Chilling TIme

Scrapbook layout created for Simple Stories  - CHILLING TIME -

Hello there!

Today I am up on the Simple Stories blog with some projects created for the Simple Stories & Maya Road product swap.  These projects were a dream to create since I am part of the creative team for both companies

My first layout is all about summer,  my daughter's fascination with ice cream floats, some of the Maya Road goodies,  and the super fun Summer Days collection.  The staring point for this layout was the "Lazy Days" paper in the collection.   The spin wheels in the paper was the inspiration for this layout.  So i set out to create a few spin wheel cut-outs using the Cut Shoppe's Spinwheels cut file.

The cut outs were backed using the Lazy Days, So Much Fun, Hello Sunshine, Gotta Wear Shades papers from the Summer Days collection.   The lovely  decorative brads were then used in the centers of each of the spinwheels.

To bring in the colors of the collection to the page, a few splatters of watercolor were used to create a mixed media background on the page.  Once this dried,  the page was trimmed on two of edges, as to continue the movement of the spinwheels, and then attached to the B side of the Lazy Days paper.  All the spinwheels were also glued to the page as if cascading from the top of the page.

And now to embellish the page.  First, I created clusters around the picture using some of the combo stickers, bits and pieces and 4x6 stickers from the collection.  The little mason jar sticker full of lemonade gave me the idea to create a mason jar of my own for this page.

Some white acrylic paint was used to add some color to one of  the  Maya Road Vintage Wood Mason Jar.  To pull more of the colors from the Summer Days collection, some water crayons were used to color the Medium Vintage Paper Flowers , and Ken Oliver's Small Vintage Paper flowers.  Once the wood jar was dried, a piece of Lime Green Jute Twine cording was wrapped around its neck, and all the flowers were then glued to the page.   I just love how the Maya Road products add that charming accent to the page!

To finish the page, the Alphas in the 4x6 stickers were used to create the title.  Oh! I really like the overall look of this page.  It is bright, happy and full of texture, in total a great fusion of both Simple Stories and Maya Road Products.
