June 4 x 4!

I’m back again this month with a new 4 x 4: four designers using the same four products! This month we used the following products from Sassafras Lass, Echo Park, and Maya Road:

r-138789l-138799r-138493C1692-MiniChipboardCameosSet

The 4 x 4 Rules:
- We must use the same four products: two papers and two embellishments.
- We can only use one of each sheet of paper.
- We can use unlimited basics (card stock, ribbon, alphas, mists, etc.) as long as the four main products are the focus.
- We cannot share our finished pages with each other until we are all done so that we do not influence each others’ design choices.

And here is my page using these products:

Beach Bum

I used the more warm, neutral side of the Sass paper as a base and framed the page with watered down white paint, drops of gold mist, and stitching. I decided to leave the woman off of the cameo to better fit my boy page. Instead I covered the chipboard with paper and stickers and then added a layer of dimensional Glossy Accents.

Beach Bum - detail

I chose pops of black to accent this page, including the title and the wrapped embroidery floss at the bottom. I love this mix of summer colors!

This page is also a part of the latest "Make a Splash" theme challenge over at Paper Issues! Y'all should come on over to play!

Meg Aaron is hosting the challenge and prize this month and you are definitely going to want to visit her blog to get all the details and to see the other layouts created with this month’s products! And don’t forget to visit the blogs of this month’s other two participants: Christina Colón and Rachel Theall!

Thanks for joining us for another 4 x 4!
