That night a layout came to me (hokey I know!) and when I awoke I knew the pictures and papers and design I wanted. Here is in all it's glory!
This is the Maragrita Line from American Crafts. I love the bright colours and the stripes and little buildings. I began with a splattered watercolour palette in the shades of the paper. I went heavier on the pink to better set of the photo. I layered a few strips of paper and added two circles of paper and edged in pink ric rac. I then fussy cut the buildings and built a layered look on that lower left side. I mounted the photo and cut the palm tree (Silhouette image). The title took the longest and I was determined to find the right balance in the fonts. Did you notice how I used the two "8's" to make a Mickey head? The orange brackets helped tie it all together! I stitched on those journalling strips and added a (not-so) hidden Mickey.
I hope you like it as it came together just as I imagined. Thanks for stopping in and joining me for this dreamy layout! I am doing what I love and dreaming about it too! Are you?
