Scrapping large photos!

Good day everyone!  Today I am showing off Pink Paislee's fabulous Solstice collection!  The Solstice collection is perfect for all of your summertime photos no matter how small- or large- they are!   On this layout I took a single photo of our city’s lighthouse at sunset and made it the dominant image on the page.   I completed the layout with pieces from the fabulous Solstice collection and I love the way it turned out!  To get a FREE downloadable instruction sheet on how to make this layout, hop on over to the Pink Paislee blog!
To get this fun look, I started with the Kauai patterned paper. I used the front side with the cool design.
I trimmed the star burst design from the paper  and added more panels of patterned paper to it.  To do this,  I simply used my ruler and a pencil to make lines of where I wanted to insert the panels.
I then carefully hand trimmed out sections and backed those sections with my favorite patterned papers from the Solstice collection!   I now have a detailed  star burst design!   For added texture, I machine stitched over the star burst design.
I finished the star burst design off with some lovely ephemera bits, gold foam shapes, and puffy stickers!  I just adore the look that the gold pieces add to this collection.
The teal glitter on some of the ephemera pieces and the glitter alphabet from this collection make my heart go pitter patter!  It seriously is the perfect shade of teal!  And who doesn’t love glittered seahorses?
Thanks for stopping in! And don't forget to download the FREE instruction sheet for this layout right HERE!  Have a great day everyone!
Hugs, Tegan
