Sunshine on My Mind Layout by Missy Whidden

The layers and textures on this new layout by design team member Missy Whidden are out of this world and make me want summer to be here STAT!
Hey, friends! Missy here with a bright and summery layout featuring Paige’s Sunburst Rays Background 8.5x11 cut file. I was in the mood to scrap a cute pool photo, so I cut the design three times using three different yellow papers. I used Pick-Me-Up B-side Paper 01 for the top layer and Oh My Heart Paper 10 and Paper 23 for the other two layers. I wanted the sunburst to be very dimensional and have multiple shades of yellow. I created contrast on the white cardstock background using blue acrylic paint as well as blue ink sprays; I like how that represents a sunny sky but also the pool.
I embellished with some fussy cut cranes from Pick-Me-Up Paper 23 and lots of Pick-Me-Up Chipboard StickersStickers, and the Cut Apart Vellum Paper. I created a cluster of pink, yellow, orange, and blue pieces down on the bottom left of the layout. I trimmed my title piece from the vellum and layered it on top of one of the sunbursts.

To make the sunbursts very dimensional, I layered them and then machine stitched through each ray. I bent up the top layer to make it stand up off the page. I love how that turned out! I added more Pick-Me-Up Stickers and some tangled thread around the photo.

Behind my photo I added in some of the rainbow colored packaging from the Pick-Me-Up Mini Thickers. It makes a great patterned paper!

I hope this inspires you to get into Summer mode and create something bright and sunny! The Sunburst Rays Background 8.5x11 cut file is perfect for all things summer. Thanks so much for stopping by!
