Challenge YOUrself #8 - a color challenge!

I'm back to share my layout for July's color challenge over at Challenge YOUrself!  It's a gorgeous hazy summer color scheme that can be used so many different ways!  I was inspired by the colors and the circles to create this watercolor layout.

Here's the color challenge!

My title was handwritten on white cardstock with Liquid Pearls and then cut and adhered.  Picture Perfect is from a Basic Grey ephemera pack, and the buttons are Heidi Swapp. I love how they sparkle!

I gave the photo an ombre tint treatment to match the color scheme and added in some fun Maggie Holmes ephemera circles here and there.

Another closeup of the circles. I started with a base of watercolor circles, and outlined some with black watercolor, and a few others with a black pen to pop them out a bit.  Added some velum circles to play off the hazy effect of the color palette.

And that's all she wrote!  Remember, you have all month to get your layout linked up over at Challenge YOUrself.  Hope you can play along!
