Creative Embellishments Layout with Graphic 45 Sun Kissed

It's that time of the year when I think many of us are suffering from the winter blues and yearning for summer.  This layout will definitely make you forget about winter, if only for a moment.

 I've combined some great chippies from Creative Embellishments (CE) with Graphic 45's new Sun Kissed paper collection.  I mixed tan acrylic paint and gold glitter with Prima's White Sand Texture Paste to create my sandy beach.  I anchored CE's seagrass chippies stained with Lindy's Starburst mists in the sand.  Over on the right is a cute little chipboard crab nestled in amongst the navy Little Birdie flowers.

The photo is framed with a chipboard Steampunk Chain Frame that is heat embossed with Stampendous Aged Marine Embossing Enamel.  The frame also comes with gears that I buried in the sand.  They get their rusty look from Lindy's Starburst Mist.

  1. What a spectacular layout! The colors/design is so perfect that the photo is a seamless blend into the overall design while still remaining the focus. I learned so much just from studying your layout. tfs

    1. You are such a dear, thanks for stopping by and leaving such kind comments!

  2. I always preorder a few pads and accessories packs when G45 has a new collection coming out. When this one was released, I have to admit, I was a bit flummoxed about how to use it.
    You have combined the papers beautifully and done some terrific mixed media techniques to enhance the images.
    I think you've scared away my distrust of the collection - LOL - I'm ready to go at it, now.
    Thanks for sharing.
