Fancy This: Beach Beauty layout

Happy August! For today's Fancy This, I wanted to share a layout I created as a companion to my Hello Sumer layout I posted, for the Beach Bum Design Embellishments Product Spotlight, a couple weeks ago. I have two shadowboxes in my dining room that I love to change out for the seasons. I placed my Hello Summer layout in one of the shadowboxes, but it needed a mate. So, I created the layout I am sharing with you today. Now, I have one for each of my daughters and some great summer decor!BeachBeauty

Fancy Pants supplies:
Beach Bum: Marina patterned paper
Beach Bum: Rub-ons
Beach Bum: Printed Transparency
Beach Babe: Glitter Cuts
Artist Edition: Memo Notebook
Artist Edition: Filter Embellishments (Pinking Edge)
Baby Mine: Chipboard Alphas

Other supplies:
acrylic paint

I want to share a couple techniques with you...

First, I wasn't pleased with the distracting background of my main photo (who's leg is that?).

... So, using a little acrylic paint, I painted out the background! I love the artsy look it gives the photo!


Second, I wanted to show you how to make the filter fan on my layout. I spattered some watered down acrylic paint on mine and then cut a slit in one side (from edge to center). I then, folded small pleats into the filter.

Then I gathered the pleats together...

... and pinched the bottom to create a fan.

Tie a little bit of twine to hold it and wha-la!


And here is a photo of my shadowboxes. :-)

I loved sharing with you today! Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to come back tomorrow. We'll have a little tour of our CHA booth to show you and ... a giveaway!
