Awesome & Cheeky / Citrus Twist Kits

Happy Monday, friends!  Today I'm sharing another layout for Citrus Twist Kits using the January Main Kit and Sprinkles Kit.  I decided to showcase this cute photo of my daughter in the pool, and since there was a lot of aqua in it, I used bits and pieces of lots of other colors around it.  I used a star cut file from The Cut Shoppe and backed the stars with various papers from the Main Kit.  I used a big Heidi Swapp sunburst stencil and some Mustard Seed Distress Ink to create the sun rays, and I also added a bit of Color Shine.  The blue splatters are acrylic paint.

I really enjoyed working with the January kits...the colors were just my style!

I added pop dots behind the star cut file to raise it up and create some dimension.  I added some tangled thread for added interest.  Those cute sentiment strips above the photo are from the branding strip of the exclusive patterned paper in the  Main Kit.  I also used one of the exclusive stamps.  I stamped it on scrap cardstock and punched them out to use around the page.

I added white gesso to this wood veneer, which comes in an aqua color.  I used gelatos and inks to color it.  I added in one of the Heidi puffy stickers to complete my title.  That space created a fun little area for my journaling.

Here's one final close-up of the bottom of the cut file...I think adding the pop dots really makes a big difference.  I love the added pops of blue from the paint.  It helps pull some of the blue from the photo.

Here's my process video if you'd like to check it out!
