"Enjoy The Sunshine" is exactly that. I had so much fun just sitting down and playing.
This is what I did:
On this layout, I was keen to try out my new Dusty Attic "Waves" Stencil, so I used some Colour Blast Colour Paste in Snow to apply the "waves" to the Pion Design "Shoreline Treasures" paper. I really wanted to create a foamy "white cap" look. You can get the Dusty Attic "Waves" stencil and the Colour Blast Colour Paste from Studio M Designs here.
I completed the background by using a Prima stencil and stencilling some "bubbles" onto the background with some texture paste mixed with Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals. Then I splattered the background with some Lindy's Stamp Gang mist in Sandra Dee Sepia and Aloha Avocado. Then I blended some blue into the background with some watercolours - just to give the layout a watery "under the sea" look.
I also wanted to use a Dusty Attic "Fishnet" chipboard piece. All I did with that was stamp some embossing glue on it, and embossed it with some Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powder. I was really trying to blend in the background colours of the paper, and give a "fish net" look to the paper.
Other Dusty Attic chipboard - the Shells and Seahorses - where painted in ombre tones. To achieve this, I painted the base of the chipboard in the darkest shade, then kept adding white and blending it in as I went higher. I finished the chipboard off by sprinkling some glitter on to it.
Here are some close ups:
I cut some diecuts with the Kaisercraft "Seagrass" die and painted the white yardstick in greens to blend into the layout. I put the whole layout together with some flowers, and some Prima Glass Glitter.
Hope you enjoy your week folks, thank you for stopping by my blog
