Designing with Clique Kits

Today I’m over on the Clique Kit’s Blog sharing how I love to use Picmonaey to create a collage.  Here’s a peek:

Summer Manifesto

Lately I have really wanted to play along with page layouts and I found the perfect inspiration playing along with Studio Calico’s Sunday Sketch:     Summer_Manifesto_JustTyra_marked     The “Summer” die cut is my handwriting. I like how I was able to add that personal touch.  I painted the die cut with several different watercolors to mimic the colors of this beautiful season. Summer_Manifesto_UpClose_JustTyra I think the hardest (and almost impossible) task from my manifesto will be to find a place to take a nap outside.  I don’t have a hammock, I don’t have any vacation plans finalized and I have three tiny tots who are little human magnets. And the mosquitos here are treacherous! I think creating this layout has inspired me to continue to create more layouts and get more photos onto pages. And journal more.  I’m reminded of this article which serves as motivation.  Wish me luck! And consider making your own manifesto as a reminder to slow down and enjoy every single moment. Take care! xo, Tyra
