Summer Fun using Echo Park Paper Slice of Summer by Kerryn Fry

Hello everyone!
Today I've create my first page using the collection,
Echo Park Paper Slice of Summer.
I found the perfect photos of my niece,
from January 2012, in her gorgeous heart covered swim suit.
I had a series of photos to fit on the page,
so decided to do a little fussy cutting.

The page has started with Bazzill Kraft Cardstock.
The background effect was created with Distress Oxide Inks
Faded Jeans and Speckled Egg,
using an older Vicki Boutin Stencil.
I've dried the oxide inks with a heat gun
Iridescent Glitter.....LOVE IT!!

I've hand cut a number of elements from Fun in the Sun paper.
The sun and 'Hello Summer' cloud have been lifted with foam tape.
The other sparkle element on the page is Ranger Stickles Glitter Glue.
I've added it to the flowers, butterflies and the sun.

The words have also been hand cut from the Fun in the Sun paper.
The banner was cut from 3x4 Journaling Cards.
Plenty of foam tape used to create dimension across the page.

The flowers and butterflies have been hand-cut
form the 3x4 Journaling Cards paper.
I've used a border punch with the reverse side of Fun in the Sun
for the lighter blue strip and to back the words 'Summer is here'.

The 2 Crafty title Summer Fun has been covered 
with white gesso as a base.
Once dry, I've added a layer of 
Stickles Glitter Glue for the extra sparkle.
I've also add the glitter glue to the hearts 
on the bathers in the middle photo.
The photos have been cut out to fit on the page
and each photo has been lifted with foam squares.

Thank you for visiting the Blog today.
I hope you like the page 
and are inspired to do some fussy cutting.
Have a fabulous weekend, enjoy your crafting time
and please join us again on Monday for Fiona's next project.
