Hello and welcome. Tina O back with you today.
My newest creation, “Picture Perfect” has been designed using the gorgeous Denim and Friends collection. This is such a versatile collection that I decided to do a beachside layout. My favourite thing to create, as we live in one of the most beautiful beach inspired places in the world ! Much of our spare time and holidays are spent at the beachside, therefore I have an endless supply of photographs from these memorable moments.
I have kept my layout very simple using a smaller sized portrait colour photo of my youngest daughter at the beach getting very very muddy. I caught her unawares as you can see from the photo. Denim and Friends has many gorgeously stunning pages that would work perfectly for a beachside background page. Today I decided to use the bs of Fashion to start my layout. I primed it with gesso and did some stenciling using the Dusty Attic Confetti stencil with crackle texture paste. Once it dried a did some colouring with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink and water.
I did lots of layering of chipboards (Dusty Attic) to create a design to work a photo into. These chipboards were dressed in Rust Pastes, Gesso, Distress Inks and Nuvo Embellishment Mousse.
I made some acetate embellishments using 49andMarket’s Sand and Sea stamp set. Other embellishments included a lace motif and beautiful 49andMarket Sea Side Blooms in Sea Breeze colour.
I wanted to emulate the mud that my daughter was digging in. To do this I have used fibres coloured with rust pastes. I dried these and gave them a coating of gesso and then randomly wiped over with Rust Pastes. I also adhered over the fibres with some Art Stones with 3D Gloss Gel. And then coloured them using some Nuvo Mousse.
Well that is all from me today. I hope you have enjoyed your visit here today.
Until next time happy scrapping. x
