Although Mr. Pete finished up his classes last Friday, summer vacation doesn’t officially start for the rest of us until tomorrow afternoon. Once the Missy Nik completes her last exam, the summer festivities can commence. Of course Pete has been celebrating already, but we shall join him soon. Tomorrow, school is over. Tomorrow, my parents arrive. Tomorrow is graduation rehearsal.
Tomorrow, summer can begin.
The Seasons: Summer line is filled with bright and happy prints in a pretty palette of blues and yellows. These colors make me think of warm days spent by the water, soaking up the sunshine. So I went with that thought here and used the papers from the 6×6 Bundle to create a fun little beach scene, complete with lapping waves and sparkling sun.
One of the journaling cards from the Enhancements Cut-Apart Sheet and a sticker from the Components sheet help dress up my simple layered background. I added a torn strip of paper across the bottom for the waves, and tied the card up with a big bow.
Hand-cut the sun from that fun chevron print paper. Adhered the sun and the waves with foam adhesive for a bit of dimension. Then I added lots of sparkle and shine with glitter and glass beads from Art Glitter, our product partner this month on the Authentique blog.
I love how the glass beads remind me of the white crest of crashing waves. I am so ready for some beach time! How about you?
