Hello all! I am back today with another layout! This time I used some fun summer photos. Maybe I'm trying to ignore that fact that is is FREEZING outside, maybe I am trying not to think about the fact that I have two kids laying on the couch with fevers and another with a terrible cough, but I really enjoyed working with these sunshiny photos and colors! I was inspired by this fun, summery image from CSI:
I saw the hula dancer and immediately thought of the hibiscus cut I have on one of my Cricut cartridges. I cut those and the leaves using the Storybook cartridge. I added some shading using chalk (and some Distress Oxide ink for the yellow). The photos were already printed in this collage, so I worked around that with my patterned paper and embellishments. I once again pulled bits and pieces from different manufacturers and collections. I finished things off with some glitter glue and gold liquid pearls on the flowers and around the page.
