I had a bit of a play tonight with some of the papers from Echo Park's "Splash" collection. There's just something about the bright and fun colours that make me feel happy all over!
This is a very simple layout - when I'm using a busy base paper, I like to keep my layout fresh, clean and very uncluttered. I used "Sunshine" as the base, the fun in the sun strip across the bottom was from "Borders". I used the reverse of this to mat my photos onto, and for the title block and journal cards, I used two cards from the "Journaling" sheet. I inked the edge of each piece with a fine edging of dark blue ink, just to add a slight feeling of depth. The title block is lifted up from the page on foam squares. I think I'll add some glossy accents to the title to make it stand out a little more, as well as the cute little crab :).
And I still have enough scraps left over to piece together another layout... which you'll see tomorrow! :)
