We have been having an extra busy summer this year, traveling to a lot of lakes and cottages, and seeing lots of family and friends. I know, sounds just awful, right? :)
My daughter is becoming more and more fearless of the water, which is good and bad at the same time. I had my brother snaps these photos of her on my "action/sports" setting as she was jumping off the dock into the water. I focused on using lots of blues and yellow from GCD Studios collections...
I wanted to mimic the setting on my page, so I created some "waves" with the navy strips that I tore along the top edge to give it a white edge. I like the yellow accents, so I did a few tiny punched waves and then machine stitched a wavy line with navy thread.
The clouds matched the background paper perfectly in color, and I love how the different pattern on them makes them stand out just enough from the background. The sun I created with a sun-shaped punch, and then punched it out again with a larger circle punch. I then backed it with yellow patterned paper using pop dots.
Summer is starting to wind down and before you know it, Labor Day weekend will be here!! Hope your last few days are filled with lots of sunshine and good times!
