First Day of Summer | Monique Liedtke August 5, 2019 07:00

Hello JustNick friends! This week the team is sharing summer layouts and here's the one I created. I used the brand new "Flower Bud Background" cut file and the "Henley" collection from Felicity Jane.

The photo was taken on the very first day of summer. It was a beautiful day here in the Netherlands and my daughter and I decided not to waste this opportunity to grab an Frappucino and sit on a sunny terrace in the market square while enjoying the sunshine and do some "people watching". 

This is the cut file I used: "Flower Bud Background". I sized it to 8" x 8", flipped it horizontally so the most buds are on the right side and placed it on my background at a bit of an angle: 

I cut off the stems with buds that were behind my photo and adhered these at other places on my page. I also turned them around so I ended up with two different colors:

Behind the cut file I adhered a piece of 8" x 8" white cardstock, also at a little angle, which is obvious in this photo:

After adhering the photo, die-cuts and whashi elements I added a little machine stitching, hand journaling and a few drops of silver colored Mr. Huey's spray ink.
