Happy Days!

Hi everyone! it's Wendy here with my third layout for April and I am showcasing some of the upcoming May FoxBox perspextives and new products for May as well as the Happy Days perspextive from the April Fox Box. I have also used the very first Fox Die #1 for the frames and shaker pocket.

I chose my colours for the layout to go with the beer bottles in the photo! The photo was a real Snapshot in time when we were out on a boat trip in St Lucia which made the title perspextives also perfect for the layout.

I started with a mixed media background using broken china and mustard seed distress oxides. ( I actually find photographing yellow always goes a slightly duller colour than the bright yellow on the layout)

I am still trying to use up older stash and so used a combination of Pinkfresh Studio Let's Stay Home and Some Days collections.

I wanted to place the SNAPSHOT perspextive towards the top of the layout to make it stand out so I placed the photo along side. I cut strips of paper from the collections and machine sewed them onto the card stock.

I matted the photo and then used the Polaroid Die to cut a frame which I mounted the photo in. I used the anchors from the dies along with a camera charm and tied them with waxed string to the bottom of the photo, I then added a couple of punched tabs above the photo and cut the banner and tickets as well from the die set. I dotted these around the left side of the layout and raised some of sticky fixers.

I then cut the slide mount frame and it was the perfect size to place the SMILE perspextive in and added it alongside the photo.

I also added some of the (soon to be in the shop )small perspextive triangles onto the paper strips!
