Cool Summer!

Hello and good morning!
I don't know about you but I am ready for summer! Summer to me means water fun, picnics, camping and bike rides! For Mother's Day this year, my kids and husband got me a new bike, which I desperately needed since my old bike had no brakes.
For my layout, I used the Carta Bella Cool Summer Collection and a Let's Get Sketchy sketch. The colors in this collection went perfect with my bike color, PINK!

To tone down the background paper, I added a little gesso around the edges and then added green paint spatters.
Thanks for sharing your day with us!


  1. LOVE how fun this is, the sweet doilies and cool gesso!!!

  2. I love this!! Great job with the paint and gesso!

  3. So cute! Love these colors together - I just picked up the 6x6 pad, can't wait to use it! :)
