Hey there! Just dropping in today to share a summer layout with you. I know the dog days of summer are behind us and Fall is upon us. I love Fall, it's my absolute, hands down, un-arguably my favorite season. But it has rained. And rained. And I feel like I need to build an Ark. So to lift my spirits, this fun summer layout was created!
This whole layout is based on the background sheet from Pebbles Inc "Fun in the Sun" collection. I fussy cut each and every wave and "ruffed" up the top edge. Each wave is glued to a coordinating aquamarine piece of cardstock underneath so as to "reconstruct" the patterned paper. I just love the dimension and movement that this fun technique gives to the page!
This upside down close up gives you a better sense of the ruffled edge and how the waves literally stick out/up from the page.
For a little pizzazz I added Distress Stickles to the die cut star fish shapes! Journaling was printed on vellum and adhered directly to the page. Some sequins make great water bubbles.
I just love the bright patterned papers from this collection as well! They made a fun celebratory banner across the top of the page to support the Back to School party theme. Another small touch are the eyes of the fishes; Hot rocks (gems) adhered with my Imaginisce iRock.
I just love the simplicity of the layout that makes you want to take another look at it and see how there really is more to it than first meets the eye! Have you done something like that lately? I'd love to see it!
