So let me share what I came up with in this 2 page Summer themed spread:


I had these wood chip letters on hand as well as the Tim Holtz metal numbers and wanted to use them in my journal but wasn't sure how.




I added a bunch of Unity Stamp Co stamps to it in the background for the border and images to "represent" summer.




Letter and numbers close ups I stamped on them as well:



I also put together a little slide show showing some of the steps along the way I hope you will check out.
