Sweet Smiles of Summer

Today I'm showing how I created two layouts from one background cut file.
The Geometric Swirls cut file can be found under free files on the Paper Issues store page.
I cut away some of the outer "heart" area so the words on the new Pinkfresh Studio paper could show through.
I love Pinkfresh's new glittered foam words and hearts. It worked great with Disney pictures.
For the second layout, I used the negative cuts to create the background and pieces to form water droplets.
I watered down acrylic paint and blew it to add splashes around the photo. The word "Splash" comes from Just Nick Studio.
I tucked in my journaling and called this second page done. Try out creating pages using inspiration from positive and negative parts of the cut files.

Meet Me in the Sunshine

Paper Issues has a themed link up for "It's all about that Face."  This theme fit perfect with my stack of travel pictures in the sun with palm trees over spring break.  I loved this colorful paper from Webster's Pages. I added Dear Lizzy Serendipity ephemera to coordinate with the background. 
This printable can be found in the Paper Issues free files section. I added a Evalicious sticker to finish off the card. My title Thickers are from Amy Tangerine's Rise and Shine collection tie in the  horizontal elements in this layout.
Have a day filled with colorful fun!
