Hello! It's August 31st, so it looks like I got my layout done just in the nick of time! I was inspired once again by the two page sketch at Stick it Down:
I pulled out the Simple Stories Good Day Sunshine collection. It has such beautiful colors and I love the rainbow ombre paper! I had thought about using it for the circle, but I wouldn't be able to get the full rainbow in that space, so I decided to used a border punch and run it across my page.
I was also inspired by the Got Talent #8 challenge at My Scraps and More. The challenge was to reuse some plastic packaging on your layout and to write and cut out part of your title. I loved the rainbow ombre paper so much, I decided to recreate the effect using watercolor pencils for my title. Once I had all the letters of my title written, I went over the whole thing with a water brush. I then fussy cut the word.
For the plastic packaging part of the challenge, I used a sheet of clear plastic I've had for quite some time, so I don't even remember what it was from. I stamped on it with some Versamark and then heat embossed it with white powder.
I punched some flowers, collected some random die cut flowers and other embellishments and cut the green branches using my Cricut for the clusters.
