Hi there everyone! I have a super fun summer layout for you today! This one kind of came together by accident but I’m so glad it did!
To cut a loooooooooong story short, I decided to make a mixed media background using my brusho powders. I gessoed the page, sprayed it with some water and then sprinkled the powders on and watched the magic happen. Its soooooo cool watching the colours form!
Anyway, the background I wanted needed to be turquoise and as you can quite clearly see – this is not that! So I put it to one side and started again. A few days later I was flicking through my to-be-scrapped-photo-pile when I came across this awesome photo and I decided to have a play.
I knew it needed a small cutfile that would sit on the blue part of the background so my summer fun combo was perfect!
I backed the whole cutfile with some woodgrain paper from a 6×6 pad in my stash and propped it up on foam. I used the same to back the photo along with some odd netting material which was also hanging around in my crafty drawers – it worked perfectly!
I then began embellishing using some pieces from an old Kaisercraft collection keeping to wood-like tones and in line with the diagonal direction of the background.
The final addition was this little wooden fence piece which gave a real beach feel!
Happy scrapping and stay safe,
