This week I am using the gorgeous Tailgate Marked collection to make a beachy layout with a subtle red white and blue theme in honor of the country of my birth!! I live in Ireland but I grew up in the United States!
I just love using shells on my beachy layouts, so I have added many here. I have also used some cut out tags and the "Be Happy" title from the Huntington Gardens collection... To add some depth and layers to my layout I added some stripy ribbon and some white ribbon mesh.
For my background work I added some misting, splashes and some masking using gorgeous Gritty Graphite Shimmerz Texturez. I tucked in some Prima and Petaloo flowers to add some color to my layout.
Here you can see some of the clustering and background work I did. Finally, I added some twine across the layout for a finishing detail. I really hope you like my summery layout!!!
