Admiring the Sunset with Uncharted Waters

Hi Everyone,

I have created this layout using the lovely UNCHARTED WATERS collection by Kaisercraft. This collection is gender neutral, making it perfect for all beachy themed photos and projects. I just love this collection with all the shells, beach creatures and boat related items! Since blue is my favourite colour, I love this collection for its colours too and because it is very suitable to co-ordinate in those mixed media effects. I had a bit of fun incorporating a few mixed media techniques in this one, using gesso, KaiserMists, texture paste and stamps!

To create this layout I followed the steps below:

  1. Take four sheets from the PAPER PAD – UNCHARTED WATERS and your photo. Trim all to 12.5 x 9 cm and firmly distress the edges using PAPER DISTRESSER. Layer each sheet behind each corner of the photo and set aside.Admiring the Sunset with Uncharted Waters 2Admiring the Sunset with Uncharted Waters 1
  2. Trim SHALLOWS – UNCHARTED WATERS COLLECTION to 30.5 x 30.5 cm and distress edges. Take some DINA WAKLEY WHITE GESSO 4OZ and mix with some KAISERMIST SPRAY INK – BROWN 50ML, then paint waves using a wide paint brush where you plan to add your photo.Admiring the Sunset with Uncharted Waters 3
  3. Paint some water diluted KAISERMIST SPRAY INK – NAVY 50ML using a paint brush onto the layout.Admiring the Sunset with Uncharted Waters 4
  4. Add more KAISERMIST SPRAY INK – BROWN 50ML in the same way as the Navy mist. Once dry, use the CLEAR STAMPS – UNCHARTED WATERS COLLECTION with KAISERINK PAD – CHOCOLATE to background stamp shells and use KAISERINK PAD – BLUE HAZE to stamp some anchors in the “misted” area.Admiring the Sunset with Uncharted Waters 5
  5. Transfer the pattern of BUBBLES 6X6 DESIGNER STENCIL onto the layout using TEXTURE PASTE.Admiring the Sunset with Uncharted Waters 6
  6. Take some hessian ribbon and the bottom strip from SHALLOWS – UNCHARTED WATERS COLLECTION and glue across the layout at ~7 cm from the bottom for the layout. Foam tape layered photo to the layout, over the ribbon.

  7. Take some of the PAPER PAD – UNCHARTED WATERS off-cuts and make two bow bottomed banners, layer them in the top right corner with some hessian ribbon,  CHEESECLOTH GAUZE, and a pop-out embellishment from the  PAPER PAD – UNCHARTED WATERS. Add some more pop-out embellishments around the photo.Admiring the Sunset with Uncharted Waters 8
