YEAH I scrapped! It sure felt good! Not too sure if I am happy with the results...but had fun doing it so... such is life!
The inspiration for my layout is a pic of my Dad taken in the early 80's. He loved the ocean even though he lived in the landlocked Midwest! He fell in love with it during World War 2 while serving in the navy. I think it gave him some calm & peace during such turbulent times. We lost my Dad in 1989. I miss him all the time & love remembering....
I used the Little Yellow Bicycle Vita Bella papers. They are several years old, but I love that collection! All edges were inked with Distress Ink : Aged Mahogany, Shabby Shutters & Broken China. The foil framing is cut strips ,also from the Vita Bella collection.
The little tags are Reminisce "By the Sea" die cut stickers.
I had a lot of fun making the net & waves. The waves are felt strips from Queen & Company & were originally white. I inked them with a metallic rub that i purchased on Joann.com (It is made by a company called Craft-T). I used the copper rub & highlighted it with Broken China Distress ink.
The Netting was a produce bag & I will be posting a tutorial on how I made it... super easy. I should have that up later today or tomorrow!
The die cut greenery what made by using a Quickutz Branch & Berries die, cut with my good old hand cranked Big Shot. I thought they looked a little "sea weedy". The shells & branches were dotted with gold Liquid Pearls.
I am making a real attempt to use up existing supplies! I seem to have hoarded quite a bit...Now to use it!!
Thanks so much for stopping by & sharing my layout with me! :)
