July 4th

This is based on a sketch by Patti Hutchinson.  I knew pretty much when I saw this sketch what I wanted to do with it.  I love it when an idea comes together! 

I took some pictures with the fireworks setting on my camera this year, and I think those photos came out great.  I used Picasa and cropped 6 of the best pictures into squares, and then selected those and created a 4x6 photo collage to print.  I then used my Coluzzle to cut them into circles. 

I bought the Vintage Nation pad by Paper Studios a few weeks ago when I fell in love with a layout on the magazine at Hobby Lobby, and new it would be perfect.  I used Tim Holtz' Rosette die with different papers to mat the fireworks photos. 

This was my first time using washi tape.  I picked some up at Micheal's last week when it was on sale.

I also inked the edges of the red papers with Aged Mahogany, and the blue papers with Chipped Sapphire.
