Summer in July

I'm late in showing you my latest swap Fat Page for July, so here it is.

This is one side of the page, two tags  are tucked behind the ribbon. The stamps are mainly Jofy from Paper Artsy. The shading is Lemonade  distress ink and a pale green Pans Pastels. I used water colour pencils for the flowers and bird
To add a bit of interest to the edges I used  Aged Green Frantage  embossing powder.

On the right is a photo of the other side of the page.
I added a coat of clear gloss to the petals of the daisy.

I will be joining the challenge at Country View Crafts as the current challenge is Summer Sizzler.
Now it is so unusual for us to be having a few days in a row with sun, that I kind of think back to when I was a child, we always had sun in the summer back then [memories often play tricks on you]. Making daisy chains was another summer memory, do girls still make them I wonder.

Thank you for stopping by, I always appreciate your comments.


  1. Beautiful pages, love those stamps you have used. Same weather here, I am sure it was all different when we were kids! Hugs, Valerie

  2. Adorable!! I love that birdie and what a great idea with the tag! It is very hot here!

  3. Great summer page Yvonne, I love the fat little bird. I still love daisies too. My older sister used to make daisy chains for me when I was little and I enjoyed making them for my daughter and later for my granddaughter. She now has a six month old baby girl of her own and has already taken a photo of her holding a daisy in her hand.So sweet.
