Love Summer Art - Layout Splish Splash

Hey bloggers - welcome to day 2 of the #LoveSummerArt collaborative project with YouTube Artists around the WORLD!  The event runs from July 17 - 20th.  To find these artist,  just type #LoveSummerArt  in your YouTube search bar. 

This is a super fun way for you to discover new artists on YouTube, and be inspired by their work. All genres of art are participating - Exciting Right!     

Today  I wanted to share with you a layout that I created from some of the Prints we pulled in the July Ustream.   Remember these...  If you missed the ustream, it is linked up in the right bar. 

I decided to create a layout and use these guys as my frame around my photo, and as part of my ephemera in my embellishment clusters. 

I have shared many times in the past few months, I'm falling in love with hand lettering.  I love the look of the painted imperfect title that I did with watercolors then fussy cut around the.  Isn't this just a fun way to add a title to this wonderfully splashy layout?  

I also tucked in several of the die-cuts that I've been using to pull prints with in the last few months. Their interesting patterns keep my layout looking fresh, and unique. 

I used Faber-Castell Design Memory Crafts® Glaze Medium, Prima's Bubble stencil and little Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals to create the splashed background.  I love customizing my layouts this way. 

To see how I did this, I've prepared a process video

Thank you for stopping in today.  I hope I have inspired you to create a fun summer layout.  Don't forget to check back tomorrow. I have a Mixed Media card for you.  

Also don't forget to check out the #LoveSummerArt  over on YouTube.  I've been inspired by so many wonderful artists this week, and have found some new people to stalk (I mean follow).   

Have a great weekend,
