It's officially summer time in our house and I felt like making a page to celebrate. Yes, I know summer doesn't actually start until the 21st of June, but when the pool comes out - it's summer right?
For this page, I machine stitched a crazy border on a piece of plain white card stock. Then, I used pool blue acrylic paint, an old paint brush, and some paper towels to make a smudgy mess up in the corner. I tore the edges of the pictures to make them just as messy as everything else and then hunted for some embellishments. I ended up using some Recollections dimensional stickers, Sassafras Lass layered blossoms, Prima flowers with Glimmer Mist, and some random buttons. I made my own feltie by stitching a big yellow button to some felt circles and then adhered it to a recycled layered blossom. I also stamped with white acrylic paint on a piece of left over fabric and used it in the corner as my date.
Overall, this project took about an hour - mostly the sewing and finding just the right embellishments. That reminds me - I need to clean the scrap room!
Photography is my passion and I love to capture real moments. I strive to show personality and truth in my photos. I love to scrapbook and distress everything - it's cheap therapy! I quilt, sew, woodwork, and love to get my hands dirty. I am a homeschool mother of four and married to the love of my life. We live a crazy Air Force life, but it gives me a lot to scrap about.
