It must be Monday because I am here on the blog, ready to bring you inspiration featuring projects created with Snickerdoodle Designs’ latest collection: Backyard Splash. Backyard Splash is currently available only at the Studio as part of the Coordinated Collection. (It will be released in Karen’s other stores July 28th.) I’m showing you the bundle here but separates are also available at only $1 each.
I love the block design in Pool Fun by Rochelle. She also used a template by Miss Mel. Rochelle was able to incorporate many of the patterned papers in the collection. I like the way she placed the cut-out circles atop the circle paper. She kept her clusters small so as not to detract from her photos. The cut-out arrows point to the title which is a clever design technique.
I like the large, cut out drops in Buncho by Renee. She used a template by Heartstrings Scrap Art. Her photos are adorable and I especially love the close up of the balloons and the tiny word strip she placed there. The cascading cluster featuring the balloons really supports her theme. The combination of the masked and framed photos is very appealing.
I guess I’m not surprised that Cooper has his own wading pool. He’s shown here in Summer Splash by Zanthia. She used one of my favorite pieces in the collection, the stacked frame. I like the combination of blue and orange papers used to frame the layout. The masked paper and paint, as well as the water drops behind, make the perfect backdrop for the photo. I like the way the ribbon is tucked into the cluster and of course, the puppy is the perfect element to accent the layout.
The photos in Splashing by jillybean really take center stage in her layout. I love the way she used the mask and combined it with the smaller framed photos. She limited her palette in order to compliment her outstanding photos and the brush she chose works perfectly here. The bubbles placed on top are just right and the puppy fills the empty space in the corner and directs the eye into the layout.
I can’t complete my post without including this stunning layout, Splash, by Heike. Her extraction is perfection and the way she masked it with the papers and placed everything into the stacked frame is amazing. Check out the way the wave paper peeks out from behind and in front of the frame. Keeping the green flower large balances it perfectly with the cluster placed opposite. Adding the scribble is the perfect final touch.
I hope I have inspired you. Before I sign off I want to be certain you grab the freebie in case you missed the blog post a few days ago.
