I was so inspired by this month’s blog challenge that both of my layouts are based on summer events! What’s more summery than going for boat rides and eating S’mores??
I am still on my triangle kick (like last month’s post!) and was playing around with some random pieces I had cut from some papers. I wanted to work with a specific color combo and I just started laying them down. It took a few tweeks and snips of the scissors here and there to get some of them to line up, but I really like how this came out.
I also stamped with some inks and a stencil to create a little starburst pattern, and used a large Peek-A-Boo for my title.
My next page was inspired by S’mores! I chose brown and beige colored papers to represent the chocolate and graham crackers, and I knew I wanted to use a lot of white paint to be the sticky marshmallows.
I thought my page needed a bit more color, and while browsing through my Glitz papers scrap pile, I came across this yellow paper that I used some cut some doilies on a previous page (I has used the paper pattern on the other side, though).
For my title, I wrote the word “S’mores” on some brown paper and just cut it out with my scissors! A simple, easy way to do your titles!
Hope you are enjoying all of your fun summer activities! Can’t wait to see your pages this month!
Every Day…Enjoy the Ride
