Nudgee Beach

Scrapping some photographs from February this year... a summer afternoon walk with the hubby and the dog.

This layout was inspired by the colours in the Scrapbook Boutique August mood board - green, grey and charcoal:

The design is based on the August sketch at Kaisercraft.  The papers are from two older collections, and I did LOTS of fussy cutting:

Kaisercraft Pickled Pear - Thyme patterned paper
Kaisercraft Lil Primrose - Fancy Dress patterned paper
Kaisercraft Rhinestones - Mint Green gems
Carolee's Creations AdornIt - Rugged alphabet stickers

10/09/2016 EDIT TO ADD:  Thrilled to be selected as the winner at Scrapbook Boutique!


This layout was inspired by the colours in the Summer Hideaway mood board at Berry 71 Bleu... some nature shots this time, from the shady part of the wetlands walk:

I used a sketch that I found at En Liten Butik.  The lovely Anna Uhras (who used to be a team mate at Pixels and Paper) is a guest designer there this month, so I linked across to take a peek.  I included the extra criteria too:  misting (masked edges), stitching (sewing machine) and three patterned papers (I used more).

A little detail shot:

Kaisercraft Pickled Pear - Thyme patterned paper
Kaisercraft Lil Primrose - Fancy Dress patterned paper
Crate Paper Crush - Kelp patterned paper
Becky Higgins Project Life - Jade Edition patterned paper
Vintage book paper
Green Tara 38mm - Lime Green mesh ribbon
Carolee's Creations AdornIt - Green Foam alphabet
EK Success Whale of a Punch - Dragonfly punch
Ranger Dylusions - Ground Coffee ink spray
Baker's twine
Gold sequins
