Girls Just Wanna Have Sun

Happy Sunday everyone, Ali here, with a super sunny scraplift! We are devoting the entire week to scraplifting the fabulous Missy Whidden! Now let me tell you, that is a tall order and I was super nervous about this! But I actually really enjoyed it and I love the layout I created!

Here is the layout I chose to scraplift, I absolutely love everything about it! Missy has such a distinctive style, and it is totally her own! I wanted to do it justice, without just copying it completely.

I had these fun selfies of my mom, sister, and me at the pool. So I knew I wanted to use the new awesome echo park collection Summer Dreams. So instead of the large star die cuts, I went with suns! I started with some watercolors to create a background in the color scheme. Then I added the suns and machine stitched around them (which was definitely a task!) and I absolute love the look this creates!

After the background was complete it was so simple to add my photos and some layering behind them. I used one of the stickers from the collection as my title. And of course, the best part, sequins! I mixed one of the mini packs with Orange Blossom  and sprinkled those around. Then I picked out a few of the light blues from the Ferris Wheel mix, just to tie it all together! Those little shells are perfect for summer scrapping, I just want to sprinkle them on everything!! Lastly, I typed my journaling and printed on some vellum. It is one of my favorite things to do, especially with a mixed media background, because I sometimes hate covering up all of that hard work!

As you can see, I tried to make this my own, but the inspiration from Missy definitely shines through!

Here are some close ups so you can see those amazing sequins up close, aren’t they fabulous?

KEEPIN’ COZY

Hello everyone!  It is that time of year where the weather gets colder, the fire place’s fire up, and  soups are comfort food.  Well in Northern California it does get cold, but not as cold as it did back east in New York where it can’t get more than 10 degrees below zero.  Here in California the only place where it can get as cold as New York and snow is up north in Lake Tahoe.  This is where I took my grandson for the first time and he had a ball.

We are teaming up with LGK (Let’s Get Sketchy) and will be using a sketch this week created by Sara Scraps and it is an awesome sketch.  Be sure to check them out!

I really just love how this sketch turned out especially the new sequins from the Spiegelmom Scraps shop called Classic Cozy.  Take a look at how I glued them on top of the punched out snow flakes.

There are some other details on this layout using the Classic Cozy.

Here you can see I used some Dylusions spray in London Blue for the droplets on the layout.

As you can see there are some other colors in the sequin pack and snow flakes!  That is why I love this pack of sequins.
