Summer Fun by SUE CREASE

Hello there!

Today I'm sharing a layout I have made to join in with the challenge over at 49 and Market's fan page over on Facebook. It's also shared at


It uses vintage-artistry-butter-serenity paper which I trimmed down and matted on to Kaisercraft Antique paper, both papers were distressed. I fussy cut the big bloom from the left side and added it back using glue gel.


Above you can see where I have added white gesso through a doily stencil and I have stitched at 2 points along the edge. I also added splashes of black and yellow acrylic paint. Then I took a strip of 49-and-Market/burlap cut it in half fraying the edges and placed that under a strip of Badshorts which I had left over but not before I inked through my tim-holtz-layering-stencil-bubble
Then I took the cute Dusty Attic summer-fun chipboard and painted it with white gesso mixed with yellow paint. I took my 2 photos and matted them on to limeade-canvas by Bazzill adding little tabs using fawn canvas and black smoothies also by Bazzill. I added Devon under the bottom photo but you will see later I covered it up.
I added the now dry chipboard to the bottom of the page lifting on foam pads.
Then I set about adding my clusters of flowers. I made 2 daisies using Foamiran and added paper flowers from Green Tara49-and-Market roses from The Mad Scrapper 2 and 11/2 cm. I also added green leaves and a tiny rosebud in yellow and a few Prima-melange-pebbles have been dotted about also.
Wanting to make it a bit more fun I added some stars in the paper cut offs used.
Here you can see I moved the Devon to the top tab along with the dates taken. We holidayed with these friends a few years running down in Devon. Not seen them in years! I am 2nd from left in top photo and end on left in the bottom photo. My eldest and younger sisters are here too.
Below you can see the bloom I fussy cut out from the left along with some added Nuvo drops and stars.
Thanks for stopping by today. Do stop over at you'll find loads of goodies to drool over. If you like what you see leave a word or two so I know who's stopped by.
Take care,
