Hello my scrappy friends!! I hope you all had a WONDERFUL Easter with tons of fun, family, blessings and yummy food!! I know the day after a holiday (esp. a Monday!!) can be tough so I hope my layout today will make your Monday just a little bit better!
I just enjoyed the weather so much yesterday, that I decided to pull out some sunny, warm photos from last summer! I was completely inspired by my Sparklers DT sister, Laura Rumble. I LOVE her simplistic but beautiful style and this layout of hers was just stunning…
So, for my layout today, I took the Gorgeous strip of sequins as my main focus. I began with a piece of American Crafts White Cardstock and backed it with a paris blue cardstock. It was the perfect blue to compliment the pool photo. Then I started my background for my photo. I misted Jeni B Bleu Vibez straight onto the cardstock and let the mist spread out. I added some splatters with Mama Sings The Blues coloringz and had the perfect pool splash!!!For my photo, I started matting it with a piece of blue glitter cardstock, for some more watery shimmer. A second mat was added in pink, to pull in the color of her bathing suit. I added one more final mat, this time using a glassine bag from the shop. I used the glassine bag as a place to tuck my hidden journaling, on a shipping tag, also from the shop. I tied on a piece of May Arts Bakers twine to finish off the tag, tucked it into the bag and adhered the completed photo cluster to the top 1/3 of my layout, among the misty splatters.
Then came the fun sequin part!! Just under my photo, I laid down a thick line of wet adhesive (I prefer Scotch Quick Dry) and dumped all of my Pandora’s Ombre sequin mix into the wet glue!! I tilted the paper and collected the loose sequins and repeated until all the glue was covered with sequins. I added my chipboard title “Splash” from the old Poolside collection and then, sprinkled some more sequins around the title and page.
This was a really fun and quick layout that that really makes a bit impact. I hope you will give a simplistic layout a shot this week and make one of your favorite products SHINE!!
