Nothing inspires me more than a Peachy Keen challenge! I'd have to say this week's photo inspiration challenge is one of the most inspiring so far:
Even though I love bright and bold colors, I'll admit this color combo was a bit intimidating at first! It is VERY bright. I wondered "how the heck am I going to find paper to match these colors?" After going through my 6x6 stash and coming across the "My Girl" collection by My Mind's Eye, I knew I had something:
A table centerpiece! The colors match relatively closely (although I didn't include green) and the pinwheels represent the 'Play' part of the picture.
I filled a mason jar with sand to give it a summery/beach feel, and adhered the pinwheels and butterflies to orange paper straws. I also adhered some lace around the jar to accent it, and thought the "cottony" look of the lace represented beach towels and summer dresses.
All papers aside from the solid cardstock centers are from the My Girl collection, and the faces are stamped on Recollections cardstock. I used faces from set PK-943, and the 'Happy Summer!' sentiment is from the June Stamp Club of the Month set.
I moved the centerpiece inside so it wouldn't get ruined, and I'm loving how it brightens up my dining room table. :) It's definitely a keeper!
