I was saving the "Shine On" sheet for something and decided this sketch was it! I first sewed along some of the sun rays in gold thread to define them and I went over a few of the rays twice to add interest. I trimmed a strip of the "Hello" paper for the bottom to help anchor the page.
The Be Happy sticker was perfect for the center to cover where the sewed lines met.
Then I just started cutting and layering more Summer Vibes papers for the journal spot and photo spot. I found a clear acetate tag with gold triangles (and some other elements you will see) from Pink Paislee's Citrus Bliss Ephemera pack and a "five o'clock somewhere" wood element in my stash and knew I wanted to incorporate them! Once I had most of my papers trimmed, I cut a few circles of the "Just Beachy" wood-grain paper.
I created the title by trimming "Simple Life" from one of the papers. I have a combo stamp/die set by KI Memories by Hampton Arts for Sizzix and stamped "hello" using StazOn brown ink onto a small piece of Shine On paper then cut with my Big Shot.
For the journaling spot, I used a couple of the rectangles from the Journaling Cards paper as well as a butterfly from my stash, some Summer Vibe stickers, a sequin and enamel dots. I included the "memory" wooden element above it.
Finally, I put a little embellishment spot in the upper right corner to complete the triangle for the wooden elements, even though this wasn't part of the sketch. I used another acetate banner, some stickers, and sewing.
Here is the sketch:
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Make it a wonderful week.
