Maggie Holmes Design Team : Sunkissed

Whenever I received the DT box, I love spending some time to look at all the products and kinda 'study' the products. This particular paper called peachy really caught my attention. I knew I would need to include this fun paper only onto my layout. I really love the bright & lively illustration. And of course, it was my personal challenge to feature the paper solely! Loving the fact that cute photos of my daughter matched the paper well too. 

To begin, I use mint acrylic paint and spread onto the white cardstock. Added splatters of gold mist for the extra color to match. While waiting for the paint to dry,  I cut out strip of papers diagonally to fill the top and bottom of the layout. Then with the help of my precision scissors, I cut the fringe on each strip.  I had to admit all that cutting was pretty therapeutic. Haha. Once that is all done, I adhered the fringe papers down. 

Next, I positioned the photos somewhat in the middle and add layers all around. I carefully chose the colors so everything will look cohesive and blended well. 

I just love this little lady paired with the pretty flora sticker. And some hearts to fill the space. That cute green striped tag is a perfect addition. The color just popped!

Just by adding some textures to your layout, it sure gives your whole layout a very refreshing look! And also by adding the stitches at each strip sure added more texture too! 

That mint paint peeking through the fringe is awesome. It was intentional and I loved the outcome! 

Thanks for joining me today!
