"Always and Forever" - DT creation for The Scrapbook Store

A very warm welcome to you.
I have, today the second of my Design Team creations for July for The Scrapbook Store. As previous I am using Graphic 45's "Gilded Lily" collection. I think I could scrap forever with these precious papers. And again I have used a wedding photo in sepia tone to keep with the softness of the patterned papers.
I have titled this layout .........
"Forever and Always"


This layout I wanted to keep quite simple to leave the focus on the photo.
I started with staining some cheesecloth in tea and once it was dry I draped it to the left and right of the photo to extend the beach on to the layout.


I have used a beautiful title chipboard from Blue Fern Studios "Always and Forever". This was inked then crackled and then inked once dry. The Dusty Attic chipboard bird was simply gessoed and inked.


The Dusty Attic Marrakesh Trellis was treated with Liquid Pearls to make it pop off the page.


From another angle.


As with most of my beach layouts I like to incorporate shells which I have also done here. I found this beautiful partly damaged shell which I have sat a pipi shell on top of and then added a Graphic 45 sticker word to the centre of it with a little more cheesecloth draped through the shell.


I have torn a piece of a frame from the patterned papers to sit behind the left top and bottom right of the photo to mount it.


Here is a better view of the stacked shells with a little piece of dried seaweed tucked behind.
Keep scrolling for the materials used.
Thank you for visiting me here today and I hope to see you back very soon.
