Fabulous Summer 8x8 Layout by Amy Voorthuis

Good morning lovelies. 
Don't you just love the North America collection and did you already hop with us? I for sure had fun with the "Florida"die! But that's not all, there is a wonderful release coming up in May too. 
I am so excited for it and I can't wait to show you my work. 
Today I'd like to share a 8x8 layout I made with the "Vintage Summer Basics" collection by Maja Design and this time I went for the earth colors & blue. 

Fabulous Summer: 
The picture I used is one of my beautiful nieces Jamie who was born in Florida but now she moved somewhere else in the States. Don't you just love that sea?  It's so pretty it makes me long for summer even more. On the base of my layout I painted with some white gesso and then I added some paste with a stencil of dots by Finnabair. On those dots I added some pretty star dust stickles to make it shine a bit.  I also did that with the text.  

The first time I was on this amazing design team I got the B394 - Ships Anchor & the B395 - Ships Compass as a new release and I thought well I need to use them again that's why I ordered the B279 - Sand Dollar & Starfish & the B267 - Seahorse Family to have more of those kind of dies.
