Hi everyone! Jennifer here today sharing my June Designer’s Choice layout.

Some of my favorite photos come from stalking my daughter’s Instagram feed, and I have been saving this one for quite some time.

June’s kit is a perfect match with it’s bright, cheery colors and sentiments.

I wanted to mimic the “messiness” of the colors from the photo and chose to use a mixed media background. To begin, I tore a piece of watercolor paper along one edge. To get this look, I painted on a plastic wrapper and then smudged the plastic onto the paper until I had the look I wanted. Next, I used some stencils and traced the arrow and circle shapes with a black marker and followed that with splatters of paint on the page.

Adhering the photo with a patterned paper backing was next.

My last step was journaling and then embellishing with die cuts, stickers, enamel hearts, and that fabulous gold flaming clip.
