A Little Summer on your Monday

Samantha here, hoping to start your Monday off with some fun and inspiration! :)

I created a fun summer layout of my little Mann at the beach last year!

So ok, there's a little mixed media thrown in there...I do usually use it, but I would say my style is more 'mixed media lite'! Ha!
I used a fun houndstooth My Favorite Things stencil and some embossing paste to add texture to the background!

Once that was dry, I layered the photo over a folded up glycine bag, and then added that AWESOME quote by Van Morrison! I found it on Pinterest (of course...ha!), and wrote it out with a mix of Webster's Pages Tiny Alphas and those gorgeous gold Thickers!

I embellished with some bits from Amy Tangerine, Evalicious (I'm looking at you Distress Painted wood veneer and flair!), and Bo Bunny!

I added some stitching and stamping with Lawn Fawn stamps to finish it off! I used Hello Sunshine and Life is Good in black ink!

Hope this layout brought out the summer in you! Are you ready to shop now? I say go for it, now's the time!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
