Lazy Sundays | Endless Summer layout | Sue Plumb

Hi everyone!

Sue Plumb here today to share another layout using the Endless Summer collection with you. This page features a recent photo of one of my sons that was taken as we enjoyed a BBQ by the beach on a Sunday afternoon. (Don’t you love those lazy Sundays?)

I started with the super cute Blue Skies paper as my base, which I used to create a frame by adhering a smaller square of white cardstock on top of it. I then added some watercolour paint, as well as some subtle stamping, where I knew the main focal area of my layout was going to be.

Next, I added a piece of the Coastal Chill paper, which I simply tore into a rough water drop shape (we were at the beach), rather than using a straight edge or geometric shape. I also cut some of the Aloha Sunshine paper as a mat for my photo, which I layered with a paper doily and then placed on top. I then fussy cut a few flowers from the Aloha Sunshine paper, which I tucked in under some of the edges of my torn piece. (There is always room for a few flowers on a boy layout!)

I really wanted to convey the theme of my page (and the memory) with my title, so I chose to use a longer, descriptive title. I used a mixture of tiny alphas (from a previous collection), ephemera pieces, alpha stickers, a word from the This & That cut apart paper and a puffy sticker to form “gotta love awesome lazy sundays”.

To embellish my layout, I used a mixture of ephemera pieces, several woodies, and puffy stickers. I layered the elements using foam tape and by placing them on top of each other to provide extra dimension. I used a mix of warm and cool tones in my embellishments, to echo the presence of the both the warm and cool tones in my photo. (You can see how I clustered the warm and cool mostly together though, to help maintain visual balance.) I also added some white cotton thread for subtle texture.

Thanks for stopping by today. I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your families a very merry Christmas and a happy and safe new year! See you in 2017! X

About the Author:

Sue is a stay at home mum of 3 (daughter Brielle, and twin sons Hunter and Kaden) and lives in the beautiful Glasshouse Mountains in Queensland. She began scrapping in 2008, shortly after her daughter was born. After the premature birth of her sons in 2012, she took 18 months off scrapping to concentrate on family and since her return says she is enjoying it more than ever. (Her biggest issue now is finding quiet time!) She currently designs for challenge blogs, and has had work published in magazines on numerous occasions, including the cover. She is also a 2017 Scrapbooking Memories magazine Creative Team member. Although primarily a 12×12 scrapper, she says she loves to dabble a bit with pocket style scrapping, art journaling, and the odd canvas and card too. She best describes her style as "versatile" - ranging from clean and linear one day, to messy mixed media the next.
