Pocket Page Scrapping with Melinda Sweetman

Hi there! Melinda here with you today with my share for July.

I have spent the past 5 weeks or so sick and with zero motivation so I have just the one project to share this month but I must say, I am very happy with how it turned out!!

First off, I would like to share that my inspiration for this whole layout actually came from a piece of chippy that I had coloured a few months ago but decided not to use which was this piece:

I didn't realise as I prepped the rest of my pieces but I actually sprayed this without 1st coating in gesso so it is a slightly different colour to the rest of my pieces but you can't really tell!!

I have used both Citron and Teal colour shine sprays to colour up all my pieces after I gessoed them and then used those colours to pull cards and some other bits and pieces which most ended up coming from the gorgeous Heidi Swapp September Skies range with a couple of the teal glitter buzz word stickers also finding their way onto the spread. I also added some of those pops of navy that are in the collection. After all the chippy was coloured and dried I applied a quick coat of the Dusty Attic clear varnish :)

So, enough with the chatter onto the good stuff

Here is the double spread. I wasn't able to get that lime green to photograph as bright as it is in real life but I hope to be working on a light box of some sort with hubby very soon!!

The left side and the colours a little better :)

Some close up's of all the chippy pieces - I just love, love, love those little butterflies, they are so very cute!!

And here is the right side. Including 2 more of those flip pockets that I just LOVE!!

The top flip opened - I would say sorry for the change in photo quality but it is actually better!! I realised as I was uploading that I hadn't snapped a couple of pics! 

This photo is on the inside of the top flip pocket - on the left of the above photo.

An extra close up of this little cluster cause I really love how it turned out!!

And one last close up!!

Dusty chippy used:

Well, that's it for me for today! I hope you like my pages, I had lots of fun playing!! I hope to have a much more productive July than I did June!!
