Dixie Pieces' SENSE-ational Summer Challenge

Dixie Pieces is a new blog I started following for the past 3 weeks. They have this fun challenge that's all about summer and senses! Check out the details here:
What fun this is! I decided to join because we have tons of unscrapped summer pictures. Of course I wanted to win the amazing prize RAK but if I can scrap 5 summer LO's out of our hundreds of pictures, I'm will be very very glad! :)

Here's my entry for the first week which is defined by the color scheme, orange, green and yellow - oh so summer! It has to be a page about a smell that reminds us of summer so much and there has to be some stitching. Here's my take.

I made this flower by simply punching different circle sizes and then did tearing on the sides, sprayed it with glimmer mist and then applied gesso on the sides and put them all together with a brad. I learned this from a workshop I attended here and it's really cute - it's a look a like of one of the prima flowers that are expensive and not available here.

Nothing smells more summer than the ocean breeze that brushes our nostrils as soon as we hit the beach!

Materials used:
Autumn Leaves designer papers, DCWV carstocks, Craft express handmade art (Summer), AC Ribbon, all about scrapbooking ribbon holder and brad, Inque Boutique stamp, gesso, needele and green thread
