It is always fun for me to add old stash with my new stuff. It helps me get excited about using all the product I have so I make good use out of it.
This is the layout I made using both the Main Pool Party July Kit featuring the Live Laugh Love Collection by Elle’s Studio and the Traveler’s Notebook Pool Party July Kit featuring Ain’t Life Grand by Pretty Little Studio.
This mixed media layout was so fun to make. I mixed my watercolors with my gelatos around many various sized circles to get a really cool look. I used some Shimmerz Dazzlerz and purple acrylic paint with my finger to help add some more pink around the circles. I doodled around each of the circles to make them pop. I also used a stamp set from Pink Fresh Studios that I got as an add on. there are some circle elements as well as some fun phrases.
I scattered some of the acrylic Elle’s Studio pieces in the circles. I added a ton of enamel dots, some were from this month’s kit but some were from last month’s kit too. I wished I could have used the Bella Blvd Stars though too.
By adding the acetate paper in the inside the main circle it really added some extra color to this already colorful layout. I really just wanted this layout to be really playful. I am documenting when I colored my hair dark purple last month. I love that I can be really playful with my hair and have a little fun. I love expressing myself through hair colors and things I wear.
I used the 4×6 cards for my layers behind the photo. By keeping them really natural it helped my photo really stand out.
I added the title in a semi circle around the big circle. I did a play on words with the title. I wrote Change is in the hair instead of Change is in the air. I used the Copper Pink Fresh Studio Alpha’s from the June Kit.
Lastly I scattered some die cuts from the main kit. I also added a Maggie Holmes fringe heart near my title. I love the idea of the butterfly transforming like I am transforming my look to fit my personality. These butterflies are so beautiful too.
