Friends, More than Words & Lindy's Stamp Gang challenges for August entry

I am in the mood for bold colors today, I had so much fun making this most recent piece, it's always easy to get crafty when you are inspired and once again, More than Words challenge blog and Lindy's Stamp Gang had wonderful challenges this month.
 
Let's start with my inpiration for the More than Words challenge. We need friends and circles. Well, my starting point for this page was easy, I knew I wanted to capture the craft weekend that a bunch of us had last May, but what friend? That was the hard part. So I opted for this beautiful picture of Isabelle and I. We've known each other now for several years and have worked on a few creative teams together but Isabelle lives far away in the Gaspe region of Quebec, so we've never met in person before. Over the years we've used facetime to craft together and chatted alot, but this spring was the first time we got to craft together. It was a great weekend. So here is my page:
 
 
For the circles I played with chipboard pieces and titles for 2 Crafty Chipboards. I also added some embossed circles, a flair badge from Cuts2Luv and used some of the many drew drops that I've got stashed in my craftroom.
 
The chipboards really describe well our weekend that was tons of fun with friends with plenty of laughs. Also this cute stamp set that I have from Pretty Little Studios : One Fine Day, Dream Create Hustle Repeat and Just a Sweetie... Just perfect !
 
Here is a closer look:
 
 
I painted my chipboards with the Finnabair metalic paints, just YUMMY ! The pictures do not give it justice.

For my second entry, I was inspired by the Lindy Stamp Gang challenge, oooh got to love those bright colors, they just spoke to me.

Wow, what can I say, I LOVE bold colors and this kit is BOLD and of course I did have that kit at home, it was one of my first purchases in my Lindy's stash...
 
I started as always with clear Gesso on my page, then took out my Magical powders and starting to have fun creating my background.
 
 
I used 3 colors of mt Caribbean Cruise magical flat powders. You can find the complet set here: Caribbean Cruise Magical Flat Powders set
1-Luscious lime
2-Mango Mania
3-Hibiscus Rose
 
Later in my process I added some eblossing and used the following powders from my stash (store links included):

Thanks to both creative teams, keep the beautiful moodboards and inspiration coming. Wishing all of you a fabulous brightful day !
