Is it too early to start scrapping sunny beach photos?
I am desperate for some warm sunshine and scrapping this photo was just what I needed to bring a little sunshine into my day.
For this page I used mainly the February add-on kit and the blue cardstock called Lagoon from the main kit.
I started off with fussy cutting those gorgeous orangy coral flowers (not sure if that is the correct name for them) from the Trip to the Island paper 4. I distressed the edges of the fussy cut flowers using my scissors (this was a first for me as I normally use my distressing tool but it didn't reach into the corners well and I was worried I was going to tear the flowers)
And, I decided to go with a pattern paper background which is really not something I do often but the blue and orange colour looked gorgeous together and totally suited my photo. The background pattern paper is the Trip to the Island paper 2 from the add-on kit.
I chose seagulls and seashells to add to my page. They are from The Dusty Attic range and are available from The Mad Scrapper. I gave them a coat of gesso. Once the seagulls were dry I painted them with white acrylic paint from my stash.
The seashells I coloured lightly using my distress oxides which are available from The Mad Scrapper.
I used a larger photo for this page, which is a first for me. I backed it with white tissue paper and then the Lagoon cardstock from the main kit. I distressed the cardstock using my distressing tool and popped it up using sticky back foam.
I added some cotton thread for interest and backed the alphas from the add-on kit onto white cardstock and then cut them out. I also added sticky back foam to the title. I like how the teal blue alphas pop off the page with the white backing.
This page is definitely one for my wall.
Happy scrapping xx
