Layout using Simple Stories and a Dylusions background

As Emma was a swimmer, she was keen to get Madison in the pool as soon as possible! So Nana went along with the camera to get the first photos! So cute!! I only took about 99!! They will probably ban me next week if I turn up with the camera!

For the background, I started with a piece of white cardstock and sprayed it with Dylusions London Blue and Lemon Zest. Then sprayed with Perfect Pearls Sour Apple to blend the colours and give a little shimmer.
While it was still wet I sprinkled over seasalt crystals and left to dry. They absorb some of the colour and leave a mottlty effect. Brush off all the salt when dry.
The Prima chevron mask and some texture paste completed the background.

I covered the chipboard rings with Tim Holtz crackle paint, Broken China.

Apart from the wsahi tapes and tag, most of the embellies and fussy cut papers are Simple Stories, Vintage Bliss. The Simple Stories line has the perfect papers and stickers etc for your 'Project Life' albums as well as layouts and cards.
