The Beach Life

Good morning...

There is nothing like the feel of sand between your toes....

Nicole and Lisa capture that feeling with two gorgeous layouts using the Scraps Of Elegance 'By The Sea' kit



Whenever Nicole works with stickers, she often layers the back with cardstock so that she can pop them up with 3D foam squares for added dimension, as she did here.  



She used a mixture of embossing powders and glitter, some from the kit, some from her stash, on these awesome Blue Fern Studios chipboard pieces.



Lisa's turn to take a dip.....




Lisa said that there is nothing is prettier than using real sea shells in a beachy layout. The
larger ones came with the kit and the tiny ones from her stash, that she attached using some clear gel medium.
 
 
  Lisa wanted to really emphasize the blues and purples in this paper and also in my photograph so she applied a thick uneven coat of heavy white gesso to the background and then used her watercolors to add some pops of color.
 
 
 
 Thanks for stopping by!
