Every summer has a story September 07, 2016 07:00
Hello everyone! Donna here for my first post this month of September. Wow.. September already?! How time flies!
It's still summer here in this part of the world and still hot as ever. Temperature ranges from 32-45 deg Celsius (sometimes higher!) and all you want to do is stay inside your home with the AC full blast! lol!
It's a good thing that there are tons of homes with private indoor pools you can rent for a day or two (or longer if you have that much money lol!). And no, you can't swim in public here, it's not allowed to be seen in public esp women without the black, long dress called Abaya.
Anyway, we already had our first summer escapade last May and it was sure a lot of fun!
I used one of the "decent" photos of my daughter running around the pool lol! She was so excited but didn't want to stay in the water because it was a bit cold. But she did a lot of running around and made her daddy so tired haha!
For my layout, I used 3 different cut files: Summer Lovin, Summer Fun and Floral Circle Doily
To create layers, I used another doily to mat the Floral Circle Doily and tons of light pink thread under the photo, which were also matted with a couple of papers.
Used my Promarkers to color a couple of the Summer Fun cut files
To break the colorful elements, I turned one of the photo in black and white. Also added bits of black-grayish stickers
Matting the big title was not my original plan but when I laid everything down, I thought it looked bleh over the neutral background. So I adhered it to an orange with white polka dot patterned paper and fussy cut. Would have been much better if I did the cutting using my Silhouette Cameo as well, lol!
I wrote the journaling with pencil first before writing permanently using a black pen.
I just love this limited edition Summer kit from Clique Kits and have few more projects to share in my next posts. So watch out for those :D
