Hello everyone! how are you? It’s Eva Pizarro here in the Pebbles’ blog showing you how to make this quick summer layout.
This was the first summer my son Lorenzo could enjoy the beach, and of course I wanted to document that story! After hours of being afraid he finally decided he wanted to go into the water and sit on the sand. On our second day at the beach he didn’t wanted to leave and finally enjoyed the waves!
I thought it would be cute to create some waves on my page so I hand cut some patterned paper and bend the edges a little to give dimension. I also wanted to include a big sun so I drew a circle on the right corner of my layout.
To fill my sun I used some punched circles and enamel dots. For the smaller circles I used my confetti punch from We R Memory Keepers, I love that punch!
I attached everything in place with some liquid glue and erased my circle.
Finally I added some embellishments and my title.
I created a cluster of embellishments on the left side of my photo to balance the big sun I had on the right.
The sun turn out great! and the little circles punched with the confetti punch helped me fill all those gaps left by the big circles.
Aren’t these alphas super cute? I also included an anchor inside the waves to give a little more movement to the layout.
I hope you liked this layout, it really makes me feel like summer! Are you recording all these little summer stories? I love to include long journaling on my pages, the technique I used on this layout is perfect for that!
