Some background. I entered a two-step challenge on the Paper Popsicles board. The first step was to upload at least one recent summer photo that hadn't been scrapped yet. So I posted this photo of my girls playing in the sprinklers in our backyard.
Not my favorite photo of all time, but I thought it had potential, and it was a great summer memory. Then the second step of the challenge was revealed. It was to create a layout using the selected photo that also included:
- yellow, blue and brown cardstock
- 3 buttons
- 4 different patterned papers
- The word blast in the title (using die cut, sticker or rub-on letters)
- 3 stickers
So, without further ado...here's the finished layout:
I made this flower by cutting a circle of paper into a spiral and rolling it back up.
I'm loving how bright a fun it turned out. And to think...had I not had all those challenge requirements, I would've taken this a completely different direction!
