Thinking About Summer...

Thinking about summer over here means getting horses ready to show and onto the fairgrounds.  So, that made this week the perfect time to share this layout of my grand-girl and our miniature horse Charlie!  I chose to color up Horse Riding Digital Stamp (which can also be found in the Work and Play 6 Collection), make flowers from the Work and Play 12 (Science/Geek, etc), and use Quotes, Papers and Ephemera from Winnie in Wonderland.

I started by placing the Riding Digi and Dream quote on the beautiful floral paper in my Mac Notes program.  I printed that 12 x12 sheet.  I removed the digi and printed one more 12x12 sheet of paper including the quote.  I flipped that sheet and printed another floral pattern on the back of it for use later.

On a separate sheet I printed the small cards (Ephemera) including the quote.  

I cut the Dream quote from the paper and used the remainder of the paper to cut flowers from the SVG flower cuts in the Work & Play 12.  This is why I printed the back of this sheet; now the parts of the flowers sticking up has a print on it.

The digi is colored with Copics.  I distressed the edges and tore out the edge.  I placed some of the back side of the paper (I had printed for the flowers and quote) under the torn out section.
