Soleil Blog Hop



Welcome to the BasicGrey Soleil Blog Hop!
 You should have arrived here from the blog of  Kelly Rasmussen .
The bright, unapologetic hues of light dancing through the atmosphere, refracted from a prism or reflecting off the water are captured in Soleil, a collaborative collection by BasicGrey and Sassafras. This line is both serene and invigorating with its harvested-from-the-earth fruit and flower colors like soft lavender, juicy peach, tangerine, blueberry juice and watermelon. Let its calming yet spirited nature inspire your creative soul.



As soon as I saw this bright chevron patterned paper in the Soleil collection I knew immediately what photos I was going to use -some recent photos of my son playing and exploring at the beach. I love the pops of red and pink that make my layout come to life. I cut one of the cardstock flowers to create my sun, I simply snipped off the end of each petal and layered a punched cloud over the top. This collection is defintely versatile enough for boy and girl pages and since I have two boys its just PERFECT!
