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.
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.
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.
