Crafts-Too Summer Days 4

The fourth (but not final) week for the challenge at Crafts-too Challenge You where the theme is summer days with beach colours. I rarely use my lovely Dyan Reaveley creative journal so I decided to have fun creating a page for it. However I ended up not being happy with it and going for a smaller journal. You can see I am still in summer mode and I think Mr Mojo must be on his way home now.
This second piece I worked on used Dylusions sprays – pure sunshine, lemon zest, squeezed orange, white linen and Perfect Pearls mists – Cappuccino and Blue Patina.
The same colours were used with masks …….
…… then I stamped with coffee and blue cobalt archival ink.
I just love how the white linen picks up the other colours it lays on top of.
The flowers are from a Tim Holtz die and the spray of ivy is from a Marianne frame die, cut into pieces.
I used other Tim Holtz dies for the birdcage and for the lettering.
My yellow and blue colours are representative of the sand and sea.
