UmWowStudio and Susan K. Weckesser Blog Hop!

Hi everyone,

If you haven't heard yet UmWowStudio and Susan K. Weckesser are having a summer blog hop this week!

It's day two and I'm up with my page :)

It was so easy to work with the Susan K. Weckesser papers and stamps. The bright beautiful colors were seriously perfect for so many of my kid photos!  I used the papers from the Live in Color collection. And they went so well with the UmWowStudio chipboard shapes and flair!

I got my title for the page from UWS This Day Hashtag Banners. It held just the right sentiment for that photo, don't you think? I left this chippie raw and just covered the back with yellow paper.

The Chevron Confetti make such good pointers to emphasize bits and pieces on your paper. I covered mine up with gesso and dimensional paints and had the larger green chevron point towards the word "happy" (which I made with the cameo and my own script brushwork) and had the smaller yellow chevron point to the photo.

I cut out circles from SKW's paper and of course I had to add some fun flair! UWS Wood Textures flair set have these cool backgrounds that you can use by itself for splashes of yellow, teal, or grey...or you can alter them. I altered the flair with a stamp from the ABC. 123. Washi set from SKW & Unity.

Oh and I realize it's tough to see but I used the UWS Checker Board Mask in the background with Super Heavy Gloss Gel medium for more texture!

Hope that added a little happy to your day! Check back in with UmWowStudio everyday this week to see all the awesome projects the design teams have made and get the chance to win one of TWO prizes!
