At the Beach

Beachy shades of blue and pink mimic the soft blue of breaking waves and the glow of a softly setting sun reflected in the sky and clouds. A relaxing birthday at the beach is documented in perfect fashion by Suzy’s idea filled scrapbook page.

That beautiful title work was accomplished by first die cutting the letters with the Little Letters and Little Lowercase Letters Die-namics sets. After adding color with markers or ink, the dot pattern was stamped with an image from the Washi Patterns set. Suzy chose to stamp a coordinating slightly darker ink on the lighter colored letters and used the Sweeth Tooth Pigment Ink on the darker letters. The contrast is so eye-catching! After combining the Triangles Die-namics and Trendy Triangles stamps to assemble the center border, Suzy bridged the transition between the triangles and photos by stamping and cutting a design from the Sunny Day Doodles Borders and Accents set. Simply stamp in black for a high-contrast look or take it up a notch by embossing for a more pronounced, shiny look

The breaking waves presented the perfect opportunity for adding a bit of journaling to one of the photos, and a tag created with the Pierced Traditional Tag STAX and an image from the Sweet Little Memories set completes the look with panache. Documenting ourselves is something a lot of us neglect to do. Take a cue from Suzy’s layout and create a project all about YOU.
