Write.Click.Scrapbook. | Summer Top Ten

The July layout gallery at Write.Click.Scrapbook. is live now.  When I saw that the theme for July is “Ten Things”, I knew immediately what I wanted to do with my layout.  Every summer Todd and I make a list of things we want to do/experience, and we have so much fun checking things off the list and making memories.  I also knew immediately that I was going to create a sunburst.  :)

12 x 12 | materials cardstock (Michaels) + patterned paper (Lily Bee Design) + washi tape (Freckled Fawn, Kid Made Modern) + glitter pen (Sharpie, Elmers) + pens (American Crafts, Staedtler) + letter stickers (American Crafts) + spray mist (Studio Calico) + sequins (Kelly Purkey) + wood veneers (Studio Calico, Freckled Fawn) + adhesives (Scotch, Glue Dots)

I have several layouts over the years that depict sun rays (both digital and paper). To me it is the perfect symbol of summer and I love creating the sun rays. For this layout, I layered washi tape horizontally and vertically across a sheet of white cardstock. Then I cut out the big circle from the layers of tape to create the main part of my sun.

I cut out paper strips and washi tape to make the sun rays.  Then I wrote my journaling along the paper strip sun rays.  I made a list of my summer top ten: boogie boarding at the beach, after dinner walks, concert under the stars, lunch on the Coronado sun deck, reading awesome books on the chaise lounge outside, watch sunset from gliderport, look at super-moon, rollerblading after work, homemade ice cream, staycation in SD.

A few wood veneers, sequins, and paint drops completed my layout!

Making this colorful layout was a whole bunch of fun!  I love it when a concept in my head actually comes together on paper.  :-)

    I've been wanting to make a "summer stuff list" layout but I haven't gotten to it yet (even though we're already halfway through the summer, haha!)... At least I do have the list written!
