|completed layout using quadrants, squares and Owl Tree Studio kit|
For this layout I began by choosing four of the papers from Owl Tree Studio's Beach Breeze digital kit and then I layered on the wave image with different degrees of transparency. I knew I wanted to create a grid effect and that my layout was about the sun always shining (at least metaphorically) so I used the sun embellishment to create movement and a grid. I then printed it out and mounted it onto the card for the journal.

I then printed and cut out my photos and stuck them on. Using inspiration from the kit I added yellow buttons on top. I then created a mini journalling booklet using the labels from the kit, cut them out and layered up with brads. I used the cloud, a sun and journalling for title and again printed and cut out.
|I felt the layout was still lacking something so I used Sakura jelly roll pens to draw round the suns and to highlight the waves, taking it onto card below.|
|Finally I added some dolphin and starfish charms that I have had in my stash forever.|
|I printed out and then cut up and inked a title for the tag, adding the beach umbrella|
