I simply love the Textured Vinyl Paper…it’s white & clean, yet has a lovely texture to it.  The perfect base/backdrop for this fresh beach layout.  The whole page is framed with the White C-Flute Paper, which I misted with the Crushed Shells Glimmer Mist & Splash Chalkboard Mist.

I’ve cut out a couple of words from the Nautical Words Paper & spread them throughout the layout.  These are great for beach titles and sayings/journaling for your summer/vacation projects.  For my journaling, I wrote on the Corduroy Paper & cut them into strips.  This paper is like vellum, with a beautiful stripe effect.

I’ve cut the Brushed White Cotton Paper in circles & misted them with the Dragonfly & Marigold Glimmer Mists, & Chalk Chalkboard Mist.  A delightful combination of colors indeed.  It’s all finished off with some chipboards with strings, some extra layers of papers & stamping here & there, & voila!

We hope you’ll join our July Summer Challenge.  There’s more beautiful inspiration from my felloe creative crew members here, so do check them out.  I would sure love to win our amazing prize pack!  We cannot wait to see what you create 🙂 .
