Happy Summer Days By Amanda Baldwin
I would like to share with you this exquisite layout by Amanda Baldwin. Amanda has added a delicate watercolor splatter base, as well as using the Colour Me Happy cut files to add some interest and draw your eye into her image. She has stitched some pattern papers together and used cotton floss around her embellishment clusters. What a beautiful way to preserve a special photo! Look at all the beautiful layering that Amanda achieved. I am so impressed with her skilled techniques and they really give her layouts a pop.
Amanda added fun flare and wood buttons, some enamel shapes, and a few flowers to give it a girly feeling along with adding some wonderful dimension. Grab your darling photos and get started! You will be so inspired by Amanda and her impressive talent, so be sure to pop on over to Happy Arty Days where you will find many more of her fabulous projects and lots of inspiration!
