Welcome to the August edition of Color Inspiration! Each month I select an image, email it to a couple of MME designers, and ask them to show us a project inspired by the image.
This month Tamara and Danni are joining us. Enjoy- and please feel free to join in! Link your interpretations in the comment section below!

Tamara says:The fresh, bright colors of this color inspiration reminded me of a summer party. I had just taken some pictures of my kids and their cousins playing with sparklers at our family 24th of July Celebration (also called Pioneer Day in Utah, commemorating the founding of our state on July 24, 1847). It is almost as big as the 4th of July around here, complete with BBQ's and parades, and fireworks. I resized my photos into two "filmstrips" so I could easily fit 8 photos on my layout.
I wanted to capture the bursts of light emanating from the sparklers on my page. I used red, blue, and yellow spray inks to echo the look of sparklers and a celebration. I also hand cut the starburst shapes and the "24" out of the Collectable - Remarkable collection. I used glitter glue to accent the letters, starbursts, title, and "24".
I used decorative tapes along the side of my page. I used two strips of the yellow to create a wider chevron pattern. I layered the starbursts around my page to echo the sparklers.

Danni says:Good morning, Danni here with you today to share a card for this month's GORGEOUS color inspiration. I love every last bit of this color inspiration piece and know that you too. I chose to use the Find Your Wings and Fly line of gorgeous papers and embellies for this card, and I love how soft and beautiful the patterns are together.
I love to layer, however the patterns in this line are so beautiful I wanted them to showcase along with a fun chipboard and some enamel dots. I can not wait to see what everyone will create with this gorgeous color inspiration.
