Good morning everyone! Spring has sprung here, well most of the time! lol our weather is being a bit crazy. So I decided to scrap one of my photos from a few years back of my son swimming.
I started with a white back ground, I do that a lot lol. I started pulling some papers from the Oh my Stars collections that made me think of summer, outside and that matched my picture since I had decided to use a colored photo.
This week were focusing on pennants and there are so many that Bella has put out that are great for summer fun that it was so easy to pull a few that went so well with my layout. The colors matched great and the sayings too! lol I went in and started pulling a few that I thought would work and ended up with more then I thought, I ended up cutting it down to what I actually ended up using, I was going to lay them flat on the layout but I started playing with there little sticks and decided I liked out it added some dimension to the layout, so I added them in as well. I laid some of them flat on the layout with there sticks and them popped some of them up with 3D adhesive so I could stagger them down the layout on top of each other.
After adding my layers to the left side of my layout and playing with the pennants, I moved to my photo and adding the layers I wanted behind it. I did chose just one photo for this layout and a colored on at that. I usually go black and white photos, every once in a while you'll catch me using a color photo, like with this layout. I added the few layers and positioned my photo where I wanted it, I grabbed some of the designer clips, paper pieces and a few other things and started playing with them.
I hadn't planned on adding a cluster on the right side of my layout when I started this layout, but I thought there was a little to much white space to the right, so I decided to add another cluster there. I started with layering two pieces of patterned paper that I had already used on the layout and I loved the clouds, so I decided to use some of those as well. I thought they went good with the cloud paper I had used on the opposite side of the layout and kinda brought it all together. I popped some of them up in 3D adhesive to bring some dimension to the right side of the layout too. Then I went in with a few word stickers that I felt went with this layout and that was it.
Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out my layout! Please feel free to follow my blog and check me out over on my instagram account too!!
