Color Challenge

If you follow my blog, you know that Glue Dots® did a blog hop with Lindy's Stamp Gang at the beginning of July.  For that blog hop, I got to play around with lots of Lindy's beautiful mists. I fell in love, and started regularly following their blog.  They have a new monthly color challenge, and I thought it would be fun to play along with July's challenge. 

This month's challenge included red, white and 2 shades of blue.  I figured that was the perfect color combo to pair with Little Yellow Bicycle's Vintage Summer collection and our photos from this year's 4th of July fireworks.  I had a canvas album from Little Yellow Bicycle that I thought would be fun to mist. 

 I used Lindy's Flat Fabio mist (that meas they are all the color, without the shimmer) in Danny Zuko's Denim (blue), and Rizzo's Rowdy Red.  As a side note, I didn't have a mask that I thought would work for the cover, so I cut one myself with my Silhouette machine and an old piece of patterned paper.  The up side is you can customize the mask to just the right size, shape, and style. The down side is you can use it for the one project, and then you have to throw it away.  This is the mask before I misted over it. 

 I was able to use it on the front and back covers of the album before having to throw it away.

Now that I've show you the covers, here's everything in between.  Every single paper, embellishment, sticker, etc. is from Little Yellow Bicycle's Vintage Summer or Naturals collections.  

Love Lindy's Stamp Gang products too? Good news, you still have (a little) time to play along with their challenge. They're also having a Design Team call right now. If you're a big fan, consider trying out to be on the Lindy's DT. 
Thanks for stopping by!
