Swim the Day Away

Hello and good morning..

I'm up over on the GCD Studios blog, sharing a fun summer page with you. And if your like me, you are MORE than ready for warm, summery days to come back, and take some time to get out and play in the pool. I created this layout, using the lovely Indian Summer collection. I am totally drawn to the color pallet in this line, lately it's been one of my favorites.

I created a fun pool page of my daughter swimming.. If it's one thing my kids love to do in the summer, it's to go swimming!!! I can barely get them out of the water, whether at the pool or beach.
When creating this layout, the chevron paper jumped out at me, and I decided to not only use that as my main pattern, but to also create a chevron pattern, mixing and matching the other papers.

First I measured and cut 3/4" long strips of paper, and then cut 1 1/2" strips to create my chevron pattern.
also inserted triangles to fill in the top of the chevrons, to keep the pattern flowing through the top of the page:
I added machine sewing on the pattern and through out the layout:
I continued the triangle pattern and added a few of them at the bottom of the page:
So make those patterns work for you on your page.

Have a wonderful day.
Supplies:
Paper: Indian Summer- Modern Chevron, Fancy, Holland, Zig Zag.

Other: Cardstock, Alphas, Mist, Bling and Machine Stitching.
