Happy Pool Day

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.

Take care!
