It looks like summer is here, finally.
Today I have decided to share a layout with you that is cute and summery.
I have a few rulers that have different scalloped edges on them. I believe they are from Fiskars. I traced around the outside edges with one of them onto the background main paper. I cut out along the pencil lines to give the scalloped edge. I then drew small dots around the entire edge using my black journaling pen. This gave the paper extra accent.
I then took a second patterned paper and cut it down to an 11" square. I drew a broken line around the outer edges using a ruler and a black pen, again for extra accent. This I adhered to the background paper, centering it.
I have a very old stencil ( Hot Off The Press) which I traced out onto a third paper to get a scalloped frame which you see in the centre. I drew small dots around the outside edges of this as well.
From scraps of paper I traced out free hand the clouds and cut them out. I placed a broken line around the cloud outer edges. The two top clouds were adhered down with pop dots. I then die cut the sun from a circle and a die that has a spiked edge which became the rays of the sun. I tucked this just under the clouds. Then I made a kite from some more scrap papers and a banner. The tail of the kite is cording which I attached to the kite, then added the banner pieces to the same cording. Added a couple of bows and wood butterflies which I also found in a "my little junk bin". It pays not to throw anything out. You never know when you might use it. Here is a close-up of the kite .
And there you have it. The dots and dashes lines added a lot of accent. Try it.
Until next time,
this is Donna wishing you a great week.
