Down Time

Hi there. First day of the summer holidays and it's too hot to go out. Miss C is enjoying her off time and can be found clutching her iPad, watching youtube videos and playing Minecraft. She has extra lessons and sleepovers planned for the next two weeks, so I'm happy to let her have some free time to just relax.

I based this layout on the My Creative Sketches June challenge.

Down Time
I love the dark wood background contrasting with the brighter pinks, greens and blues. The photo was taken one morning when I found Miss C hiding in her reading corner on the iPad, complete with bedhead.
I cut out some flowers to soften the page and to provide the accents as per the sketch. I like the large wooden plaque as it adds a bit of neutral colour to the page.
I added a layered top border to add more colour and balance to the page and to ground the right corner accent. I was happy to see the black and white striped paper in the kit as it matches the bean bag in the photo. I finished the page with a few splatters of white paint.
 I pulled out the sewing machine for this layout. Just felt it needed that little something extra. I stamped and gold embossed the camera stamp that came in my kit and sewed the silver 'happy' on top.
