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.
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.
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.
