Christiane- Take a Break **LUXE**

We're going to start something a little different on the Daily Inspiration blog. Starting today, we will be doing manufacturer spotlights with layouts and projects primarily based around their products. So without further ado, for the next couple of weeks we will be spotlighting Luxe Designs. Luxe is known for their simple, modern designs mixed in with cutting edge graphics. They offer products ranging from wonderfully matched paper lines to doodle inspired clear stamps.

Do you love Luxe too? Leave us a link in our comments to your project by the 15th of July and your work could be featured on this blog for everyone to see. Now on to the projects! Today, Christiane starts our spotlight with an altered clipboard featuring the new paper line from Luxe, "Flip Flop."

"Take a Break"
by Christiane Müller

Clipboard - Creative Imaginations
PP - Luxe Designs- Flip Flop "Tetherball," "Slide." Simply Luxe in cobalt blue.
Acrylic Paint - Making Memories
Pearl Finish & Glitter - Making Memories
Stamp - Unknown
Cling Film
Masking Tape

First, take 2 sheets of the Simply Luxe in cobalt blue (the opposite side is a reverse print in white) and cut into 6"x12". Cut the borders from the white side with a fancy edge and mat it on the blue side of the paper.
The two brackets, waves, and shells act as a frame for the photo and is all hand cut from Luxe papers.
Weave the cling film through the waves.
The letters are from cardstock and have masking tape on top. The tape is then colored with acrylic paint, pearl finish and glitter.
The cute little star is a present from the Weight Watchers program. ;)
