Hi Everyone! Today is Theme Day Thursday! Today the Design Team had to create something with a beach theme.
Today, I stepped outside of my box. I decided that I wanted to do something other than cards for projects. Today I completed my first two page scrapbook layout! I'm so excited to have stepped outside of my comfort zone. I'm also excited because I really like the way it looks!
I used the Life is a Beach cartridge. To create the sand, I used cream card stock and sprayed it with Glimmer Mist in Sugar Maple. I cut out the sand castle, crab, beach ball and sun at three inches. I used the font from this cartridge to cut out "Sunny Days" at three inches as well. It's a little hard to see, but I did ink the edges of the letters.
The sun was cut out in yellow. I then took an orange Copic Marker and colored it. Once it dried, I used Stickles in Stardust on the sun rays to make the sun more seem a little more "sunny".
I cut out some other beach accessories at two inches. The flip flops, the sand dollar, and the bucket of sand.
I also used Stickles on the beach ball to make look as though it were a little wet from being near the water.
I am very proud of this layout! My nephew loves going to the beach (as do I) and I have pictures of us just having a fun "sunny day" in the sand and water. Please go to Erica's Craft Room to see more projects from the Design Team.
I hope I have inspired you to become more crafty!
