I am so loving the June Kit Horizon.
To me it is all about summer and happiness!
So today our focus is water colours. As my photo of my girl was all about summer fun in the ocean I decided to keep it simple and use a mix of blue/green and applied to my white base card stock in a way it looked like the ocean. I also added some splatter of the same blue/green water colour mix. I allowed it to dry naturally (if you try and fasten the process with a heat gun or similar your page will buckle and bend) so my page would remain flat and finished off my background with some light splatters of black.
I used the main kit cut apart and used a 1 inch circle punch using the various colours and shapes. I wanted them to appear as if they were floating on my page, and to add pops of colour against my water colour background. I added a row of stitching to each to add texture. I did add the word 'Blessed' which was also from the main kit cut apart.
I then cut my title from the June CK exclusive cut files Summer Sentiments, Tropical Vibes being perfect for my layout. I have cut it in white cardstock which stands out against my water colour background effect. The small flowers are actually cut from the packaging of the Bella BLVD Island Escape (I always check packaging for extras I can use!) which I then tucked under my title as in the diagram.
I have used a 3x4 inch landscape photo matted on a 4x4 inch square of the Bella BLVD All People All Nations paper which I have added two rows of messy machine sewing. I finished this off adding the super gorgeous exclusive pineapple LOVE flair!
I chose one of the gorgeous Bella BLVD Island Escape die cuts. I have added machine sewing to the palm leaves and some NUVO drops to the centre of the flowers.
And there you have it one fun summer layout!
Thank you for stopping by today for a look and I will see you again soon.
