Getting ready for summer

My new Studio Calico kit came in the mail Monday, so I dug in and made a page using this week's Sketchy Thursdays sketch.

I used more techniques than I normally do. A short list:
  1. I misted, using a chipboard sun as a mask.
  2. I misted the chipboard title.
  3. I stamped a photo.
  4. I stamped starbursts using paint.
  5. I added fabric and paper clouds. (Note to self: use less glue.)
  6. I stamped the banner border and used watercolor crayons to fill them in.
I love the color. Can't wait for more summer shots.
