I used the August layout challenge from Sarah's Cards and the colours from Colour Q. I rotated the layout to suit my landscape photo and re-positioned the title to balance the page. I found a sunshine stamp in my stash and used it on the bottom right card in place of the sun from the layout. I started my journalling on the hexagon paper and continued it on down to the white card to help the flow of the page.
The colours are quite dramatic with the contrast of red and yellow, but the grey and white seem to ground these colours nicely. I love the cushion from the colour pallette picture and used a yellow border round my grey background to pick up on the yellow frill round the cushion.
