Hello! Today, I have a fun summer layout to share with you. I LOVE watermelon and it is always a favorite at any family gathering in the summer.Last weekend our family got together to celebrate my grandpa's 81st birthday! My grandpa loves watermelon too so we had birthday cake and fresh cut watermelon. The kids were really enjoying the watermelon--lol! I was snapping a few pictures and got this cute one of my cousin's little girl, Lilly. I just had to create a layout! ;-) To make the watermelon die cuts I used S4-276 Sweet Treats die templates from Spellbinders™. I started out with white paper and did the Reverse Stencil technique with pink and green ink to add the color to the paper. To do Reverse Stenciling ink the inside of the die template and then cut/emboss as usual. Then I left the paper in the die template and used black ink to stencil the watermelon seeds. To create the bite in the watermelon I used S4-115 Petite Scalloped Circles Large. I also popped up the middle slice using 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L™.To create the watermelon border I used the New E8-001 Classic Scallop Edgeabilities. I started with white paper, inked the scallops with green ink and cut another strip using just the scallop die template. Then I used a black marker to add the seeds. I also added some 72 Count Black Pearls from Want2Scrap™ in the corners.For the title I used LF-003 Donna's Alphas from Spellbinders™. I used pink and black paper and offset the paper to create a shadow effect. I also took a little bite out of the U using S4-115 Petite Scalloped Circles Large and then I popped up the letters with 3D Foam Squares.
