Beach Bummin'

Saturday, March 12, 2016

Oh help there. It seems I am a bit behind on my blogging. It's a scrappy month, thanks to Calvinball, so now it's time to play catch up. I'll begin with this page I created based on the March sketch challenge on the Imaginisce blog

I flipped the sketch horizontally. I think we were all kind of looking in different directions, but the photo looked better on this side on the page. Other than that, I pretty much used the sketch as it was designed. I used my newly purchased Sunny collection. I'm a sucker for summer themed papers. Maybe its all the grey winter days, or memories of growing up in a beach town. Who knows. But summer collections and photos make me smile. This collection included!

I started by misting some yellow & orange over a stencil I cut on the Silhouette to create a subtle sun ray. I love the mix of acrylic and card stock die cuts. I added a few flair and enamel dots to give the page some dimension. I also trimmed one of the 3x4 cards, then adhered the camera over it. It added the right motif as well as more color to my page. I can't wait to dig our more photos to use with thus stuff!

Of course we waited until our last day in Hawaii to take a family photo. Isn't that usually what happens? Nonetheless, we got a nice photo, which sums up our last vacation. Nice. Lazy days at the beach, naps in the hotel, eating out every meal. A teenagers dream right? I can't complain either, and can't wait to go back.

Thanks for stopping by my creative view today. I've got lots to catch up on, so come back again soon
