Hi everyone!  I have the honor of being a Guest Designer for Authentique!  They sent me these lovely papers to work with - Seasons: Summer.  I love the colors and patterns on these papers!
The photo is of my son when he was almost two years old.  We were in Florida and he couldn't get enough of the whale fountain that "shot water at him" LOL.
The title is made up of a rub-on and chipboard alphas by Donna Salazar.  I painted the alphas to match the colors of this layout.
All of the chipboard elements were sprayed with Sun Kissed Smooch Spritz.
The beautiful yellow flowers are made by Mistra from iMagineD Creations and can be purchased HERE.  The smaller flowers are made from Bitty Blossoms dies.
Love this Zva Creative flourish!  I thought it was perfect for this layout because it reminded me of waves and splashes.
The background paper was altered with paint, ink and stamps.  The honeycomb pattern was cut from one of the papers, and the honeycomb chipboard is from The Dusty Attic.


And here's a little invite that I made as well. :o)

Hi friends!  This is a layout I created using the stunning Vintage Garden collection by Pion Design.
The title chippie is made by The Dusty Attic and was altered with ink and paint.
The chipboard trim and flourishes were painted and embossed with embossing powder by Lindy's Stamp Gang.
The floral clusters are made up of a combination of Prima flowers, Dusty Attic roses and handmade Bitty Blossoms.
I accented my floral clusters with Zva Creative flourishes and hand cut butterflies from one of the Pion Papers.

Hi everyone!  This is a canvas I made using Pion Design's Vintage Garden collection.
The background of the canvas was altered with green and pink paint.  I added texture using mediums and a tile texture stencil.  Then I tore off the beautiful floral edges from one of the papers and used them to frame my canvas. 
The title is made up of mini chipboard alphas by The Dusty Attic, and the quote was cut from one of the papers.
All of the small paper flowers were made by hand using Bitty Blossoms dies.
The decorative flourishes were cut apart from The Dusty Attic Corner Flourish #4.  I dabbed white paint on the pieces and embossed them with Magic Moon Pearls embossing powder.
The larger flowers are made from Rose Creations dies.  You can find the tutorial HERE.
The border strips were cut from the Vintage Garden Borders sheet.
The lovely butterflies were cut from the Images sheet of this collection.
And to add the finishing touch, I added Zva Creative pearl flourishes to my my floral clusters.









Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a lovely weekend!
