Exploring Santorini Layout - Couture Creations

Hello there everyone, hope you week has been good to you, I am super excited today and I am sharing with you all another paper creation for Couture Creations. With the latest release papers 
SEA BREEZE designed by Denise Boddey.

Today, I have created a special layout with the Sea Breeze Collection PackThe collection pack included 12 papers (6 designs with 2 of each) and a sticker sheet. I also used one of new Sea Breeze die called 
"Collecting Sea Shells" C0724695

"Exploring Santorini" layout by Adriana Bolzon

Firstly, I created a little textured piece for the bottom of my photograph with corrugated cardboard, some white gesso and White Net C0724733. 
Just apply some white gesso to the roughly cut corrugated cardboard and gently add some of the new White Netting, the gesso should act like a glue for this. Apply gesso all over the white netting as well.

I then added some colour with inks and sprays, till I was happy with the end result. Have a fun play yourself, its great fun. I also later added some tea coloured muslin for extra texture.

I matted my photograph with a couple of layers different coloured card stock and layered them top of each other, some layered with foam tape and other with just double sided tape.

I placed the photo in the centre of Sea Breeze paper and adhered the corrugate card stock under the photo.  I cut two of the Sea Breeze "Collecting Seashells die" C0724695 and rubbed some vintage inks over the top to colour them in. Glue them on either side of the photo.

Spray inks on all the White flowers, apply some Giltzin Glitter Glue in the centre of flowers, Fuzzy cut the Lighthouse and all the shells and label piece. Attach these with foam tape to the layout as shown below.

Arrange and glue down the shells, flower and lighthouse as shown below.

Fuzzy cut the Banners from the Sea Breeze papers, adding other cut out triangles and some string tied in litre bows. Attach with foam tape to the top left hand corner of layout. 

Add some Glitzin Glitter Glue to the shells and flowers. 

Stamp sentiment "Explore" and attach to the bottom of photo.

Ink all the edges of the layout, sprinkle some vintage paint over the top and bottom of layout.

So that all for today, I hope you like this collection as much as I do, here below are all is the links to the latest online magazine and with some wonderful creations to inspire you all, and also links to the all the products.
