Simple Stories Summer Snapshots | Julie Taylor

Hello Magpies

Julie back with you today & I’m sharing a new collection, Summer Snapshots by Simple Stories. It’s full of vibrant colours & summer icons, perfect for all your summer outings & holidays.

I decided to make a sort of a scene, for my first page & was inspired by an image on the 2×2/4×4 elements paper, the bottom right corner image of the sun. I recreated this, on my page, by first adding some inking, using the packaging technique  & Mustard Seed oxide ink & then gluing an arch of pompom trim & hand sewing my sun’s rays. This gave me an area to add my photo & clusters.

underneath the ‘sun’ I used a strip off the B side of the 2×2/4×4 elements paper & die cut another piece, using the new bumpy borders dies.

Below all this I added some wave stencilling & machine stitching to depict the sea & added another small cluster at the bottom edge to draw the eye down.

My title is one of the new wood words from JD3D & gives great impact to the finished layout.

Thanks for joining me today.

Until next time,
