Once I adhered the turtle to my page, I added a bit of Gesso and some water color paint effect using the Peacock Feathers Distress Crayon, to create a bit of movement and represent the water that you might find one of these guys in.
I also pierced holes and stitched around the outer edge of the turtle, using some embroidery floss from my stash.
I cut a few clouds out of cardstock for a previous layout and had one left which I added to this page after wrapping it with the Washi tape from the kit. I love that this adds another fun pattern to my page!
The sun was fussy cut from one of the Elle's Studio cut outs. I also used a couple of the Elle's Studio labels behind my photo after punching along the edge with a notebook punch.
I used a Jillibean Soup "soup label" and the Amy Tangerine alphas to create my title, adding some stitching just for fun after adhering them to my page.
For a finishing touch, I added lots of puffy stickers and a few chipboard pieces to my layout. And then added in some orange splatters created with a second Distress Crayon.
I had so much fun with the Summer Lovin' Classic Kit and am so looking forward to playing with the August kit
