  • 1 set of "Sunshine mixed with a Little Hurricane" Dotz
  • 1 set of Shimmerz Paints Stencil with dewdrops

Here's my layout for this month!

To get started, I prepped a piece of Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock with some white gesso.  I then applied the gorgeous new colors in the kit: Waves of Blue and Someone Like Blue Inklingz.  I also splattered and painted on the Cold As Ice Vibez.  I wanted some color peeking behind the cut file!  Once it was all dry, I took the Dewdrop stencil and applied some Tidy Widy Texturez through it right on top of the blue paints. I love all of the texture!

 I then cut the cut file out on some white textured cardstock on my Silhouette Cameo 3.  As soon as it was done cutting, I knew I had to create little shakers in the hearts and that the cute Daisy Buttons from the kit needed to be added!

This cut file is very delicate, so I had to be very careful applying the thin foam tape around each heart and the Daisy Buttons are pretty thick, so I had to use 3 layers of the foam tape to make sure the Daisies and SpiegelMom Scraps sequins would be able to move and shake freely.  I went ahead and backed the rest of the rainbow in rainbow color order using a patterned paper from Paige Evans Bloom Street collection.  

Since my layout was starting to come together with the Dewdrops and the Rainbow cut file, I knew I needed a Sun!  So, I took the Chick-a-Dee Spritz and Limoncello Shimmerz and applied both to some cardstock and did the same with the Don't Citron Me Coloringz since I wanted to create some leaves with it.  I traced the sun and fussy cut it out and tucked it behind the rainbow. 

I pulled a few punches and punched out some leaves shapes from the sprayed green cardstock.  I fussy cut some floral pieces from another piece of patterned paper from Bloom Street and tucked the punched leaves here and there.  

Next, I grabbed the You Are My Sunshine Dotz and adhered 2 down onto my page.  I added some tangled thread underneath each one to give it even more texture.  

Look at all of those layers!

I then added a simple title and that finished off my layout!
