Wild + Free with Deep Sea


Karen here with the first of my projects for January using the lovely Deep Sea Collection.  As soon as I saw this paper range I knew the exact photo I wanted to use – one of Gracia when she was about 18 month and her first experience of bubbles.


For this scrapbook page I have used :-

Anemone and Sand Bar papers plus the corresponding bubble and anemone papers from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad.  Kaisercard in Duck Egg,  Deep Sea Collectables,  Deep Sea  Clear Stamp Collection, Decorative Die – Double Bubble, KaiserInk Pad – Pigment White Mini Ink Pad – Lagoon, KaiserMist – Turquoise and Pearls – Bliss.

I started by gutting a 1 inch frame from the Anemone  paper.  I then trimmed 1 inch from the bottom and one side of the Duck Egg card and stuck this to the centre of the Anemone frame – bubble side showing of the paper and smooth side of the card.

Next I used the bubble paper from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad to cut a 5 in square photo mount.  I laid this onto my page, drew around it with a pencil and set it aside for later.

From white card I cut three Decortive Die – Double Bubbles and arranged them around the drawn square.


I then used the bubble stamp from  Deep Sea  Clear Stamp Collection and  Pigment White and Lagoon, to stamp bubbles onto my design.


Some anemones were fussy cut from both the Anemone  paper and 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad as I thought that they also looked like bubbles.

The photo mat was added to the page but I made sure that it was not adhered to close to the edge so that I was able to slip some of the anemones underneath.   I stuck down the fussy cut anemones into available spaces and splattered some KaiserMist – Turquoise.


After adding some die cut bubbles and the ‘Wild and Free’ title to my page from the  Collectables pack, I cut ‘Always Keep Room ….’  from the Sand Bar paper and placed it bottom right of my photo.



The final touch was to add some  Pearls to my page as additional ‘bubbles’.


I am pleased with my ‘bubblicious’ page and am plotting and planning what I am going to make next.
