I simply adore this super cute Sweet Summer collection.
This little girl doesn’t need any encouragement to play outside. It is her happy place to be. My flower beds were and still is Mila’s dedicated digging area, but I don’t mind, I love the little footprints she leaves behind.
For this layout, I cut strips from the Let’s Elope (A and B-side), Candy Stripe (A-side), Vintage Blooms (A-side) and the barcode-strip from the Ice Cream (B-side – the little hearts).
From the Basic Essentials, I used Script-Pink Mary (B-side), Gingham-Intense Teal (A-side) and Sassy Stars-Pink Mary (B-side). I distressed the strips and glued them to the base paper.
The ‘You are my happy’ chipboard title, little chipboard flowers, chipboard balloons and the word smile chippie were painted with acrylic paint. The balloons were dry brushed with white gesso and rubbed with distress stickles. I heat embossed the floral wreath chipboard element with white embossing powder, snipped it in two pieces and tucked it under the flower clusters.
After everything was glued down, I added art stones and splatters with diluted white gesso.
