By the Sea

I created this layout for the July Challenge at Creative Embellishments, where it’s all about Blues with a twist to use clouds or waves.

This was a perfect opportunity to finally scrap one of the photos while on a cruise with stops in Aruba, Curaçao and Bonaire last April. I decided on both clouds and waves for the twist, using this view of the coast of Bonaire.

After coating both sides of my paper with clear gesso, I used a Creative Embellishments stencil and white crackle paste to create some texture around the page.
As this was setting, I selected a few chipboard shells from Creative Embellishments and hit them with a coating of mist.

I backed my photo with a piece of packaging to give it dimension and stability and glued it to the page, tucking several small pieces of cheesecloth here and there around the sides.

I decided to leave the Nautical Corner chipboard bare to blend in with the bottom of my photo. I cut it in half and placed the larger piece to the bottom of the image. The remaining piece was glued underneath, creating a dangle.

My shells were now dry. I wanted them to be a little whiter, so I used my applicator to coat them with Distress Ink before placing them around the photo.

I placed a few blooms and several flat back pearls (a gift from my Swap Buddy Dawna) to the “wheel” part of the chipboard.
Next, I glued down a bit of flair (also from Creative Embellishments) to use as my title piece.

To finish my page, I scattered a few Mélange pebbles around the page.
