Tropical state of Mind – Amy Voorthuis

Goodmorning sweeties,
Welcome to this lovely today, I am back after being sick with a nasty flue for more then three weeks and I am dreaming to have some warmer weather so for today I made a a summer layout with one of Camilla {from Maja Design} her daughters on their vacation to Italy last summer. For this layout I used the gorgeous “Enjoying outdoors” collection. I also used some of the fancy clocks from the clock sheet from the “Vintage Autumn Basics” collection through out my layout.

Tropical State of Mind: 
I just love the way Camilla takes her pictures most of the time when her girls don’t see it. The chipboards I used are treated with gesso, rust effect paste military set and antique brilliance amethyst magic both by finnabair. All the flowers are by 49 and Market. I got the idea of using my chipboards like this by our very own Tina {thank you for your amazing talent xox}

I used some of the amazing new background 49 and Market stamps 1787 & Flowery Tile designed by Pascale on the Flourishing bs sheet. they I took out my fishnet stencil by Dusty Attic to add on several places on my layout. Underneath my picture & flowers clusters I added some cheese cloth.

After I treated my background I added three horizontal papers strips from the picking flowers sheet and placed the on the top, bottom and just above the bottom to get a flow in my design. And at the end I added some 3d balls and some shells to finish this layout.
