Summer time just screams for fun layouts at the beach!! In keeping with the tradition, Scraps of Darkness' June Kit "Seaside" is perfect for all those wonderful times at the coast. Even though Alaska has more coastline than the "Lower 48" in geographical miles, it is not sandy, nor warm. All of the beaches are silty from the glacier fun off and very rocky, not to mention COLD water. So, if you want to go swimming you can take a dip in one of our many local lakes, but they are not necessarily warm either LOL! My layout this week is a series of pictures of my Grandson's at South Rolly Lake just north of Anchorage. They had such a good time that day.
For the background paper I chose a whimsical paper from 49th and Market included in the Main Kit. I used Gabi's Line Stitch stamp from 49th and Market at the top, and across the middle. This stamp came in a previous kit and is so versatile.
I found a new LOVE...the Art Alchemy Impasto Paint included in the Creativity Add On works so perfectly for stenciling. You can see where I used it on the background. Try it, you will not be sorry with your results.
I added some fun bubble die cuts using a Memory Box die, which I think worked great for the layout. You can also see the Prills I used all over the layout which comes in the Creativity Add On. You can also see the bubble sticker embellishments from 49th and Market that comes in the Elements Add On.
Next I used a wonky arrow circle chipboard from Creative Embellishments from my stash. I used the Art Alchemy Coral Reef paint from the Color Add On. What a fun, perfect color.
Underneath the chipboard at the bottom I tucked in some cheesecloth that I sprayed with Prima's Bloom "Peony". It matches the color on the chipboard exactly. Then I went wild with glass glitter, Prills and more 49th and Market bubbles. What fun!!!!!
I created a couple flower clusters using 49th and Market blooms from the Floral and Creativity Add Ons. Just adore those flowers. Course I topped them off with more Prills.
In the middle of the circle to the left I added that adorable seahorse, from the same 49th and Market embellishment series. You can see the cute little jellyfish I used in the right flower cluster.
I hope you enjoyed my description of this fun, wild layout. Be sure to check out our store for kits and other goodies here.
Till next time...
