We’ve had some incredibly hot weather the past few weeks getting to the peak of summer. We spent most of the school holidays near the water and today I’m sharing a mixed media layout with Bella’s Seaside collection.
I had a blast fishing in the absolutely amazing Coromandel and had to have a photo taken of my snapper. I would definitely go back there for more great memories. Here’s my layout:
Bella materials: Stripe Seaside Paper, Cut Outs Seaside Paper, Fundamentals Alpha Wood Veneers
Ranger Distress Inkpads: Abandoned Coral, Salty Ocean, Chipped Sapphire, Foam Applicators
I wanted to bring out the colors of the snapper and get it to stand out, which led me to start with a blank canvas then layering Ranger’s Abandoned Coral and Salty Ocean Distress Ink on the page. I then trimmed a piece off the Cut-Outs paper and layered this at the top of the page to mimic the ripples of the water. For added texture, I stencilled some bubbles onto the page and let it dry completely.
I then layered some scraps from my stash and my photo on top, then adding the cluster with some fussy cut sentiment from the same paper, and some fishes from the Stripe paper.
For the title, I painted the Fundamentals Alpha Wood Veneers and then inked it with the same Distress Inkpads. I then adhered this under the photo and added more shading throughout the page as I go along with the Distress Inkpads and Ranger Foam Applicators.
Thanks for popping in and I hope I’ve inspired you to create with Bella’s Seaside collection. These are now available to purchase at a Spotlight store near you, ar at the Ruby Rock-It Brands website HERE.
Now it’s time for me to cool off in the pool!
