We’re back to school and the summer days are winding down, but the summer memories are still going strong! I created this layout using the Dream Big collection and a few of the June Freebies.
I started by adding clear gesso to 12×12 white cardstock, then spraying a few different ink colors right onto the paper. I wanted to use the Love journaling card, so I decided to use a few more to mat my photo as well. I placed the pink flamingo June freebie next to the photo and journaling cards, keeping them in a line across the middle of the page.
I cut 6 different strips of paper to place above and below the photo area, using my sewing machine to stitch them down and add more texture to the layout.
I embellished some of the patterned paper strips with labels and stickers.
On the photo I placed a flair badge over some tangled white thread, I’ve been on a kick where I add embellishments to the white space of my photos, regardless of photo size.
Lots of word and alpha stickers mixed with die cuts for little details on the page.
