Sunshine! - Wendy Meffan

Hi Everyone! I'm sharing my last layout for August using the Sunshine perspextive from the August Foxbox which you can also find separately in the Let's Go set, I have also used the new Fox Cut Stencil #42 and the last of my flair badges which were exclusive to the Summer Collection. I have used 49 and Market Spectrum Sherbet Collection and a few embellishments from Heidi Swapp Sunchaser Collection.

I loved the Palm tree stencil so initially had a little play just to see what it would look like! (please excuse the poor photo quality) This was my first attempt with the stencil and then I decided to fussy cut a few more out, I used distress oxides to colour.

I decided to use a 12x12 paper from the Spectrum Sherbet Foundation Collection and so I made the palm trees a coordinating colour to the green on the paper. I stencilled them onto heavy water colour card so they would give more dimension when I'd fussy cut them.

I made a paper mat for the photo in a contrasting colour using a frame from Heidi Swapp Sunchaser Embellishment pack and added a coordinating paper behind it.

I then sewed around the circles on the background paper for a bit more texture, then I attached the photo mat to the background paper.

I chose some embellishments from the Spectrum Sherbet Collection and arranged them around the photo and added the hello Sunshine flair badge. I distressed the edges of all the pieces I used.

Having stencilled and fussy cut three palm trees , I then arranged them on the layout.

I used sticky fixers behind the palm leaves to give dimension to the layout, for the two trees together I chose the different leaves from the stencil for variety.

I had already played around with the position of the large Sunshine word perspextive and knew I was going to place it to the bottom left of the layout to give some balance against the large cluster to the right of the photo.

When I placed it on the layout it didn't stand out enough to me as it is almost a clear translucent perspextive and was onto a white background, so I backed it on some card stock which I had inked using distress oxides. (In the Let's Go set it is pale yellow)

I then hand drew some lemon slices and cut out the inner parts and used them as a stencil and inked some paper which I then added behind the lemon case. I used distress oxides in coordinating coral and green to the colours on the layout.

This layout was relatively simple but I'm pleased with the colour combination and how the photo is still the main focus of the layout.

Do check out for all the latest Fox Cut stencils and new dies. There's so much to choose from!

Till next time ... Happy Scrapping!
