I was thrilled to receive the new Seaside Cottage collection.
I love the beach and being near the ocean. It's my ideal vacation and I go there any chance I get.
I don't live near the ocean, but whenever I go, I love taking photos on the beach and near the water.
I also love collecting shells and then using them on my projects.
I've created three beach themed layouts below.
Here is the first one:
I used the Embark paper from the Seaside Cottage collection for the background. I stencilled it with a fish scale looking pattern and sprayed it with blue ink.
The Seaside Frame and Flourish were embossed with Blue Fern Studios Oatmeal embossing powder. Then I gave it some blue touch-ups. The calm title was painted in blue and then covered in clear glittery stickles.
Finally, I added Blue Fern Studios flowers and some seashells I collected during one of my trips.
"By The Sea"
Here is my second layout for this month using the Voyage paper from the Seaside Cottage collection.
I actually cut the background paper in half and connected the two edges in the middle so the sail boat would be in the center. Then I used some paste and stencils to create some wave like pattern to cover the seam.
I used the large Blue Fern Flourish chipboard to give the photo some wave-like movement. I embossed the flourish with Sea Mist embossing powder.
As a title I used part of the calling cards paper and then added some Seaside Lilies, roses and other Blue Fern Studios blooms. I also added shells of course.
"The end of a perfect day"
This is my third layout this month using the Regalia paper from the Seaside Cottage Collection.
I loved creating texture behind my photo by using cheese cloth like the second layout above. I also used Blue Fern Studios blooms and shells like in my other layouts
To mat the photo I used a couple of pieces from the calling cards paper. I also used the "Seaside Charms" and "The end of a perfect day" title to embellish the layout. I embossed them with the Sea Mist embossing powder.
Thank you so much for visiting the Blue Fern Studios blog!!
Have a wonderful day!!
