Sizzlin Summer Colors and Ribbon

That’s the Challenge #76 currently over at Really Reasonable Ribbon. A bit out of my color comfort zone, but found that I really loved these bright juicy colors together. There’s still time to play so take a look.

Just a simple little summer banner in shades of turquoise, orange, and sunny yellow – the colors are actually quite a bit more vibrant than they seem to show up here – my photo skills are not always what I would like Winking smile.

Hope you’re having a happy summer!!

Summer Sea Sand and Children

I love these images bought from Vintage Image Madness and I absolutely love them ~ soft colors, vintage, beautifully illustrated and I thought they would make a lovely garland. I think they did. One will go to Lake Tahoe Holidays here in town and one into my Etsy shop. I cannot seem to take a good close up of an entire banner, but if you click on it ~ you can get a closer look.

Hooking up to Challenge #75 “Anything but a card and ribbon” at Really Reasonable Ribbon. Please check them out ~ I love everything I have purchased from them ~ great variety and great prices!!

The 1st one

100_6661 (640x320)

100_6667 (640x615)

100_6662 (640x480)

100_6663 (640x480)

And the 2nd one




I used my own hand-dyed and crinkled seam binding, on the 2nd one adding natural button twine, shells, faux pearls and rhinestones and of course glitter to accent.

Take care
