Cocktails! - Wendy Meffan

Hi everyone! it's the end of July and what better way to finish than with some cheeky cocktails! Have you seen the gorgeous Cocktail collection over in the shop? just perfect for all those summer photos.

I have used Simple stories Let's Get Crafty Collection, even though it'a crafting collection the colours were so perfect I felt I could use it alternatively.

Initially I made a mixed media back ground using watercolour paint. I chose my photos and decided I wanted to make a big shaker glass cocktail, I hand drew the glass, used clear acetate and then filled it with tiny fruit slices and backed it with a pink paper from the collection, then I added the diamante rhinestones across the top of the glass. I then used one of the tiny cocktail umbrella perspextives along with some typical cocktail embellishments.

I then arranged the photos and as most people probably know I am a lover of multiple photos on layouts! I positioned them and then added some tags I made using papers from the collection. I used wax string for their ties. I added three long strips of patterned papers under the photos and added the main Cocktails perspextive.

I distressed the edges of all the tags and the paper strips.

I then embellished around the photos using the cocktail glass perspextives along with some fussy cut flowers from the paper collection.

I also used Paper Snips #004 and cut out some of the words and added them under the Cocktails title. These are such a brilliant idea from Morag and just add a little more to a layout.

Finally I added some paint splatters around the layout.

I loved making this layout and the brightly coloured Cocktails perspextives are wonderful to add to fun photos.

Do check out all the new products including the very latest Paper Snips sheets and New Dies which have come in at , so much to choose from!

Till next time ... Happy Scrapping!
