Hi Everyone Kerrie here with a layout created using the
NEW Couture Creations Sea Breeze Collection
I created this layout for a class I taught last month in Brissie and loved it so much I thought I would share it as my blog post for the Couture Creations Blog

I love this photo of Bezzie, Leith and I taken on a stop off in Vanuatu while we were cruising earlier this year


1.       Firstly when cutting papers, Keep all barcode strips
2.       From Collecting Shells paper cut a piece 25cm x 25cm from the center, giving a 2.5cm border
3.       Distress the edges of both pieces and then ink the edges
4.       Cut from Adventurous paper the top section to create a swag
5.       Also cut from Adventurous paper 1 x 15cm x 7.5cm, 1 x 16.5cm x 11.5cm and 1 x 12.5cm x 6cm
6.       Cut from Windy Beach paper 1 x 13cm x 11.5cm and 1 x 6cm x 9cm
7.       Lightly and roughly paint the outside edge of border piece, set aside to dry
8.       Paint Embossing folder using Forest Green paint and randomly stamp onto 25cm square piece of Collecting Shells paper along the bottom 3rd section
9.       Using a finer paint brush flick some paint splatter to the top 2/3rds of piece, set aside to dry off
10.   Paint metal charms using Forest Green paint and set aside to dry
11.   Add some water to paint to create more of a wash effect and paint fence die cut, while still damp scrunch the fence to give some character, set aside to dry
12.   Grab barcode strips and tear Collecting Shells strip down to 24.5cm, Cut Windy Beach strip down to 8cm and Adventurous down to 5cm,
13.   Distress the edges of all papers and base cardstock
14.   Ink all the edges using brown ink pad
15.   Using foam mounting tape adhere the border to base cardstock
16.   Use Turbo Glue Pen or Double Sided Tape to adhere center square down inside border, do not place tape or adhesive right to the edge as you want to be able to curl the edges back, giving a more distress and shabby look
17.   Adhere paper swag
18.   Adhere Muslin across the top, then add portions of fence
19.   Layer on Collecting Shells barcode strip
20.   Layer all papers to go under photo, I stapled them together and then adhered them as one piece
21.   Add photo and adhere Wood Veneer title (you can paint it if you like)
22.   Run a line of Turbo Glue on either side of photo cluster and add broken shell pieces
23.   Embellish with netting,  glass vial and ships wheel charm
24.   Add barcode strips to top left and embellish with compass charm and twine

25.   Finish off with a sprinkling of pearls

 Happy Creating
