Two Girls by Sandy

While we experiencing a heatwave in Singapore, I decided to scrap a beach photo - one that's actually taken quite a while ago. In the background is a teal paper with tiny white dots which reminds me of the sea. Down at the bottom, anchoring everything, is a woodgrain to minic the planks on the pier.   

The design element I love most is the hexagon pattern created by fussy-cutting the lattice from MME's Honey Blue paper. In order to focus the colour scheme I chose only hexagons in blue, brown or cream (with a hint of rose thrown in as an accent).

Playing on the word 'TWO' in my title, I used two each of the small embellishments : two butterflies, two flowers and two stick pin flags. To make those flags I cut up little pennants from the card that was added in my kit to promote the upcoming Yearbook collection from Sutdio Calico.

Although by nature a straight line and right-angles sort of scrapper, I enjoy the opportunity to add a little messy to my layout with this randomly pleated border. Hope you are enjoying the June kits and getting lots of projects done with it. 

cheers, Sandy
