Sunny Days - double page spread

Here are instructions for this summer sunny page - it's masculine, but with cheery punches of orange and just a bit of ribbon and buttons to bling it up.


Background- 2 blue 12x12" sheets
Striped trim- 2 strips 3"x12"
Brown frame- 10.5x8" on left and 5.5x8" on right
Blue frame- 5x6.75"
Tan frames- 3 @ 4.25x6.25" and 1 @ 4.25x5.75"
Circles- Orange 4", 6.75", 2.5" Brown 2.25", 2.25"
Embelishments- title (sunnydays) 1"x5", ribbon scraps, sun sticker (1.5" circle), buttons, chipboard flourish (approx 4" tall)

Start by distressing - I used Tim Holtz Ink - Tea Dye color - for all the tan, brown and blue frames as well as the circles. The orange glitter paper doesn't take ink well, so I skipped those and skipped the 12x12" sheets as well. The striped paper came with an edge that has a sanded look, so that paper was ready to go.

Adhere stripe border, circles, brown frames, blue frame and tan frames. Lastly adhere stickers, title, etc. Adhere buttons and ribbon with Zots™ or other stronger adhesive.
