummerTime

This weeks theme over at The Octopode Factory Friday Challenge Blog it's all about SUMMERTIME!!!! Summer really only has a month left before "back to school"!!
It goes by so fast and is hard to think there is only a month left. For some reason I had "Ain't no cure for the summertime blue's" song in my head this morning. Must enjoy it while it lasts....

Twinkle Twinkle Summer of Color Wk 6 Brown

Working with brown is not very exciting to me. I'm just not a fan of brown. LOL
When browsing thru my photo's to match brown..I picked this picture of our dog Harley.
A burst of color to me with brown would be Orange.
And so this is my art submission for this week's color challenge over at Twinkle Twinkle.

Twinkle Twinkle Color of Summer Challenge Wk 5 YELLOW

"Memories"..the layout I created for Twinkle Twinkle Summer of Color Art Challenge.

This is the 5th week into the art challenge. I chose to work with scrapbooking. The color challenge was YELLOW and a bonus of using metallic's. I used a metal brad to attach the green tag and also I used my Twinkling water colors which contain some very fine metallic glitters in them. I used the gold and blue twinkling waters on my page.

Thanks for the visit to my blog today. xoxo
