Welcome to my Try It Tuesday Wednesday Special.
I am currently cursed with a lack of natural light to take photos with. Roll on the good weather and longer days I say. Like I said yesterday, with being back at work and trying to fit it good Mum and Summer time during the afternoons, I am lacking a bit of time to fit everything in. I definitely need one of those Time Turners as used by Hermione in Harry Potter to fit more in to my day. So all in all, I would like to apologise for the lighting in these photos. Hopefully, once the rain/snow ends I might get the chance to take some lovely well lit pics again.
So this months scrapbooking class was inspired by the beach. Several of my lovely regular ladies have recently returned from a special cruise of the Caribbean. In honour of their once in a lifetime holiday I designed these pages for their fab holiday snaps.
This first page was Crumb Cake layered on to Baja Breeze 12"x12". We lightly sprayed the Crumb Cake layer with a blue spritzer (water + reinker). We then created the waves with torn strips of Tempting Turquoise, Pool Party, Baja Breeze, Pacific Point and Marina Mist. We created a Pin Wheel with the Pin wheel sizzlet and Tea for Two DSP. The hexagons were cut after I embossed lengths of Sunshine and Sprinkles Designer Series Paper with the Honeycomb embossing folder. Once embossed it is super easy to cut the shape of the individual hexagons. We finished with a title stamped in Island Indigo using the Notable Alphabet.
The second of our beach pages used the lovely By The Seashore stamp set as its focus. The colour scheme is Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Basic Grey & Soft Suede. We stamped the background and layered our photos on to First Edition Speciality Papers and tore the edges (and daubered the edges). The embellishments used are Linen thread, mixed Neutrals buttons and buttons from the Naturals Designer Buttons set.
All in all, we had a lovely class and I think we all really enjoyed creating these two beach related pages.
