By the sea

Hi,
I am not much of a scrapbooker but time by time I enjoy doing layouts! Here's what I came up with recently -



I took my inspiration from the Scrap Around the World April Challenge, here's their fantastic mood board (everything inspired me from it) -


I used Graphic 45 Paper (By The Sea Collection) for the base, like this one. It's so beautifully busy, isn't it!


I did stamping on my layout using these gorgeous stamps by Inkadinkado.


For the stenciling used Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Texture Paste with TCW Stencil and also made a mixture of Sparkle Texture Paste (Egyptian Blue & Ocean Spray), Liquitex Light Modeling Paste and Liquitex Soft Body Teal Acrylic Paint, applied that with a painting knife here and there. Another stenciling with 3D Gloss Gel and Finnabair Chicken Wire Stencil. And then used loads of different Lindys Stamp Gang Ink Sprays and Cosmic Shimmer Mists. Glued some sand what I brought back with me from the beach and a bit of acrylic paint on top. When I was happy with all the background, and after adhering a tulle coloured with Ink Sprays, I sprayed a layer of Krylon Crystal Clear Acrylic Coat on top of all the paper. And then added all the embellishments & elements to bring it to 'life'!!

Here are some close-ups too:




Amazing jellyfish! We spotted it and some others while having a walk on the beach!:)




I gessoed the Finnabair Metal Flowers, then some touches of Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Texture Paste and Shimmer Mist. And Crystal Clear Acrylic Coating for the protective layer!
