Crate Paper – August Creative Weekly; Navy Blue & Sequins

Fun in the sun by evelynpy

Hello August! It’s a little bit too late for me to celebrate this month, but today, allow me to share about this summertime layout using navy and sequins as a theme before we get crazy with the new Crate Paper collections.

Summer is often akin to the beautiful sea and sand – My husband and I captured some of it on a trip in Lombok, Indonesia.

The layout I created shares an image from the unforgettable experience – To connect with the water, and navy blue theme, I used Maggie’s bold blue polka-dot patterned paper for my backdrop. I then took my brush and playfully painted navy blue stripes onto white cardstock. To make for an even more fun impression, I dressed up the layout with navy blue embellishments. Both the Maggie Holmes and The Pier collections include lots of navy blue.

As a final touch, I pasted gold sequins randomly as a reminder of the beauty of the seashore. Summer isn’t always about the warm colors like yellow, orange and brown. You can also get away with using a strong color like Navy Blue when creating different layouts highlighting Summer’s most magical moments!
