Ocean Breeze with Coastal Escape

Hello everybody!

Emmy here today with a brand new layout to share. This month I have the pleasure to work with Kaisercraft’s Coastal Escape collection {available at Merly Impressions online store}. I love the colour palette of this paper line – not the usual summer colours, but so much better!

MI-ocean-breeze-webFor my background I used Kaisercard Duck Egg Weave Cardstock and Burlap Roll – 15cm. I cut two 15cm long pieces from the Burlap, removed a few treads from their side ends and adhered them to the Cardstock using Kaisercraft 12mm Double-sided Tape.

To create the white dimensional layer I used Texture Paste and Damask Quarters 12×12 Stencil. Once the paste has dried, I sprinkled KaiserMist Spray Ink – Turquoise on top. TIP! Leave the Texture Paste layer to dry completely, before adding the Mist. The paper may curl, but when dry will flatten out. MI-ocean-breeze-det-a (12)I distressed the edges of my picture using Paper Distresser and then I adhered it on top of a layer of Kaisercard Coconut Weave Cardstock and a layer of Kaisercard Latte Weave Cardstock. I adhered the different layers with Mounting Foam Tape.MI-ocean-breeze-det-a (2)I fussy cut the shells from Sea Shells gloss paper, embossed them slightly with Embossing Tool and arranged them around my picture. I used also Paper Blooms – Sage, the Collectables pack and die cuts from the mini Paper Pad to complete my design.MI-ocean-breeze-det-a (9) MI-ocean-breeze-det-a (10)My title and most of the quotes come from the Sticker Sheet matching the Coastal Escape collection.
