Hello 49 and Market fans!

I am really loving these new collections – Seaside and Shipwrecked – so much so I have created another project with these beautiful collections. I have created a 12×12 layout.

I have started first with the Seaside “Beachfront” paper and cutting this down, and adhering to the reverse side of the Seaside “Seaside Cottage” paper. I have cut the bar strips off the “Seaside Cottage” paper – using a second paper for the second strip which I have adhered to the cut edges of the Seaside “Beachfront” paper.

I then started layering pieces from the Laser Cut sheet from the Seaside Mini Collection. I will adhere a piece of foam tape to the top of each piece, and glue on the bottom, and then add the layers doing the same – foam at the top and glue on the bottom and work my way up.

All the shells I have curled to give them some dimension before sticking them down. I have used some pieces from the “Never Stop Exploring” Archival Chipboard. These were coloured in Creative Expressions Gilding polish as well as acrylic paints.

I have also used some of the Wishing Bubbles to finish off, as well as adding some art stones (the knot at the bottom of the page is from the Island Paradise collection).

Products I Used:

Seaside Laser Cut Outs
Seaside - Seaside Cottage
Seaside – Seaside Cottage

Seaside - Beachfront
Seaside – Beachfront
Wishing Bubbles – Crush
