Hello, 49 and Market fans!
Thanks for heading on to the blog today to read about how I created this layout. I’ve always loved this kind of magical photos. They are vibrant in color, dynamic, and fresh. So, when Farah Manley (the photographer) told me that I had permission to use it, I was full of joy!

Most of you tell me that you are afraid of using photos with such colors because you are not used to play with them. That’s why I recommend sticking to the photo’s tones, this is just two or three colors maximum. In this example, you see I’ve stuck to blue-teal, purple-pink, and white. As it is a maritime theme layout, I just used some tiny flowers to work with, instead of big ones. Although I should say I’d loved to use them 🙂

I was clear about the composition I wanted, as it is pretty simple and follows the line of the photo. So I first made a draft composition over the background, placing the photo and cheesecloth to make clear how to work. Then, I played with my mediums on the background (paper from Adventures collection), adding texture crackle paste and blue-teal ink in the downside of the paper. Afterward, I painted some resins to match the photo topic.

Composition turned to be easy as I wanted just some embellishments on it. My stash was full of great things and I chose some layered embellishments, Wishing bubbles, Maritime laser cuts, and some tiny sea pieces. I also added some art stones. I set it aside and thought that was all. But my mind was thinking about adding some chipboards to add movement to the final layout. So I took some cogs chipboards and covered them with sand texture paste. When it was dry, I painted it with a mixture of blue and teal inks.
