Cheers! / My Mind's Eye

It's Wednesday!  I hope you are all doing well in Scrapbook Land.  I have another layout to share today for My Mind's Eye.  This is my first layout using the gorgeous On Trend 2 collection, and it is simply spectacular!  This photo of my friend and me at a bridal shower was perfect for this collection...the colors and embellishments just remind me of something tropical.  In this case, our delicious tropical drinks!

I used a lot of the rub-ons here, and I jazzed up the area around them and the photos with some gold texture paste and a lined stencil. I didn't do a lot of mixed media work...just a bit of green watercolor around the edges of the photos.  I layered in a few of the 6x6 patterned papers, and that adorable flamingo is one of the 3x4 Journal cards.  I pulled a few pieces from the Mixed Bag of die cuts as well.

These colors are so rich!  And they look so beautiful mixed with gold.  I used more of the rub-ons here and combined them with some of the cute alpha stickers and a chipboard scripty word.

Look how smooth these rub-ons are...they went on like butter.  I had to restrain myself from just using up the whole pack...they are addicting!  I used some pop dots under that cute pineapple for some dimension.

One more close-up of the stitching and the top rub-ons...this collection really makes it easy to put a page together!  Everything looks gorgeous together!

I hope this inspires you to create something fun and bright with On Trend really is an amazing collection.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
