Here's a bit of sunshine! :)
Hello there! I thought I'd share this layout "You are my Sunshine" using lots of the Echo Park "Summer Days" range of patterned papers available in store online HERE. I thought "I love these patterned papers so much, what about using as many as possible on one layout?!". Well I then thought "why not?" and I'm glad I did because their colours and patterns really look so lovely all together!
I kept the design fairly simple and went a bit "graphic" on this one - so it's not too hypo (not that there's anything wrong with hypo!). In this instance I just wanted the photo to be the total focus for the layout - in spite of all the Echo Park eye candy! :D
I have also used Echo Park's "Summer Days" alpha cardstock stickers here not only in the traditional form (for part of the title) but also I've cut out part of the stickers in their actual negative the same size of the other rectangles of patterned paper not only for something different and fun, but to balance the multi-coloured title, the photo and various other elements on my page.
The swirl to the left of my photo was actually done using the negative of the chipboard swirl that I'd already used in a previous layout (Muscle Power - my DT example for this month's challenge HERE). I simply outlined this with some coloured gel pens. :)
I am really loving orange at the moment, so I am totally into these American Crafts Chit Chat Puffy Tangerine Thickers that I've partially used for my title. It doesn't get much funkier that that! :D
