I created my layout using the new Heidi Swapp Art Walk line - I used the 6x8 paper pad and a few stickers from the cardstock sticker sheet.

I wanted to do a modern take on a grid design, but with a shape other than squares. I chose chevrons and used my Cricut to cut out 9 chevrons from different patterned papers from the 6x8 pad. I love the smaller patterns offered in the 6 inch paper pads, as they lend well to small designs. They're great for pocket pages too!

I distressed the edges on each chevron and sewed them down. I used a few of the chevron scraps to die cut some palm fronds with my Big Shot.

I used white acrylic paint, watered down, to create the white splatters.

I first tried to use some Thickers as a title, but decided I wanted to keep it bright and white. So I used some of the 6x8 Heidi Swapp paper to cut the word "Palmettos" from my Cricut. I used a free font, isolated the letters, and welded them together.

The rest of the title is cut from the Concord & 9th Double Cut Alpha Dies - always a favorite of mine!

This is literally one of my favorite photos I've ever taken in my life. So it was actually a lot of pressure to scrap it well! I am happy with the outcome, however.

To accompany my tropical layout, these die cut ephemera pieces from Kaisercraft's Paradise Found were absolutely perfect!

I love to mix and match among collections, and this Kaisercraft color scheme works perfectly with Heidi's Art Walk.

I finished the page with clear dew drop enamel bits and fluffed the chevron edges!

I hope you've been inspired to grab a 6x6 or 6x8 paper pad and create! Make sure to hop along to Sara's blog next, and leave comments on all blogs to enter to win the prizes.

Thanks so much to Simple Stories and A Cherry on Top for sponsoring this amazing weekend of giveaways!

There are also tons of prizes in the A Cherry on Top message board and in our Facebook group!
