Hey Everyone! It is Leanne here today, sharing a fun and summery Sunshiny Days layout using the Pebbles Inc new Sunshiny Days collection! I love the bright colours and super cute embellishments that complement this collection so well. For this layout, my colour choices stay within the crisp white, yellow, blue and green hues.
My layouts are always sized to 8.5″x11″. To create an impact in such a small space, I layer both colour and elements to help share the story. Using cardstock and a cutfile, I have mimicked the die-cut ephemera leaves to help draw the eye across my page. Combined with the die-cut ephemera palm tree and surf board, the photos become a significant layer among all the elements in that particular space.
By being selective with colour choice, I can fussy cut certain elements from the patterned papers to suit my layout. Here I have carefully cut around lemon images from the Fresh Squeezed patterned paper and the white hibiscus flower from the Paradise patterned paper.
Perhaps my favourite part of this collection is the printed chipboard thickers. The ombre blue is perfect for documenting our days at the beach!
The title for the Sunshiny Days layout was created by combining both these fun alpha thickers and a word phrase from the sticker icon pack. The word “Summer” has been mounted onto foam tape to help balance it on the edge of the photo cluster. The shadow that is then created provides depth with the page’s overall elements.
Finally, a few splashes of black and yellow paint create texture on the Sunshiny Days layout, as well as help draw the eye across the page.
Thanks for visiting the Pebbles blog today! I hope my layout will provide some inspiration for colour choice the next time you go to scrap your Summer memories.
