Zany for Zing!
If you know me at all, you know my current obsession is Zing Embossing Powder. I love all the gorgeous colors and the fun dimension it adds to a layout. When I saw the Crate Paper's Carousel, I knew I wanted to jazz it up a little with Zing. I simply traced the lines of the chevron pattern with my Zig Emboss Writer and used 11 colors of Zing (my personal record on a layout!) to match the colors on the paper.
I cut the words from Crate Paper's Splash to border the chevron paper. I then machine-stitched to add some texture & interest to the layout. It still needed a little something, so I used Cocoa Daisy's Confetti stamp and Zing (Butter) to create a subtle background for the layout. This layout is special to me because I used to love eating watermelon with my mom, out by our pool - the tradition continues! ♥
