Welcome to the Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop! Our theme today is FUN IN THE SUN!
If you came here from Cat's Blog, you're on the right track. The Stampers with an Attitude are all excited to show you a little Art with an Attitude, so here we go.
Yesterday, here in Fresno CA, it was a record high of 109! It was also our first official day of summer vacation. Way to welcome summer. We beat the heat by swimming several times throughout the day.
My ideal way of beating the heat, is to head out to the California Coast- Pismo Beach, Monterey, & Santa Cruz are our go-to spots.
This layout is one that I have wanted to create BEFORE I even took the picture! I scraplifted a layout in the 2012 Spring/Summer Idea Book. I had this layout in mind when taking pictures of my kids last summer at the Santa Cruz Beach. ((Do you do that too? Take pictures for a specific layout or even papers??))
I used Juniper, Cotton Candy, Colonial White & Kraft Cardstock along with stamps, distressing and embellishments for this layout. I stamped the wave border, shells and umbrella with Kick Back (retired) and stamped the flowers with the Southern Caribbean Cruise stamp set. I used the Stubble Texture tool to give my cardstock a "sandy" look and to distress the edges of everything. I added some burlap ribbon- love using this for texture too. My title was created with my new Cricut Cartridge - When I was a Kid (Beach) along with Color Ready Canvas Alphabet. I cut a journal piece from Art Philosophy to record the details.
