Under The Sea with Deep Sea

Hello,

Karen here with my last project using the Deep Sea collection. I have had this photo for seven years waiting to scrap.  It’s of Gracia and Josh when they were 18 and went travelling around Europe between finising their A Levels and starting University.  I think they were staying on a Greek Island but no matter it’s a lovely photo and this range is perfect for scrapbooking it.

Under the Sea layout

For this layout I have used Kaisercard in Caribbean, Sea Floor and Snorkel papers, Collectables, border strips from the 6.5 x 6.5 pad, Turtles 6 x 6 designer stencil, Kaisercraft ink pad – Peacock and Bliss pearls.

I started by cutting .25 inch from the top and right side of the Sea Floor paper and adhering it to the  Caribbean card.  I then used the Turtles 6 x 6 designer stencil and Peacock ink pad to add seaweed to the bottom of my page.  I used a scrap of paper to mask off the areas of the stencil I didn’t want to use.  I think this gives the illusion of the turtle swimming behind the seaweed.

I then created a ‘sea bed’ using two border strips from the  6.5 x 6.5 pad and a branding strip from one of the papers (sorry can’t remember which one) and added shells, starfish, seaweed and turtles from the Collectables pack.

I added my photo and used more Collectables and a turtle cut from the Snorkel paper to make a cluster at the top right of my photo.

Finally I added more turtles from the Collectables and Snorkel paper with little Bliss pearl bubbles rising from their mouths.

This was the perfect paper range for my photo and I am delighted with the finished page.
