Summer Memories Documented by Nathalie DeSousa!
Hello Simple Stories Friends! Nathalie with you today with a new layout that celebrates the splendorous Summer days, and what better way to document those sun-filled memories than with the new SUMMER FARMHOUSE collection from Simple Stories.
I love the country feel of this collection, so i decided to "modernize" a weaving design for the background of the page.
I cut zig zag strips from a few of the papers in the collection, and literally weave them along the width of the paper. Once they were in place, i brought back the homemade feel of the collection by hand stitching each strip to the woodgrain paper -Sunnies and Sandals-
The lovely red color in the palette matched the color of my daughter's bathing suit -12 yrs ago-, so i printed a few of the pictures, and layered some papers (3x4 elements and 4x6 elements) behind the images. Once i set them on the right of the page (along the stitched weaved strips), i embellished the images with pieces from the ephemera, sticker sheet and tablet. All the florals in this collection are amazing!
I love the tone on tone look of the Summer chipboard piece on the background; so, i mixed it with a die cut piece and a stamped image ( the collection matching stamp is awesome,and so versatile!) to complete the title. A few more embellishments completed the page.
This layout was truly so much fun to put together using the beautiful Simple Stories' Summer Farmhouse collection. I am sure you are going to love all that you can document with it this summer!
