Two more beach layouts

It's summer, and I'm in the mood for scrapping some more beach layouts!

The first one was inspired by the January challenge at ARTastic:



This is the artwork prompt, a painting called Bondi Scene, by Isabelle May Tweddle:


I took inspiration from the beach scene, and I used torn papers to mimic the breaking waves. For me, summer and the beach go hand in hand!

I used the January sketch at Stuck?! to build my layout.

Materials:
Bo Bunny Country Garden - Charm patterned paper
Bo Bunny Mammarazzi2 - Oh Snap patterned paper
Basic Grey Serenade - Dowager patterned paper
Kaisercraft Rhinestones - Silver gems
Green Tara Mini Tassel - 15mm white ribbon trim

08/02/2016 EDIT TO ADD:  Selected as a winner at ARTastic!

The next layout is a companion page to the one above.  It's for the blog sketch challenge at  Bo Bunny:



I used Bo Bunny papers and doiley on this layout. I used stitching and cotton tangles to add some texture:



I'm also sharing this layout at Clique Kits for the Anything Goes theme.

Materials:
Bo Bunny Country Garden - Charm patterned paper
Bo Bunny Mammarazzi2 - Oh Snap patterned paper
Bo Bunny Medium Doiley
Kaisercraft Rhinestones - Silver gems
