Emma- A Great British Summer **LUXE**

Today's layout is a doodler's dream. Emma worked Luxe's new line "Capris." Notice how she hand cut the papers to mimick the flow of wind. Swirly doodles and cut leaves incorporate the windy day theme further.



"A Great British Summer"

SUPPLIES
Patterned papers: Luxe Designs- Capris "Simple Dot Lime," "Parsley," "Rosemary," "Cilantro," "Oregano," "Simple Calico Lime," "Basil," "Chives."
Luxe Designs overlay- Transparently Yours, "Swirly corner."
Alphas: Luxe Designs- Simple Alpha Stickers Lime, Making Memories (tiny alpha)
Journaling Sticker – Luxe Designs, Simple Labels Lime.
Luxe Designs epoxy stickers.
Luxe Designs simple Jotters
Cardstock- Bazzill, white.
Corner rounder, foam pads and journaling pen
HOW TO
Using cardstock as a base, glue a rectangle of "Cilantro" to the top left. Add a rectangle of "Oregano" paper to the centre, a white grid square from the jotters sheet and a rectangle of "Calico" on top of this. Also a rectangle of "Dot Lime" toward the bottom left. Cut a section of the "Parsley" wave following the design. Add your photos to the layout placing the "Parsley" paper underneath.
Draw a ‘wind blown’ tree from the "Rosemary" paper and a ‘blowing cloud’ and swirls from the "Calico" paper. Add to layout along with the finer swirls from the overlay and leaves cut from the "Basil" paper. Add epoxy circle stickers and circles cut from the "Chives" paper along the bottom.
Finish with a journaling sticker and a title using the Lime stickers and tiny alpha stickers.
