Scrapbook Layout - Happy Pool Day -
|a close up of the layout,|
I have been busy creating new projects for the different design teams, I am part of. However, in between assignments, I have been using the breaks to try and use up my paper stash, and document some of the pictures from the summer outings.
|A look at the mixed-media on the layout's background.|
I started this layout, by trying to replicate the water splash created when kids cannonball into a swimming pool. I chose water colors like blues and teals for the background. Once the paint was dried, I used the May Mash up ampersand cut file to add a large focal point on the layout.

I attached the picture of my littles with a few pieces of ephemera around it. I picked pieces that had a lot of color in the blues and fuschias to match that of the picture.
|the title of the page|
For the title, i chose to play with the stickers and ephemera from Simple Stories' Sunshine and Happiness collection. I added the title to the top left corner of the page. To complete the page, I glued and stitched the page to a pink watercolor paper. I made sure to trim a small edge around the entire page, so that the background paper will show as a frame to the layout.
Here is the final layout:
I like how the contrast on colors shows throughout the page, and I hope this serves as inspiration to finish documenting summer pages (though i still have at least 100 pictures to document).
As always let me know if you have any questions about this page.
