Jaymilee - September 2018 Kit - Sweet as Sunshine

Hello everybody, Jaymilee here, I’m up on the blog today sharing my first project using the September 2018 kit. I have to start off by saying I was in love with this kit. I love yellow as a colour to scrap with and grey is a beautiful natural colour which accents yellow beautifully. I’m sharing today an 8.5 x 11 layout of my dog Leo. I started out with this layout by lining up all the trims and washi tape. I also cut open the straw included in the kit and put that with the washi and ribbon. I glued them using hot glue because it dries quickly and I think its easier to use then wet glue with this background technique. I cut sections of the grey ribbon so that I could use it multiple times.

Next I just matted my photo with black tissue paper and an old book page from my stash. Then I drew a little border around the outside of the whole layout using a black felt tip ben. I love using borders on layouts as I feel it ties the whole layout together and focuses your eyes onto the layout as a whole.

I used a black pen from my stash to write the title of the layout as well as some gold thickers from my stash. I love how the kit this month included some tiny word cut-outs. I had to use them on this layout. I also used the little resin sunflower from the kit.  Just some wood veneer and stickers from my stash.

To finish it off I used some gold mist spray and just splattered them where the clusters and the title are. Finally I used a stamp from my stash and did a full ink stamp and a ghost stamp. I loved how this layout turned out.
