Beach Days Are Best by SUE CREASE

Beach Days Are Best by SUE CREASE

Today I am sharing another layout for The Mad Scrapper Blog and it shows my cousins adorable girls at the beach on Anglesey this last half term break.
I am joining in with the 49 and Market sketch challenge for July with this and you can find the sketch below along with the products used. Now I have used an older collection of which I know Janine was very busy with and could well be sold out but then you may be like me and have some left in your stash because it was very extensive. I gathered all my possibilities together before I made a start. Is that something you do? I know I generally do but never use it all!
I chose my main paper and decided I wanted to mat it on a pink to pop the colour of the fishing line the girls were using, so I trimmed it down but in a wonky style. I added a selection of rub-ons around the page.
The sketch called for an image off to one side so I took one of the miniature postcards from the ephemera pack and trimmed it down adding some florals and another phrase.
I made this cluster for the bottom right corner including another sweet rub-on.
I matted the photo on to a piece of world map paper in the pink area, tucked a touch of green which I punched with the notebook punch. The pink layer on the right is from the laser cut pack. Another rub-on just above the sentiment is perfect for these two as love nothing better than to check things out together.
This photo shows how everything is loaded on top of each other so plenty of depth. I added pink, amber and glittery blue Nuvo drops around the page to finish things off.
Thanks again for stopping by, I hope I have inspired you to use up some of those extensive kits. Check out the others Janine has available at The Mad Scrapper - if you are lucky and live close by pop in, I know she will be pleased to see you.
