Best Summer

Hi friends! I'm here with a really fun layout for More Than Words and Lindy's Stamp Gang challenges. Give a click to check out all the fantastic inspo! The pics are so awesome from one of our beach days in Corona Del Mar. My son and granddaughter spend hours in the water and love riding the waves.

Here's More Than Words mood board -

Lovely! I use music all the time for titles or some verbiage in my layouts.

This layout is loaded with fun mixed media. Stencil and texture paste, lots of misting and splatting. I just feel the water when I look at it. My song was Listen To Your Heart from Roxette and I pulled the line Lost in the tide. I punched circles and wrote the words then inked and popped it all on foam squares.

I cut the shells and Best Summer with my cameo, I added homemade dots and seed beads along with glass glitter.

The background has such a lovely sea feel and the pics are perfect.

Here's Lindy's color board -

I used a brush to add the color for a bit more control over where I wanted it, then some splatting for layered color. Lindy's gives such a vibrant pretty effect. I love them!
