I have a fun layout to share with you today using product that's included in the GORGEOUS August Kit - Malibu - from Clique Kits. It features the Summer Lights collection from Pink Paislee. I just love the colors and icons and patterns in this kit. Plus, all the exclusives from CK (flair and sequins, oh my!) coordinate so perfectly. This kit will have you dreaming about Summer memories in no time!
While my focus is usually cards, and I've got some cards and videos in process, I wanted to document a fun photo from my recent staycation. I took the ferry over to a sweet little town called Port Townsend. I love where I live! With the ferry, it was only an hour and a half long trip. The ferry ride made it so much more fun, too!
I see all the phrases, lately, "mermaid hair don't care". So, I decided to do a twist on that - Ferry hair don't care!
There was a die cut in the collection that actually had the phrase "mermaid hair don't care" so, I cut out the mermaid hair and then used the Thickers to add the words Ferry Hair. (I love these thickers!!!)
When I add my little ink splats and embellies, I usually run for my enamel dots or wood veneers. This time, I wanted to take advantage of the big ole bag of exclusive sequins in the kit. So, I used Glossy Accents to do some little dots here and there and then, put some sequins down. It adds a really fun look!
The next thing was, I wanted to jazz up my page. There was some space that just felt empty. I kept staring at that bag of sequins. Could I do a little shaker element? Maybe some clusters? Then, I thought, what about a shape??? So, I grabbed the Glossy Accents again, did a heart and shape and.... wah la!
There are so many other great things in this kit that will help complete your projects. I loved the frames in the die cut bag. I actually cut those and used the top parts of the frames as layering elements. You can see those at the top part of the patterned papers.
Also, you may not notice but, it's bugging me. My layout got a bit warped when I spilled some water on my desk. I was so mad! So, the photo of my page is a little crinkled. As irritated as I am, I'm glad it didn't actually RUIN the page. That would have been a very sad day!
Well, thanks for swinging by! Go grab YOUR August kit NOW.
