To honor of the fact that Summer has finally made it to Utah..."knock on wood" I decided that I needed to post a Summer themed scrapbook page.
I chose a somewhat calm blue background page, light blue waves.
3 fun patterned pages were cut into thick stripes [pic above]; rainbow striped [far left], summer script [middle] and purple polka dots [far right].
I found these cute foam beach stickers [top right pic] from Archivers at the Provo Town Center Mall. I glued pieces of thick white string between them to "connect".
For the sun's middle I chose a shimmery orange paper. The "summer" letters, cut with the cricket, and the sun beams were cut from the same matte orange paper.
I used foam puffs to make the "summer" stand out. I also stuck another piece of white string under the "U" where the oranges were blending together.
I also used a white gel pen around the entire page; to create "stitching" around the sun, to frame Jake kissing me and to "stitch" around my labels.
