Hello - hope you are all well. I have a few more pieces of inspiration to share using my May DT Kit for The Scrapbook Store. I've been working with Carta Bella - the Beach Boardwalk collection - and have really been enjoying using the papers in this collection. They have brought a bit of Summer memories back ☺
Here is the first page:
Here are some close-up's:
The Scrapbook Store - Nautical Design - it's such a great piece - I've dabbed some gesso over the top - just giving it a light, rough covering and then once dry, added some ink to the edges and a bit of stamping too - love how it's come up ☺
You will also notice some texture paste in the background - I use Texture Magic - I use this quite a lot on my pages and I love how it's gives some interest to the page without taking away from the photo's. Don't be afraid to use it over your photo's too!!
The lovely big blooms are from Prima!!
muslin, texture paste, beach shells and twine to give it that 'coastal feel'. The pattern papers which I've layered under the photo's are all in the Beach Boardwalk collection!
12x12 Alpha Stickers. You will notice I use my black pen a lot as well as my script stamp with ink. For me, this gives the finishing touches to a page and I love how it adds texture without the bulk.
Here I have another page that I completed on the weekend. I was lucky enough to be able to go to The Scrapbook Store Camp with a friend. It was lovely to meet up with Suzanne and Marelize once again and also meet the lovely Kim Price who is also on the Design Team for The Scrapbook Store. It was a fun, creative weekend and very relaxing too. It's always nice to have that break from normal routines and get away to do something creative.
natural hemp twine.
The piece of chipboard is from the Word Bubbles pack - 2 Crafty Chipboard.
Once again, some more texture paste with chevron punch-out's using the pattern papers and a photo corner punch which I have had in my collection.
So I hope you have been inspired by this collection!! As you have seen, it works great for your beach or holiday snaps, but the pattern papers would be suitable for any theme of scrapbooking. Please check out the collection at The Scrapbook Store online ☺
Thank you for joining me this month - I'll be back soon with some other scrapbooking that I've done recently including a little peek at my Project Life album ☺
