Hi friends! Dana Tatar here today sharing a layout that features one of my favorite Summer photos. I’ve recently dealt with an ice storm that took down nearly half of the branches on a tree in my front yard and I’m feeling the chill. To cheer myself up I’m thinking happy thoughts about my trip to my family lake house when I was warm and enjoying popsicles on the beach with this cutie.
I was drawn to the Pinkfresh Studio Indigo Hills 2 paper collection for the beautiful color palette and the stunning flowers and leaves. The Circle Vine Frame was the perfect piece to pair with these patterned papers and die-cuts. I cut the frame into two pieces. I used about 2/3 of the frame to surround the top half of my photo.
I used the smaller piece as a page embellishment. I layered pieces of patterned paper underneath and on top of the chipboard piece to help build dimension. I used acrylic paint to color the chipboard to match the color palette of the patterned papers for a more seamless design. Once the paint was dry, I splattered the chipboard with Tattered Angels Chalkboard Mist to tone down the intensity of color just a bit. I used the same mist to add splatters to the background of the layout.
I used the same painting technique on the chipboard title. This word is 1 of 5 from the Small Family Border Word Set.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! If the weather is cooling down where you are I hope you’re staying warm!
