 I took a simple photo of bathing suits all lined up in the bathroom on a vacation I took with my bridesmaids last year.  This photo has so many memories to me and that's why I decided to scrap it.  Since our suits were so bright and colorful I decided to bring that into my page.  I used plenty of watercolors and gelatos in fun bright colors for this layout...

A detail shot of the full layout.  I added die cut plant leaves from the Silhouette online store and watercolored them to my heart's content.  Have I mentioned how much I love watercolors??  I used a simple white background but added another pop of color with Heidi Swapp color pop paper.

I love how those glitter gold thickers just shine in the light, awesome!

Another view of the dimension created with the die cut leaves and all the feather and star embellishments.  I used Gesso on top of the chipboard feathers so they would have a more saturated color.  I then used gelatos to color each one in different shades.  So much fun, you have to try watercolors and gelatos if you haven't yet. 

Thanks for following along <3
