Beside the Sea

The days are whizzing by in the run up to Christmas and there isn't much time for scrapping. I did manage a layout for Creative Craft World last weekend but it's taken me until now to share it with you.

When I first saw this sketch I imagined scrapping a picture of my daughter with a scattering of flowers, but it turned out rather differently. Most pictures that I have of her are either portrait or part of a set and I didn't want to alter the sketch that much, so I went hunting for a single landscape photo.

I came up with a picture of my son on the beach and teamed it with a beautiful water colour paper:

I didn't want to cover up too much of the paper so I used translucent items for most of the layout. I matted my photo on vellum, punched the edges and drew a simple silver frame around it. Then I moved the title to be part of my row of circles and surrounded it with clear epoxy bubble stickers. The journalling spot is a postcard, a digital element that I printed out.
