Summer Muse

"Summer Muse"
Kristin Van Valkenburg is back with her
 Although I have always followed this challenge, this is the first time I am playing along.
Each week Kristin gives a palette of color and she challenges us to create with it. 
I have to say it was a challenge staying within the 3 colors, but glad I did because I really love my results. 
Go have a look and join in,if you are so inclined.
Thank you Kristin for the fun play!

  I love seaglass, and was so excited when my order arrived just in time to use some on this canvas! 
Seaglass is part of some wonderful Summer memories for me!
     Isn't the scrollwork gorgeousness?! 
The header was longer than my canvas so I cut off the edges and placed the raw edges underneath on the sides. I had to use those pieces,right?!!
The photographing in the sun shows the colors the best and this is about Summer,
and Summer=Sun!

 Scrollwork Header,Corners and key are by Gina's Designs
Stamps are Lynne Perrella's Collection from PaperArtsy
Seaglass is from Alpha Stamps
Glass Flowers-garage sale find

Linking up with SummerOfColor5~Week1

Thanks for joining me today!! I love to read your comments and appreciate your visits! xx

Jackie - you've done it again! You have created something phenomenal, dear friend! I've followed SOC too, but never got it together to enter. What you've done with the colours is amazing! I love the textures and - well - that Lynne Perrella stamp is one of my absolute favourites! Did I tell you, I love your work? He he he! xxx

The SOC is looking to be a lot of fun. I really enjoyed working with the colors for the 1st challenge and hope the rest are as cohesive. I really like the texture you put in your piece and the stamps are very interesting. - I look forward to seeing what you come up with as the challenge continues. - Have a great week creating
