cool fun in the summer time

Hey, hope your week is going well.
I got my kit from Handmade by Suzanne the other day - very happy about getting papers from Echo Park - Paradise Beach collection as well as some other goodies  Perfect for those Summer photo's.
I've already been digging into it and made my first LO:


 I've used one of the pattern papers as my background and gave it some modelling paste and mist 'treatment'. (think I may have added just a bit too much though)  Love using the CW templates for this!!
Here are some close-up's:
 Here I've used some sea shells, paper blooms and some of the Zva Creative crystals - I've also made use of my MS punch - daisy fan.
 Here I've used a Kaisercraft wooden flourish - this one is the Sea Grass - I've firstly painted it all white, then sprayed mist over the top, allowing some of the white to show thru.  Then I've sponged the edges in espresso ink.  You will notice that I ink just about everything ☺☺  Have added in some more flowers:  Kaisercraft and some Primmers in Bleached White from Prima 
My title uses letters from the Alpha Sticker sheet - I've outlined them in brown pen.

I'm loving all the orange in the page and I totally adore this paper range - Suzanne has this collection in store, though it's selling fast!! Can't wait to show you more including some ideas for the Kaisercraft wooden flourishes ☺
Thanks for coming by.

Oh wow ... I've just finished doing a few works for Anna's with this paper range. It isn't one I would have chosen, but I loved working with it. And you have shown me a new way to use the papers. Gorgeous as usual, love the snap!
