I've been slowly working my way through my photos from last summer... and this is yet another one of my THREE girls outside together -- because then, there were only three. :) I didn't really have any ideas when I started with this photo... but I had this great rainbow assortment of papers from the August Cocoa Daisy kit, and I was looking through the CD gallery and found two rainbow-ific pages by some lovely Daisy ladies: Love You by sassiescrapper and Just a Good Ol' Boys by Darkchami... I decided to just go for it.
The arrangement of papers in the background was pretty much exactly how I'd laid them out when I first got the kit and saw how great they looked together. I just cut them apart, glued them to a piece of old paper I knew I wasn't going to use for anything else, and then stitched up the edges to give a little definition and interest.
I tried to sort of colour match the embellishments to the colour of patterned paper they were near... and I also tossed in quite a few metallic enamel dots, because they are awesome and metallics go with everything. :)
Messy date stamping! Great for the messy stamper, like me. :) Also added in a few circles punched from a scrap of paper, because this space was a little empty and the date-stamped label was looking lonely.
Lots of layering! A white ampersand, cut using the Cocoa Daisy cut files I designed to go with the July kits, plus some of the free printable labels that come with your kits when you are a subscriber! Love those navy blue Alphabean letters!
Metal heart. Love it.
For more inspiration, cool stuff, and generally just really nice stuff to look at,
