Liverpool Layout by SUE CREASE


Well here I am with my first post as a Design Team member over at The Mad Scrapper. I am so excited to be here & thank you to Janine for the opportunity. 

My first project is a layout and it uses photos from a lovely day out in Liverpool last September. We crossed the Mersey on the ferry and when we got off we came across the iconic statue of The Beatles! I couldn't resist having my photo taken with them.

Other photos share images of the day such as our lunch, Steak and Cheese melted sandwiches eaten in one of the dock side cafés, the Liver Building and of course a view as we crossed on the ferry (yes we did sing the song lol). The last shows rows of padlocks attached to the chains around the waters edge, there were thousands.

Now on to the layout. I will list all supplies and links to the shop at the bottom of this post.

I started with a 12x12 sheet of pink card from my stash and inked the edges with the new Kitsch Flamingo distress ink. Then I cut down to 11 1/4 the Heritage Harbour paper by Maja Design, covering it with clear gesso, once dry using the Tapestry stencil by Finnabair I passed through some texture paste which I'd coloured with the Flamingo ink. Once dry I distressed the edges.

Now time to add everything else. Starting with a very old piece of vellum with music notes, I tore a square and on to that went 2 photos. Then I added the painted chain circle which pulls in the lock photo and all the others together. Once I was happy with their placements I added the flowers some of which I made myself using the foam instore and others from 49 and Market and the single daisies (which are available in a plethora of colours). I also dotted about pearls and black enamel dots.

I hope you like this as much as I did producing it. You can see more of my makes on my Instagram page  @paperpleasures or over on my Blog Paper Pleasure.   I will be sharing other things using products from The Mad Scrapper Store so I look forward to seeing you there.

Till next time take care,
