Cool by the Pool - Pebbles Sunshiny Days

Hi everyone!  Summer is here in full force in the Houston, Texas area.  So all thoughts go towards swimming!  I recently got the new Pebbles collection Sunshiny Days.  It's perfect for those days in the water.  Take a peek!

My layout started with the Simple Stories heart cut file.  I had cut it to use as a template for placing the heart pieces on this layout, and it was just sitting there waiting for me to use the negative for something else!  The scallops in it made me think of waves, and I knew it would look great with the waves paper that I used at the bottom of the layout!

I backed the cut file area with the lovely plaid paper first, then I sewed around it.

Next, I trimmed the waves paper and sewed along the waves to create some texture.

Aren't those clear dots lovely on there mimicking water droplets??  And the chipboard stickers add wonderful personality!

I matted the photo area using several of the papers, but I had to use that wonderful plaid paper again!  For the "Cool" and "Pool" words, I welded letters from The Cut Shoppe Open Alpha and then trimmed blue cardstock using my Cameo.  I trimmed the inside of the letters using white textured cardstock and glued the blue outline over the white inside.  Some close-ups:

For the "by" and "then" I used Echo Park Lindsay die cuts.  I cut a few and glued them together for more dimension, and then I used my Clarity brushes to brush ink lightly on them.

That's all for me today - I hope you enjoy your summer and get refreshed by the water.

See you soon!
