Summer Fun By Di Garling

I would like to share this exquisite layout by Di Garling.  This is a perfect summer layout for that cute little man in your life.  Di adds some interest to her layout with her splattered background and wonderful layering.  What a beautiful way to preserve a special photo!  Her layout certainly attracts your eye and draws you right into her masterpiece.  I am so impressed with her skilled techniques and the way she gives her layouts a pop.

Don’t you just love how Di used the corrugated cardboard for her background?  Sometimes using different materials can bring a lot of creativity to your layout.   It all begins with your imagination.  Grab your darling photos and get started!  You will be inspired by Di and her impressive talent, so be sure to pop on over to Di’s Creative Space where you will find many more of her outstanding projects and lot and lots of inspiration!
