SUMMER BOUQUET COLLAGE

"SUMMER BOUQUET" collage by Sandie Luck




"SUMMER BOUQUET" collage by Sandie Luck


Here in Minnesota my gardens have been filled to overflowing with vibrant colors and textures during our cool summer!  So thrilling!  This collage brings to mind my memories of the pleasure I have enjoyed in my gardens.  Hopefully we will continue to enjoy them a while longer before winter's chilling temps put everything to sleep!

What to do with YUMMY fresh Colorado peaches today?!?
  I know!  I KNOW!!!  A scrumptious peach crisp!!

 




                                                    I added raspberries from my garden
                                                         and a crunchy pecan struesel
                                                                      to top it off!
                       As it was baking the fragrance wafted throughout the house.  How divine!
                                                                       OH NO!!!
Guess what?!?  
I forgot to photograph it as it came out of the oven~
before we began eating it!!!  I will try to do better next time {smile}

1 hour 6x6 Mini Album ~Instructions on "Dawn's Inspirations" Youtube Video








Here is the mini-album that I made today after watching Dawn's video through twice.  
It's a good idea to do that so that you know where you are headed as each step progresses!!  
This project turned out so well!  
More of these will be made in the near future!! 
There are many creative possibilities to embellishing this album. 
Using coordinating 6x6 papers makes the prep work so easy! 





Designer Papers I used were from Kaisercraft's "Secret Bird Society" Collection
This is the beginning of assembling the pages with the added hinges that create
space for the photos & embellishments. 








I used Delta's Blue Spruce & Martha Stewart's Champagne Metallic Acrylic Craft Paints on the covers & the spine. 


For the covers it worked well to use the thick chipboard that I keep on hand.



Inside Pages
The Spine
















On the spine I changed the way that the paper wrapped the area ~ placing the vertical edges on the inside instead of covering the outside of the covers.   
OOPS!!  The photo was taken before the glue totally dried!  It is now sealed tightly.  
Allene's Fast Grab Tacky glue is my favorite liquid glue.  
It gives just a bit of time to make adjustments before it adheres securely.

The finished album awaiting embellishments!  With our sweet grandchildren
I have many photos that need a home where they can be seen & enjoyed.

Sweet Irish blessing for the day!!

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fileds.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
