How is the weather lately in your neck of the woods? Here in Texas, we have had some beautiful spring weather, but it has already started to get really hot. Before it starts to get into the high 90s and 100s, we have tried to get as much outside time as we can. We are introducing Ruby to long sunsets, bubbles, wagon rides, and sidewalk chalk. I made a layout featuring her hoarding the sidewalk chalk. It was just so cute. She was trying to hold them all, but when she’d pick up one more, another one would fall out of her hands, and on and on. Ha! I absolutely love the photos I was able to take! Don’t you think these photos would be perfect for a Crayola ad? LOL!
I was challenged to use layers and fussy cutting on this layout… I love both of these techniques, so I was happy to! I will be using the April 2018 Main kit, Cardstock kit, Embellishment kit, Project Life kit, and Color kit.
I fussy cut a bunch of the flowers from the Dear Lizzy floral paper. (I still have a ton left for future projects!)
I layered pattern paper and 2 cardstock colors for my background, I used some of the exclusive Project Life cards for layers behind my photo, and I layered my embellishments by using flat adhesive and foam squares.
I thought that rainbow Dear Lizzy paper was perfect for this chalk layout. To continue the rainbow theme, I used different colors of Distress Oxide inks (several from past color kits). I have been putting a lot of these small circles on my layouts recently. I have been using an sponge ink dauber tool, and I love how it looks! A couple of the sheets of Shimelle mini alpha stickers are rainbow, which were perfect!
I added some little embellishments in a variety of colors to continue the rainbow theme. I really love those glittery enamel shapes!
I really love how my layout turned out. I hope I’ve inspired you to get crafty!
Happy Friday friends!
