Free- Red White and Blue Inspiration at the Prima blog

I'm up on the Prima blog today with a red, white and blue palette perfect for the 4th of July. Although  I don't celebrate it here in Canada, I though I could combine those colors to create a summer beach layout.

I got inspired by the 12x12 Elemental stencil. The shape reminded me of the ocean's waves and I wanted to create a serene beach layout.

 I used pieces of papers in both reds and blues to match the July 4th red-white and blue palette.


I used deep, rich Shimmerz sprays in both blues and turquoise to get the water in different shades, like the real ocean. I used Jenny B Blue, Sea Foam and Rock-a-fella blue. This was the perfect layout to combine with a challenge at Shimmerz which requires you to use a mask. Check out the challenge here on the Shimmerz blog. 

I used lots of matching Prima flowers for embellishments and the resist canvas alphabet which I didn't even color.

Gorgeous, Keren, as always. I never saw your layout that I didn't like. How do you store your layouts? Each one of them deserves to be framed in a shadow box :) I don't think I congratulated you before on joining the Prima DT. So happy for you! They are lucky to have you, you are very talented and inspiring designer.

I always find the July PPP so incredibly challenging, have none of the blue and red that's always in the palette. Lucky you to have some perfect new Prima stash! LOVE that mask and the Shimmerz. This is a truly amazing page, yes it is!! hugs,
