Fresh Air & Sunshine – Coastal Escape

Hi Everyone,

Linda here with a final project using the gorgeous Coastal Escape by Kaisercraft.

Hope you all have had a lovely Easter!

IMG_0361 smallI began with Coconut Kaisercard this time, and cut “rays” of paper from Seagrass, Netting, Palms & Coral. The approximate measurements are shown below, there is a 1/4″ gap between and around.

IMG_0356 smallI love how versatile these are – remember they don’t have to be sprayed every time as you will see…………..

I then cut a strip from Discovery approximately 8 x 3 1/2″ and place @ 2″ from the bottom.

IMG_0362 smallA piece of burlap was cut 6 x 7″  (from a 6″ roll) and the stitched edges removed. My photograph is 3 1/2 x 4 1/2″ matted onto a lovely piece from the paper pad with starfish on. Once fixed to the burlap, I frayed the edges leaving a small border – this was then stuck in place bottom left @ 1″ in. I cut several fronds out using the Native flourish and also Daisy and coloured elements using Squeezed Lemonade and Turquoise KaiserMist and a brush – they paint beautifully and sparkle once dried. These were place top right and bottom left of the photo.

IMG_0363 smallLots of Collectables were added too along with punched circles from Coral, Shells (12×12 and the paper pad) & Seagrass. Dimension was created with mounting foam tape.

IMG_0364 smallThe threads removed from the burlap were tied into a knot and added to the layout to create more texture.

I hope you have enjoyed my Coastal Escapes, more from my fellow teamies to follow soon.

Until next time, take care,

~ Linda ~
