Hello 49 and Market fans!

Here is my layout featuring the Vintage Artistry Shore 12×12 collection and the laser cuts, ephemera stack and rub-ons from the same collection.  I changed the colour cast of the photos to sepia to suit this very colourful layout.

For this layout I used the Tritons Shell A and B side (I had two of these) and the sides of the Barrier Reef.

To create the texture on the background I randomly stamped with a bubble stamp.  Next, I primed the background (only the Barrier Reef paper) with clear gesso.  I added a design with a stencil and white crackle texture paste.  Once cracked and dry, I added colour using Distress Oxide in Broken China and Faded Denim.

I layered the matted photos on pieces from the V/A Shore Ephemera stack.  I glued a 4×6 frame from the V/A Essentials File Frame Set to the middle photo.  Here you can see how I used rub-ons on the tabs.

Next, I worked on the three clusters.  The Shore collection included two stunning laser-cut sheets.  I used elements from both sheets with a few different chippies and die cuts.
For the fish and fishnet, I used foam tape for dimension.  I used some of the beautiful rub-on elements as well.

The final touches to this layout included art stones and splatters with diluted white gesso.
