The Splash Collection is such a great mix of colors for summer photos. All the bright colors and adding in the tan accents makes it just right for beachy pictures. It's such a happy collection! Just laying it out on my table to get started made me smile and think of summer vacation.
I chose to use the round die-cut paper as the background for my layout. It is just sooooo cute and I thought it would frame this picture perfectly.
Because her little bathing suit is a floral print, I wanted to cluster some of the felt flowers with some beach accents. I like that there are so many options in the collection to fit any picture included in Splash! When clustering, I like to have lots of overlapping and different heights. After adding the flags and flip flops, I needed a bit more height for the navy flower. A foam dot made it sit just right over these embellishments. Another little piece of detail was leaving one of the orange petals under the stitching bordering the photo.
Tip: You might notice that the embellishments along the bottom of the page extend beyond the paper a bit. A good way to make sure that when you extend your embellishments or design beyond the page that it will fit in your scrapbook is to simply lay your page onto a 12x12 piece of cardstock while you are working.
I added more detailing to my layout with a few simple stitches over the clear cut sun. I used the little x's to do double duty to attach the clear cut. I even chose the red to add a border around the photo and added a few more x's around the page and a few red buttons to pull the design together.
Tip: Although my photo doesn't have any red, the collection has some red accents. There is no reason that your embellishments and details have to be the exact same colors as your photos.
