Seaside Cottage and Tranquility collections with video by Wilma Voermans

So happy to show you two layouts with the new Seaside Cottage collection.
It was a last minute, since I just got my papers in, but I managed .
Scrapbooking is a great hobby to  relax after busy days at work :) 

My first choice of the collection is this SUPER background paper.
It is the B-side from the Mermaid paper.
The Seaside collection has a lot of great background papers for more masculine pages.
And the boys have to be scrapped too .

I am not sure or I  did it ever before, 
but I found out that alcohol ink is perfect for coloring chipboard.
It dryes quick, covers in one time and gives a beautiful mat finish.
Besides that it soakes into the chipboard ,  so the sides are colored too.

In the background I used Gold embossing powder and two  colors alcohol ink.
If I may say so myself...LOVE IT 
Chipboard that I used:
Celebration heart
XOXO set
Ornate frame
Number Grid small

The second layout I made is also from the Seaside Cottage collection.
Its called Gala.
And yes, also the B-side..
I just love that paper with the Italian map image and the beautiful old color rosa.
The ornate frame was first embossed with oatmeal.
After that I brushed it with distress ink which was the right color for me.
I gave it a quick spray with a sealer to make the ink stay.
In the background I used Ginger embossingpowder

My last layout is made on a pattern paper from the Tranquility collection.
I can explain what I did, but it is much easyer to watch the video I made .
A start to finish process video.
I hope you find the time to watch it here:
