As soon as I saw the Sunny Days patterned paper I knew that I wanted to use it to scrap some beach photos of my son from our holiday last year because the colours in the paper match the colours in his hat perfectly.
I started by tearing the patterned paper in half and stuck the top half to a sheet of white cardstock. I then tore a small strip from the bottom half and tucked it underneath, with the reverse side showing for contrast.
I'm a self-confessed mixed media addict so just HAD to get some inks and paints on the page. I used some shimmery paints and the packaging technique to add the turquoise and yellow to the page and then used a paintbrush to add splatters.
I backed my photos on white card and added a sheet of turquoise tissue paper to help them pop off the page. Before adding them to my layout I added a layer of foam to add dimension.
I added some ephemera pieces - some from the Splash Zone collection and others from a Doodlebug Design Odds and Ends Chit-Chat pack which co-ordinated well. I also fussy cut one of the sun and clouds icons out from the Sunny Days paper and slotted a Doily by Doodlebug Design behind it.
I finished off my layout by adding my title using some teal coloured thickers and some gorgeous Doodlebug Design Clips which I was lucky enough to get in the Summer Sale.
Thanks so much for reading, I hope you've enjoyed my layout. Please don't forget to head over to the shop where you can view and buy the Splash Zone collection.
