Glitz July Projects-Enjoying SUMMER!

I was so inspired by this month's blog challenge that both of my layouts are based on summer events!  What's more summery than going for boat rides and eating S'mores??

I am still on my triangle kit (like last month's post!) and was playing around with some random pieces I had cut from some papers.  I wanted to work with a specific color combo and I just started laying them down.  It took a few tweeks and snips of the scissors here and there to get some of them to line up, but I really like how this came out.

I also stamped with some inks and a stencil to create a little starburst pattern, and used a large Peek-A-Boo for my title.

My next page was inspired by S'mores!  I chose brown and beige colored papers to represent the chocolate and graham crackers, and I knew I wanted to use a lot of white paint to be the sticky marshmallows.

I thought my page needed a bit more color, and while browseing through my Glitz papers scrap pile, I came across this yellow paper that I used some cut some doilies on a previous page (I has used the paper pattern on the other side, though).

For my title, I wrote the word "S'mores" on some brown paper and just cut it out with my scissors and added some glossy accents!  Doesn't it look like melted chocolate? A simple, easy way to do your titles!

Hope you are enjoying all of your fun summer activities!  Can't wait to see your pages this month!

I adore the way you used the triangles...esp the corner positioning! Love the glaze on the s'mores too :)

Those triangles look really cool. The sewing details really look great too. Those "chocolate" letters look good enough to eat! :)
