{Lazy River} with "The Big Splash" Classic Kit

I hope everyone is having an AMAZING summer, enjoying the sun, the heat, the outdoors, all of it.  Today I'm sharing another layout with "The Big Splash" Classic Kit.  This kit is a fun one, and it put me right into the "summer scrapping" mood.  

I wanted today's layout to feature some of the beautiful stamps that came in the kit.  So with that in mind, I began arranging the background layers and placing my photos.  I used fairly monochromatic papers and ink for this layout, with just a few pops of the complimentary color, orange, which I took directly from the photos.

Now that I knew where my papers were going to be, I went to work with a few of the palm frond stamps and 3 different colors of green/teal ink.  I randomly stamped the 2 different size palm frond and mixed that with the 2 different sized smaller leaves from the Heidi Swapp stamp set in the kit on the upper right and lower left corners of the layout.

I used the white glitter alphabet stickers, matted them on black paper, and fussy cut around them to create my title.  I added a chipboard sticker, a couple of puffy stickers, and a cardstock sticker to finish off the title area. 

Next, I mimicked the same types of embellishments on the bottom left hand corner of the layout, using chipboard stickers, puffy stickers, and a couple of cardstock stickers.  I kept the page balanced by using the same types of embellishments in both clusters.  I also made sure to add a couple of pops of orange in each cluster.

The last thing I did was splatter some of the blue mist that came in the kit on both embellished corners of the layout.  And with that, the layout is complete.  Thank you for stopping by today!!!
