Wait 'til you see....

what our friend, PJ, has sent me to share with you!!! Take a look at this layout...

Is this not the coolest layout?! PJ used her Copics to airbrush the background of this layout! She created masks out of cardstock to get the shapes she wanted. For the sun, she used her Slice and cut a circle from the Basic Shapes 1 Design Card. The waves were created using the Fiskars Wave Border Punch and the sky/water was made by simply tearing the cardstock. Here's a peek at the masks she made...

To create her title, she used a combination of 4x8 Chemistry and the String Bean border alpha. The silhouette of the surfer girl was cut from the Slice Sports Design Card. It was actually a surfer dude and she simply added a ponytail to make it a surfer girl! The airbrushed background really gives this layout lots of POP!

This great card is from Tammy...

She started by embossing the background with the Quickutz Flowers A2 Embossing Folder. Then she stamped Unity's Flowers from Neverland and mounted it over the embossed background with a touch of scallop on each side. The scallops were actually created by cutting the Bead Border from Quickstripz and cutting it in half. Tammy colored the flowers with Copic Spica Glitter Pens. This card has lots of subtle detail!

Here's a layout I created...

My son found a turtle in the yard and decided to make it his new best friend. He carried that turtle around ALL day! I finally asked him what the turtle's name was and he told me "my turtle's name is Uncle Rusty"! My daughter names ALL her baby dolls "Baby Riley" which is Uncle Rusty's daughter! LOL! For the title I used a combination of the Summer of Fun Chicken Soup 4x4 alpha and Honeybee. I added the 2x2 Turtle to the center of the cardstock sticker and hid my journaling under the photos. I cut a recipe card using my Slice and the Studio Essentials Design Card. The paper and cardstock sticker are from the Bungle Jungle collection by Sassafras Lass.

We hope you're having a great week! It's half way over now and hopefully the rest will pass quickly! We're so glad you stopped by today! We'll back Friday with an all new sketch plus two more layouts based on last week's sketch! See you then!

These layouts, as often happpens, make me want to stop work and go home and create. Both are so cute. Love the picture arrangement on the surf shots. The turtle title is so simple, but unusual and like the colors. I haven't gotten into the copic thing. . .don't draw/color much. Probably because of that I haven't noted that an airbrush exists. Thank you once again for the reat ideas. . .
