Sitting on the Dock of the Lake

Yes, Alaska has incredible scenery, even just going to a local lake can be breathtaking.  This layout using the Scraps of Darkness June Kit "Seaside" has some wonderful paper collections to capture those special vacation memories.  The photo in this layout is my Grandson Chase, sitting at the dock, taking in all the beauty around him. 

I used the Kaisercraft paper included in the Patterned Paper Add On for my background.  On the left side is a stripe border which I cut from another paper in the same Add On.  At the top is border sticker which comes in the Main Kit.  The layers were created using other papers in the same collection.  Burlap was used to mat the photo.

To add texture, I used the Impasto Paint from the Creativity Add On through a stencil.  Love this new product from Art Alchemy.

I wanted to create a fun collage of flowers and pelican on the left bottom side of the lo.  I applied some cheesecloth in this area.  Then, I fussy cut the pelican and pilings from the 49th and Market paper included in the Patterned Paper Add On.  

I added lots of different elements into the collage that are included in the Elements, Creativity, and Floral Add Ons.  I think the 3-D seaweed embellishment from the Elements Add On from 49th and Market pulls the lo together.  

I used the Prima off white flowers from the Floral Add On at the top of the title as well.   

I used the Blue Fern Studio Anchor chipboard from the Elements Add On at the bottom of the photo, which I embossed with their Antique Gold embossing powder from a previous kit.  I also added Art Stones and gold gems from previous kits to give more texture.    

At the bottom right side of the layout I created another little collage using the same elements as the left side.  

Hope you enjoyed my layout and will visit again.  Kits are available here.  Thanks for looking and hope you have a wonderful day!!!
